    LF-A vs. 2012 GTR

    The LF-A is just plain overrated. I know it isn't all about drag racing, but come on, it's a $350k car, it should perform like one.


    I think I'd actually rather have the GTR, even if the LF-A cost 1/3 of what it does.

    I must admit that first shot of the LFA when it started really made my pants go up. It looked pretty agressive and mean the black is a sexy color on it. Its such a fail compared to the cars in 2012, this is a car that should have came out in 07 then it would have done some damage on the streets instead of your wallet.

    I'll stick to the Gtr or Zr1

    For $350k, I'd buy a used Murcielago, F430 and a GT-R as a daily driver Click here to enlarge

    The funny part is Lexus or should I say Toyota are still losing money on the car.

    if price was equal, i would take it anyday over the GTR, it looks better and sounds better and im sure once it has aftermarket tuning it could be a force to be resprected, if it was 1/3 the price.

    beside the 2012 gtr is even nastier than previous, im betting against the 2010 gtr it would be much much closer. traction seems to be the bigger player in the race shown

    If it was the same price, of course. I don't even know if I would rather have the LF-A over an F430.

    I would have rather had Toyota concentrate on making a new Supra than mess around with this LF-A nonsense.

    I think the GTR scared some car companies. Just think when/if Toyota makes another Supra. That thing will instantly be put against the GTR in just about every way possible. They are almost fighting a losing battle from the start.

    Yep but it would be great. Supra vs. GTR is where we should be, not comparing some $350k car to it.
