_"The LFA is so good, not even the people who made it, know how to make it again"_
Jeremy Clarkson
The LFA is a timeless design in my eyes.

To me it looks like it was released a year ago.
One of the best sounding cars ever built.

> *Spends 10 years making the best car they could possibly imagine*
> *Only makes 500*
If you ever feel useless, remember:

LFA comes with an audio system
We raid Lexus’ headquarters if they don’t make the 2021 LFA

Whos with me?

One of the best cars ever made IMO. Jeremy Clarkson once said it's without a doubt the best car he has ever driven. I'd call that some sort of a success... ;)
The only annoying thing about this car is the price, THAT IS LITERALLY IT!

I don't think anyone hated the LFA. It was just really really expensive.

I could actually see Jeremy Clarkson being James' dad haha
Yamaha: somehow went from making church organs to car engines and jetskis.

In the beginning when he said no one wanted one

Me: 🤨 I've always wanted one I am just broke is all

To me, this is the true successor to the last generation Supra. Although way more expensive, this is what the Supra should've been.

Wait, I just said it is the true, Supra! Lexus Supra!
3:36 that feeling when you stand up too fast
9:52 ,thank me later. Can't get enough of it.

Play it in 0.75x, 0.5x or even slower speeds.
The LFA didn't fail me, I failed the LFA.
Luke Wood
Luke Wood:
Some V10s are so tasteless that Inline-5s are more exciting. But not this one. This is the best, even better inside. Damn, Yamaha.
Fun fact
When the LFA is reversing at 2200 RPM it sounds like a semi passing
You can hear that in the musical road clip from topgear at the end
taco meat
taco meat:
Id love to own a LFA but they're so rare and expensive
It didn't failed, it's just that no one can afford it.
9:54 his face when that first rev hits is like the sweet relief on Christmas morning as a kid when you realize Santa didn't see any of the awful shit you did all year and you skirted by onto the nice list....again

4:39 is that a man, sitting in a wheelchair, holding a camera while he is beeing pushed by an other man? LMAO
2:18 what I said to my girlfriend.

The MC lives in a future where everyone uses quiet electric cars while he screams at them with that V10 symphony.

Considering that it had 300K miles on it when I got it, it was pretty good, even 20 years after it was new!

You know it's a really good car when Jeremy Clarkson loves it.
And you know they took it seriously when they got a Luthier to make it sound GOOD.

the LFA born perfect no need of aftermarket, they just needed to make more than 500 to get it cheaper

Billy Curtis
Billy Curtis:
The LFA is my all time favorite car. It is beautiful. Everything about it is amazing. I don't think I have ever seen a more stunning car in person. I want one.
I remember when it came out, I was amazed by this car, and I didn't understand how why anyone would criticise it. Why would you even care about the price when it freaking sounds like the F1 from golden years of V10.

There are 2 engine sound That i like in this world.
1. LFA
2. Mazda 787B
James: How can it rev so high? It has Forged Conrods, Aluminum Pistons etc

Me: Well maybe also because it was made by *Yamaha*

But on a serious note, Yamaha didn’t get enough recognitiom for the LFA or the MK4 Supra’s 2JZ
Man, i just discovered your channel and i find it amazing! The way you present things and say, the way your videos are edited. This is what a call QUALITY! Thank you for this AMAZING content!

James: *dad* ?
*they won’t make another cause there’s still 5 sitting in a Lexus dealer*
Jeremy Clarkson being James' dad would explain a lot. (I'm not sure if I mean this as a compliment or not)

9:44 never really seen a car just take off like that. The change of speed looks insane especially since no boost.
If I had the money, I would own one. Literally my dream car.
It works i mean i left the nürnburg ring with a time of 7:14 and it's from 2009
