My (not so car savvy ) friend texts me once every few weeks saying he saw a black SLR (again). I know some people in central Arkansas have legit cash, but i still have a hard time believing him.

+1. As a supercar or exotic brand, no. I think of them as a luxury brand with an exotic or two in its line-up.

They may not be a supercar brand per se, but they do a damn fine job when they want to

Sitting in rush hour traffic in downtown Vancouver when i hear this nasty, loud guttural noise. Look to my left just in time to catch a glimpse of a gray Ferrari FF. Sounded siiiiick.

Then 10 min later driving south on Granville in the suburbs saw a maroon-ish Lexus LFA being driven by a dude no older than 30. First time seeing both cars in person. Couldn't get my phone out fast enough to snap a pic.

I agree, completely.

That's the first picture I've seen of one of those where I liked the look of the front.

Probably the wal-mart family, some branch of it at least. Went to school with the kids, and they really like their cars. They change them out frequently and usually drive something pretty exotic.

After living in Japan for a year, I have still not seen an LF-A on the roads. I thought that I'd see a few, at least, but not a single one yet. Have seen basically every other desirable modern car in existence out on the streets in multiples, but not an LF-A.

my friend taught english in japan, and he said people there tend to buy new cars so used cars are relatively cheaper.  he bought a used 5-series for a fairly decent price.  is that your experience?

 

and the LF-A is a super rare car.  there arent too many of those built.  i would love to see/hear one in person.

Yeah you can buy anything for beans once it's used 'enough' in Japan. Will still be in good condition but keeping it for more than a year or two turns into a hassle.

Nah, wrong part of the state. This is a middle aged dude anyways.

And yeah I was in awe when I saw the LFA. Absolutely crazy.

Have seen two new McLarens in Fort Worth this week, one orange and one black. First ones I have seen on the road. I guess these things are hitting the streets in bigger numbers now?

Good looking cars. Not quite at the level of the 458, but more exotic than the R8 and pretty clean and tight lines.
