Default 2010 Lexus LF-A

Official reveal is in a matter of hours, so I will just post this here.

It's a mess...but that interior is pretty awesome.

EDIT: Is that matte black an option!?!?!

I like everything about it except the front. They had so much time to design it right and didnt, but I assume (hope) its like that for a reason. Matte black would be awesome lol. And it sounds awesome.

Interior looks awesome, other than that this car is a complete mess. That front looks outdated already and looks kinda cheap for a car of that caliber. The rear is confusing, I still don't get it.

It looks totally boring. It has the road presence of a Camry.

Just noticed that the exhaust tip finishers are, like those on the IS-F, completely disconnected from the pipes themselves. God I hate that.

I for one love it. Yes, it's not gorgeous, but the interior is STUNNING, the sound it makes is chilling, and it looks to be one hell of a performer. I'm guessing the front looks like that for aerodynamic purposes; the design team went through like four different front end designs during the LF-A design to achieve that 200+ mph mark.

The IS-F is not that only performance car in the world that has disconnected finishers, I don't get why ONLY the IS-F gets all the bad rep for it.

All I can say is... FINALLY!!!!!!!

It was worth the wait, after reports and mule pic after mule pic, and a couple of production-close concepts, amid news/speculation that it was to be given the axe. Well... HERE IT IS!!! Outrageous, and I hope it gets to appear in New York/NYIAS next year.

it gets the bad rep because its the only car to do a funky arrangement of the pipes for aesthetic reasons and because its a lot more obvious. My cousin has an IS-F and its pretty easy to tell from a couple feet away thats disconnected. The real pipes dont even go in to the finishers.

Doesnt make it any less awesome to drive though (it is)

I used it for comparison because it is also a Lexus. And because it is particularly obvious on the IS-F.
