The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating Read Our Full Review
TCC's Bottom Line The 2012 Lexus LFA, like any supercar, is more of an emotional than a logical purchase, and if you can get over the fact that it's not the fastest even though it's one of the most expensive, it will serve well as a show-stopper.
