The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
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. The 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG stuns with visually catchy gullwings and a thundering V-8, but the rear styling, slow gearbox, and tight-fitting cockpit need more attention.
