    As long as you can afford 3 base A90s, you should be good to go lol.

    ^^^ Ha ha hope it is a LC-F so everyone wanting a Toyota R35 GTR fighter can buy one and stop complaining about the A90.

    I know you hinted at it before but jesus christ, I never though Lexus could go that far in pricing and upmarket. The LC I felt was the highest they can go for a mass-produced vehicle

    Well, I've always assumed that an LC-F would be around NSX pricing. So 3 base A90s is about right and cheaper than my expectations lol.

    Look at the RC-F to the RC-F track edition that's a 30k price jump for those upgrades. An LC-F should be in super car fighting territory. I think (hope) the highest it'll be is around a new R35 Nismo pricing?

    While that is true, I'd figure it's a better term to use than the LFA that was certainly NOT mass-produced as that car costed 300k.

    You got me there.

    That's true, but I wonder how much they are going to crush the competition with a budget of price of 150k and what kind of stats and impressions are going to be noted when it eventually gets released. I just remember Performance crying at 150k but knowing it will be peak Toyota engineering.

    Yeah other members (*cough* @A70TTR ;)) knows a bit more than others about it's performance expectations. As for PerformanceSound.... I've always thought that guy was blowing a bit of hot air, b/c some of his stories didn't match up. But my expectations is Mclaren 570s, AMG GT-R type of performance for less, but not sub 140k.

    While that may be the case and I'm aware A70 said that a while, it just puts in perspective that one can have 3 A90';s or one LCF.

    Though, he seemed to love the idea of a LCF defeating the GTR and the other euro supercars.
