I completely agree. LF-A is a great car. I drove it at Monticello and on some backroads here in CT, and the car is hugely impressive. Great turn-in, fantastic sound and engine and really crappy gear-box. I was tempted for a bit, but at twice the price of the competition, it made no sense. I asked Lexus if they would just lease the car to me, but they were very eager to sell it, which tells you all you need to know about the value proposition down the road.I had the good fortune of being able to test drive the 12C, 458, and LF-A back to back the other day. The 12C killed the competition and the expericance made me even more eager to get my hands on mine (coming in June!!) but the LF-A was a real surprise. The car drove fantastic and the fit and finish is on a Rolls Royce level. If money was not object I could definitely see owning both cars; completely different experiences but both very entertaining in their own way. Was wondering if any other 12C owners tested the LF-A and their thoughts on the car?
