As car buffs, we all can’t help but be extremely jealous of Jay Leno. Not only does he have a collection of cars that most automotive museums would crave, but he also gets to drive some of the rarest cars in the world. This time around, he gets to drive the rarest version of one of the rarest cars in the world.
The Lexus LFA only saw a total of 500 examples built and that’s no mas. To boot, all 500 examples were never touched by anyone during the entire manufacturing and testing phase, as they all were required to wear gloves during the whole process. The 500th example of the LFA just so happens to be the only production LFA that lacks a key component: a roof.
Yes, this one-of-a-kind LFA is a real-life spyder. Not one that has a folding roof, a removable hard top, or even a rag top; it has no roof at all. So when you have a one-off model of a 500-model production car that no one in the production process is allowed to touch, what should you do the second it rolls off of the production line? Let Jay Leno beat the hell out of it at Fuji Speedway, of course.
Not only is the video awesome because Jay gets us a behind-the-scenes look at the manufacturing process, but you also get a good listen to the sweet sound of that 552-horsepower V-10 working hard. So what does Jay really think about the LFA now that he’s gotten it on the track and felt all the goodness that makes up this Lexus supercar. You’ll have to check out the above video to see.
