• Lexus LF-A Number 499 Arrives in the United States

On December 14th, 2012, Lexus built its last LF-A supercar - a white Nürburgring Package Edition - specially developed for a museum. The last unit destined for the road – No. 499 - finally found its home. The model arrived in the U.S. as a birthday gift to Roy Mallady, who is already on his second LF-A – his first was No. 003. In fact, Mallady is a real Lexus enthusiast, as he previously owned nine other models: nine LSs, four LX SUVs and an SC400.

If you think that he is one of those drivers that buys a supercar just to keep it in its garage, you’ll be happy to know that his first LF-A already has 7,000 miles on its ticker and is already on its third set of brakes. So, why did he need a second LF-A? It’s likely because he finds it a "better track car than any Ferrari" and he just liked being watched while driving his supercar on the highway.

Who are we to disagree the man?

It will be nice that the Lexus LF-A Number 499 will be driven in different roads compared to keeping it in a garage. I just hope this Lexus car will be available not only in United States but it will be available globally.
