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?
