• 2012 Lexus LF-A National Breast Cancer Awareness Edition

LISTEN 01:28

Earlier this month, we ran a top 10 column on some of the best pink cars we’ve ever seen as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The thing is, if this Japanese beauty was released earlier, it would’ve almost certainly made it on that list.

This pink Lexus LF-A comes by way of Lexus of Brisbane in Australia to show their support of National Breast Cancer Awareness month. It’s probably the only pink Lexus in Australia, maybe even the world, so you know that there’s a special uniqueness to it. And since it’s an LF-A, it’s got all-world performance credentials, thanks in large part to a 4.8-liter V10 engine that produces 562 horsepower with a 0-62 mph time of 3.7 seconds a top speed of 202 mph.

The car was built with the help of the Faingaa Twins, Ant and Saia, two brothers who play professional rugby in Australia, and more importantly, are both ambassadors for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Needless to say, these guys sure know how to make the kind of statement that resonates to a lot of people.

“Along with donations, auction items and support of the Fainga’a Twins Charity Golf Day, going pink is our way reminding all of Brisbane that October is the month of Breast Cancer Awareness,” said Lexus of Brisbane dealer principal Andrew Scifleet.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
