Lexus Welcomes New LFA Owners


Lexus has released the videos that are shown to new LFA buyers before receiving the keys to their newly acquired supercar — first, here’s a video welcome from Lexus USA General Manager Mark Templin:

Next is this short breakdown of the LFA’s white-glove journey from Japan to California:

And following it all up is a tour of the LFA with Paul Williamsen, National Manager of Lexus College, which is a pure dose of awesome:

This video is a must-watch — these smaller, more practical details about the LFA really take the car up to an extra level for me, something I wouldn’t have even thought possible.

(Thanks Allison!)

    Awesome videos! I think I’m now ready steal an LFA!!!

    in the first video… would it have killed the photographer to use a a god dam tripod….
    If you spend 300,000 + on the car and you don’t know how to pop the hood you have problems and don’t deserve owning an LFA lol

  • ThaDRD

    I find it amazing that the LFA doesn’t have SmartAccess (just grab the door handle to unlock and no key inserted to start car).

  • Pete

    @ThaDRD:

    smart access is ecu is just another couple pounds they shaved off the total weight

  • Travis

    The Sliver LFA looks wicked…

    That video makes me feel like I own a LFA LOL

  • Eljay

    You think you can´t possible fall deeper in love with that car,and yet you do with every new little piece of information,every video clip,every photograph,every lap driven in Gran Turismo 5. :-)

    In the 3rd video, it shows the lfa with a custom fitted car cover and battery charger. Does these come as standard or are they dealer optional extras? attention to detail to the max. Kudos LFA! By the way i may have pics to post about the lfa here from asia, can i submit to this awesome site.? Cheers :)

    In the 3rd clip, the lfa is shown with a fitted car cover and battery charger. Does anyone know if these are standard lfa accessories or optional extras. I read the car comes with designer bags as part of the car delivery. :-)

    I like the idea for the windshield whipper fluid in the same section as the gas :-) Plus thats cool seeing the battery behind the drivers seat.

  • RollaXRS

    As it says in the video, these are included with the standard LFA.

    What?! There is no proximity sensor / keyless entry for this $400k car!? I didn’t mind that you have to insert the key in the ignition. But seriously, even my 20k suzuki sx4 has that!

    I don’t like the LFA anymore… JK ;-)

  • toyotaclassics

    Oh… the quick release for the battery and charger are excellent accessories for the LFA. Knowing that most customers will be storing more often than driving the car.

  • Josh

    oh no…he said that the brake rotors were “carbon fiber” instead of carbon ceramic. How did he become manager of Lexus College?

  • Jesus built my Lexus

    Cool LFA fact: The seat belt has an air bag built into it

  • enthusiast

    I got to sit in an LFA and play with it a little (got to rev it too!). I couldn’t figure out how to make the tach move. I see now that it moves just to access the menu that is controlled by buttons on the steering wheel. I kept turning the knob to SPORT expecting something to happen and all it did was change color.
    I can’t believe they use the same hood release leaver as on my old Toyota Tacoma.
