Norwegian Town Removes Speed Bump for Lexus LFA Owner


Lexus LFA Owner in Norway

Rune Berge Vik, the only Lexus LFA owner in Norway, was having a problem getting his supercar over a speed bump on the route to his home. Very sensibly, he asked the local municipality to remove it — here’s the kicker, his request was granted.

(If this is an example of bureaucracy in Norway, no wonder Norwegians are the happiest people in the world.)

    Very interesting.

    I to question the purpose of these speed bumps.

    In Sydney, Australia the damn roads have been turned into a speed bump every 5 metres

    No one is slowing down at all, and if you slow down the people behind you will get very angry and rage.

    Is the true intention behind the speed bumps to cuase additional road rage and damage your car?

    It’s a great read. Loved the part where he says he could not afford the car but doesn’t smoke, eat out, etc and so he saved and saved until he got his dream LFA. The dark smokey granite color he chose was n honor of the same color on his first Lexus which made him fall in love with the brand, the IS200. Hmm, if I start saving now, LFA v5 in 2050?
