Red Lexus LFA @ Japanese Auto Show

Not only does this video from a Japanese auto show feature the red Lexus LFA, it also demonstrates a couple details about the supercar that I haven’t seen before (skip to 5:23 to get to the goods):

The two things I noticed were the turn signal and the massive, single-blade windshield wiper — admittedly, these are quite minor in the grand scope of things, but I still got a kick out of it.

Krew... I had nothing but time to examine the LFA and noticed all those things from the start, unlike the lucky person you are. We have yet to find out why there's a flat version of the turn signal on one of the Lexus LFA prototypes.
@WorldofLuxury: Haha -- when I first read your comment, I thought it said "unlucky". What flat version of the turn signal are you referring to? I'll see what I can find out. :-)

@WorldofLuxury: i think i have the answer it's so ease really i can describe the car even when my i closed :) you can check the video you found that the red car have the same turn signal as the white 1 and from its behind have the euro system just one for the reverse and the other that waiting indication the white one those are so different from the black matte one which 'll be the NA version but what i found interesting that their is 2 white 1 of them global and one euro the global 'll take the same signal of the euro with the behind of the NA

@FreeSpirit: Thanks for clarifying the region part; so I assume it's all a matter of regulations in how it all turned out? I'm having a hard time choosing which one looks better. Lexus should've had F-logos in those turn signals just as Chevy does with the ones on its cars.
Aha -- region would explain it. Thanks @FreeSpirit! 8-)

If you look at the windshield wiper carefully, it looks like there are two blades on one arm (a fixed one, on the arm, at the bottom) to catch what the articulated one misses... a good weight saving idea, that cuts down on the complexity of two arms.
