    We got a passionate bunch here lol. Let me clarify - I was expecting something similar to the concept, we got something similar to the concept. Despite expecting what was unveiled, I was still impressed (left in awe really).

    We need to spend more time on that drop dead gorgeous interior.

    Can't wait to see the car in ultrasonic blue mica 2.0 with black / blue contrast stitching interior.

    Let the rumours begin! What will power the LC-F? Boosted V8? Likely. A certain special V10? I can dream.

    Sure. There is an optional carbon fiber roof and active rear spoiler. I assume they will be bundled together.

    OMG this could be something that resemblances the difference between the F and the stock model. The first picture has a line on the trunk that looks a lot like an active rear spoiler that can go up at high speeds!

    There is so much thought put into the car on every part, seem to be more reason to do a certain thing a certain way. Like the windscreen water bottle location on the LFA!! One who owns these cars will appreciate such considerations on what I deem a special product!
