    Hi everyone,

    Another Lexus Enthusiast Exclusive! Earlier this week I got a phone call from our friends at PCNY that they would be driving a black LFA from NYC to LA.....

    Now...

    lol..

    To make a long story short the owner is a fabulous guy (@trade_coin on instagram) and the LFA needs to be on the West Coast for a track event this weekend. Since it was too late to trailer it, the owner decided to have his good buds PCNY drive the car! They gladly stepped up to the challenge and if you follow their instagram (@PCNY) you can see some of the trip.

    We have been in constant contact since this journey began so we will post exclusive pics and info on the LFA's whereabouts.

    The owner of the LFA has owned various exotics and from my understanding the LFA is one of their if not their favorite. Let me also mention, it just passed, 30,000 miles on this trip!!!

    Pictures will be iPhone photos due to the real-time nature! Updates will be constant!!!

    Lets cheer them on!

    As for the seats, Wayne is a bigger guy like me so that explains the comfort issue... As you can see he loves it!

    Nice post. :)

    I'm with you on sports-car seats. They can be too confining for a lot of big guys........me included.

    Did they actually give you a ticket (I noticed 83 MPH on the digital speedo) or just want to check the car out?

    Seeing it dirty like that really validates the "supercar with daily driver reliability" concept.
