Not sure if im keen on the rear end. 3 exhaust tips?

Although it looks like you could go wingless at the touch of a button, without having to put grommets in the holes

So many greater cars out there with better 'badge' appeal (coz you are only buying these things to get the girls wet) for that kind of money.

Had it been priced as a normal Lexus, probably would sell like hotcakes.

Don't think so, it automatically extends above 80kph, so unless you're just pimping thru freo, cott, trigg or leedy, it'll be up.

Have to agree with you there, extremely pricey. Why not just buy a fezza!

True but its for the wank factor - on the left of the garage is my Porsche, Fezza, Lambo and on the right is my R8, GTR, and Lexus etc.

People who spend 750k on a car are looking for something different than they have or have had.

Unfortunately no matter how good it's numbers are I just don't believe the modern Toyota can build anything that you sit in it and you just get that HUGE smile on your face like you would getting into a Ferrari, TVR, Lambo etc...

They got it right with the Supra ( Twin Turbo anyway ) but everything they have built in the last 10 years is technically very good, reliable well mannered and just so
