I think this car is going to have some tough competition with the 458 Italia and new McLaren.

I'm back on the Peak Oil scare bandwagon. Still, if money was no object, I'd be all over it in a heartbeat.

Nah Ive been waiting for someone else to start this one.

Do you guys realize the ask on it will be north of 300K?

Theres excessive, and then theres the LFA.

I can see it at 100 - 150, anything more is just stupid.

Ah well I suppose the same thing was said about the 2000GT back in '67.

Yowser 350k MSRP!! I think that is kind of a tough sell IMO :zzzzz: You can buy almost anything for that F40, 599GTB, LP670-4... now a days. I think Toyota blew this one trying to offer a car that offers similar performance to the 458 Italia and the new Mclaren for probably $100k more.
