The Lexus LFA (Now ~$1,000,000 CAD, ~$800,000 USD) is just about everyone’s favourite supercar - and it’s no surprise as to why. The handbuilt naturally aspirated V10 with its meticulously engineered exhaust note. The mind-bendingly fast sequential gearbox. The carbon fibre infused chassis. There are so many reasons why the LFA holds a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts all over the world. But will it live up to the hype and be the exception to the saying ‘don’t meet your heroes’? Watch as Thomas and James attempt to pick their jaws up off the floor and review this automotive legend. SUBSCRIBE!

Huge thank you to Drive Motorsports for making this possible. www.drivemotorsports.ca/ | @drivemotorsports.ca

And to Michelin Canada, for replacing the tires.

Thank you all for your kind words. We’re absolutely blown away by your comments. This was a truly special experience and our editor extraordinaire Karston did an incredible job with the final product. And yes, don’t worry. Harrison did indeed get to drive his dream car. 😉. Thanks again everyone, and stay tuned. We’ve got more wild stuff coming.

@Mez Oddly enough, most automakers, including German autos, do not make their own gas-engine turbos (they outsource it), while Lexus and Toyota manufacture their own, that's how they control quality and reliability. Mercedes do make their own Diesel turbos, though.

@Hotobu The infotainment system is mostly how people listen to music, the radio, and make phone-calls, and maybe use the navigation - all of which any Lexus can manage to do - and in fact for sound quality, Lexus is again usually at the top end, which might be more important to a lot of people than having compromised sound, but being able to check their instagram or whatever. Sure it's nice to have the latest wireless android auto etc, but it's not necessary. Yes, you are totally right a lot of people do base their buying decision on how flashy the gadgets are - those people are in my opinion, foolish, or at least not really interested in driving. Ultimately no matter what you buy it'll all feel out of date in a few years regardless, but the vehicles reliability, driving dynamics and personality remains.
Hotobu Aylar önce
@Matthew Sharpe This is a great reply if your intent was to miss the point. Other than a steering wheel the infotainment system is how people interact with the vehicle. Lexus is still a decade behind. It absolutely does play a factor in sales.

@Hotobu Terrible interior? Are you kidding? Lexus interiors are both beautiful and durable - sit in a BMW, then sit in the equivalent Lexus model, the BMW will seem like budget crap (because, really whilst BMW's look nice, they use shit materials in most of their interiors and when you interact with them you can feel it). Sit in an Audi and then the equivalent Lexus, the Lexus will feel just as premium, but won't creak when you press on things they don't expect you to touch. I'd agree the infotainment is always a couple of generations behind, but if that's the most important thing in a car to you, you have weird priorities.

The LFA will remain a testament to an era of mechanical art that's already seeing its sunset.

@Tiago Almeida >OP: "Said it was slower than everything it ran up against" can you even read? OP's comment above is FACTUALLY WRONG and I am factually correct. The LFA was FASTER than every production car in history it ran up against on the track when it was released. It's obvious you don't know the difference between a stripped down racer and a street legal production car. If those stripped down racers had to comply with all legal regulations, crash protection, pedestrian protection, protection from the elements etc and be able to drive on real roads including speed bumps etc then it's lap time would be considerably slower. The fact that you think legal production street cars should be compared to stripped down racers shows your ignorance.

@oot Making a distinction between them doesn't take the record away from them and just because the LFA was fast around the tracks, that doesn't mean the public received it well, which was the OP's whole point

@oot You're too quick to call people wrong without doing some research, you think I don't know about the Ring record ? It was the Nürburgring editon LFA and Motortrend said it was actually the 4th fastest time, all this is easy to find ☺️
oot Aylar önce
@Tiago Almeida You're wrong. LFA production years was 2011 to 2013. LFA broke the ring record in 2011. As I said LFA faster on the track than any McLaren F1, Enzo, Ferrari, Porsche, Zonda, Veyron, Lambo made before it and even the year after it started production.

this car proves that whenever Toyota is determined, they'll absolutely nail it no matter how much time it takes because they like to do things right. They own the economy car sector, hybrid sector, truck sector and with this one car they've won hearts of millions around the globe. I almost see no negative comments about it on any video or from any person. I doubt any car other than the LFA has had that kind of an effect ever before. I hope they do it right with the next LFA too but it's guna be hard in a world of new emission standards and shrinking engines. we might never see such a masterpiece ever again.

This is the best review of anything ever. The passion of these two car enthusiasts, their rapport and humor, and their emotional experience with this car was just beautiful. The editing was so good. I’m in utter awe. I never watch a youtube video more than once. I made the exception here. The pure happiness everyone exhibits, and the absolute love for their jobs everyone at TH exhibits just comes through here so much. The sound, the dialogue, the editing… That was 20 minutes of pure joy and fun, and I really wish it was longer.

Fun fact, the reason for the single clutch is because the creator of the LFA wanted the feel of the vehicles shift to mimic a manual shift so you can feel connected with the cars mechanics and still feel that shift thrust as you would with a manual. This was purposely done so you can enjoy the same excitement as the feeling you get from the manual.

I've been watching this channel since near it's beginning when it was just Thomas. I have promoted it on my own groups/forums for a few years now, and I've always been proud of the journalism and just great entertainment from fellow Canadians. While I've always joked around and called you guys the Canadian Top Gear, I've only said that as a means to express the quality of the content. I watched Top Gear as many did, never missed a show. But it wasn't just the cars, it was a part of my day where I was able to escape my daily issues and drama, and just laugh and smile...as I watched a few fools enjoy cars as I do. While the old Top Gear is long gone, Throttle House has long taken it's spot in this household as my escape from the real world, even if just for a moment. Thanks for the content, thanks the laughs.

I was listening to this one while working and at the end with the audio I closed my eyes to hear the LFA, my mind was quickly filled with serotonin and my body covered in goosebumps as my eyes teared up. It may sound odd getting this much emotional satisfaction through the simple sound of an automobile. However the fact is that it is no simple sound. It’s a sound that took years and dozens of engineers to produce. Products like this are not made for fiscal gain but to produce art and push limits and make new. That is what engineering is and that is what the LFA is and I can’t wait to be an engineer and to do the same.

This video may or may have not made me shed a few tears. It's not even the fact that they put so much good work in it, it's mostly because first of all, the LFA is one of my ultimate dream cars, and 2nd, those reactions... There's nothing that's faked, all these emotions... The LFA truly is a great car, this video proves it even more. I watched alot of videos on this platform in my 16 years of existence, but this, this is by far, the best video I've ever seen in my entire life. Thanks, Throttle House, for highlighting the car the way it deserved. Thanks for this emotional roller-coaster, and thanks, for letting people like me, who will probably never be able to obtain such a car, be a part of this. Seriously, thank you.

By far my favorite car of all time. Truly the definitionof a supercar. When everyone says Toyota makes beige and can't build a racecar/supercar, they didn't build the most powerful, quickest, or fastest car, they built a engineering marvel that is a rolling symphony of mechanical parts meshing together to bring forth a piece of art on wheels.

@Pwnage Only reasons the GTR is holding its value is because they increased the new price by 45% over the years and the current market supply is pushing up all prices in 2019 you could be of bought a 2017 Spec for high 60s low 70s. Check out Porsche’s ,Top end Audi RS Models , C8s all have increased in value the past 2 years

Ever since i saw the LFA for the first time i got that misterios F40 feel. It wasn't like any other supercar. From the beginning it felt special. Even just by watching a video and listening to the sound you can tell they focused on the development of the engine and then built the car around it. The engineers turned to Yamaha's professionals in order to tune the exhaust so it produces the most spine tingling sound possible. This is old school textbook Ferrari philosophy - build an astonishing engine and make it sound like angel and demon combined. No one builds cars this way anymore! This is the kind of car that captures the imagination and love of kids and turns them into car lovers for the rest of their life. The F40 and the Countach did it for my generation, the millennials, the LFA made sure this tradition will keep on. And i pray to every single god out there that it won't be the last of its kind .

Editing in all your videos are great, but this one feels on just another level! Great visuals, perfect sound mixing, fun commentary, this was a treat! And, obviously, the LFA itself is a marvel

Very awesome episode, as always, and I have to say, a while back I came here for the cars but James and Thomas are so awesome I'd watch them drive literally anything, they could do horse drawn wagon reviews, I'd still watch. Btw, can you imagine the infinite occasions they would have to do "horsepower" puns? :D

Thank you for making this incredible video, it made me so happy to watch it and the car is an absolute masterpiece. The part where Thomas sits there with a cigarette almost made me die laughing. But most of all, the respect you showed the car, the engineering, the build, quality, drive etc was so genuine and sincere that it made watching all the more special, as a viewer I felt a part of the experience which is a great achievement. Congratulations and please keep making videos, thank you again.

the 15 minute mark with Thomas brought tears to the eyes, for those who love cars and have a connection with the soul given to those cars by the engineers is something special not many will ever understand. People are forgetting that these are the final moments that we will ever have with these beautiful masterpieces the last of a generation driving into the sunset........ no EV will ever have the same feeling sure they're fast , sure they can be great looking but they feel robotic they feel dead inside

@Hansen Naidoo growing up I was obsessed with the Supra, and when this was announced I felt like it was the new version of the Supra they made to take on supercars. Similar shape with the short rear end and long hood. A next gen Supra dialed up to 11 to take on lambos and Ferraris of the era. I feel like anyone who loved the MK4 back then got very excited about this car

This was amazing.. I’m not sure I could’ve have held back the tears so well at the end.. this too is the one car I’d take above all others.. while other cars pump radio noise into the cabin.. the LFA puts formula tech into a luxury car daily drover wo the need for a 7000rmp idol to keep from stalling lol.. funny the only other car I’d be so emotional about would be the latest ACR viper but that’s a toy not a actually car that can be driven to work and back like this one..

The day Throttle House surpassed "old" Top Gear in production, filmography, writing, engagement and emotion was today. I take my hat off for Thomas, James and the crew at Throttle House. This is some of the best 20 minutes of video I have ever seen, period. I have never had this much goose bumps from a review before, this was truly an awesome piece of automotive journalism 🤩Wow, simply wow.

Mate I get it, they hail the car that all of us love, and yeah, the Hammond bit on the LFA with all the animations and shit is quite bad, but these guys can't come close to Top Gear production in years and years to come. I get it you like these two, I like them too, the intro jokes are not bad, production is good, editing is good, but mate come on, not even close to surpassing Top Gear.

Guys.. .. .. That was your Oscar episode!!!!👌 Kudos to the both of you for an absolute "Masterstroke" on this one. It's one thing, and an (easy one), to know and Adore the LEXUS LFA..... But both of you guys Effectively and Fully conveyed to the viewer "exactly" what it felt like to drive that car!! That's a tall order to accomplish... Very well done boys. They should have a "Best Picture", for a video upload on a TRvid channel. "Best Production", and " " Cinematography" on top of that!

@ThrottleHouse: I'm not exaggerating when I say we (the viewers) enjoyed that about as much as we possibly could. Thank you for the amazing video and the feeling we got from experiencing the LFA with you! This thing just touches the petrolhead in me so much it's almost scary. What a machine. Life goals! Although that may very well never happen I want to drive one.

I remember when the LFA first came out I was super turned off by the price. Granted, most people can't get their hands on these but we can still have our opinions on what's acceptable or not for a supercar. This LFA was priced wayyyy too pretentiously. It probably should've been priced around $150k-$200k range but it went for over a million. I think the interior was designed really well but the exterior seemed too lazy for it to be priced as exclusively as it has been. But with all that said, I think it aged well and I find this car more intriguing now than before.

I remember hearing about this online in my 20s, I used to google it all the time. I remember the LF-A being displayed as a prototype in 05 (I think) And I would just swoon over it. I remember when it was all scrapped and re built. When when the first one was made. In Australia, there are only 10 here. I've seen 2 of them in the flesh. This will always be my halo car. It would be a dream come true to actually drive one.

The MKV Supra has a lot of parallels to the LFA. Collaborative effort to build a sports car, widely panned as being overpriced upon launch. Wouldn't be surprised if the MkV hits legendary status like the LFA too.

Not a supercar, but to your point I bought a 2021 Toyota 4Runner w/all bells and whistles in late 2020 during Covid. Never driven one. My first thought was WTF?! Not sure where there attention was, but my 2021 fully equipped 4Runner was/is less impressive than the 2008 Limited V6 AWD Hylander I traded in. When I did some homework it seems the 2008 Hylander (major overhaul) got A LOT of Toyota's development team's attention for various reasons, and it showed. So I feel your pain on Toyota's bias/neglect. (they seem to take the, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mantra a little too serious.)
