2008 Detroit Autoshow - Lexus ISF / LFA Roadster

No appropriate place to put these photos but here.

SO CHEEZY the ISF tailpipes are not connected to the mufflers.

Also Lexus has started the marketing campaign around "F" even before they have established the brand.....

Nice Venturi tunnels on the LFA Roadster

Perhaps, but I have yet to see a photo of the authentic exhaust then. Plus, you would think at a auto show when the car is already definately going to be released (no longer a concept) that it would have the production styled exhaust. Especially when its so soon to the release date.

Yeah, they must have taken the design from Bentley when created the GT in 05. Those exhaust also aren't connected yet the car costs $180k+.

Really, i did'nt know that. But you what the big difference is, it's a Bentley and most of all, this is a Lexus. So the criticism is not going to be the same.

I'm aware. Cheesy is still cheesy no matter how you slice it(no pun intended).

As much as I think Lexus's new(ish) styling direction is ugly, I'm happy that they at least established a brand identity across the model range. I can see how the LF-A relates to the others...in an ugly sort of way

Are those carbon ceramic brakes optional on the IS-F, or is it part of Lexus' performance line of products? Pretty sweet...
