1. 2012 Lexus LFA

Finally, one of my favorite cars right now is the Lexus LFA. Looking at the other choices on my list, the LFA is a bit of an obvious choice. It was a car that Toyota took their time with, and used the same super-car formula that started with its classic 2000GT. With it’s ultra-modern looks and design, as well as unbelievable performance, the LFA manages to combine technology, reliability, style and character into one car, something that very few Japanese automakers can claim to do (Nissan GTR, I’m looking at you).

Just like Toyota did with the 2000GT, the LFA was a joint project with the team at Yamaha, but this time to finely tune the supercar’s powerplant. The truth is in the way it sounds: every time I hear the LFA, I get a paralysing sensation, like a a spectre just passed through my ears, with all the hairs on the back of my neck springing up in full attention.

It’s simply a brilliant car to look at, hear, and I imagine to drive. I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to drive one, but I wake up every morning breaking a far too enjoyable dream of actually being behind the wheel of one, (no wonder I’m such a morning person!)

    What year is this guy living in? There are more cars from the ’60s and ’70s on this list than anything else. Get with it!

    The only intelligent list on here… all the others had stupid cars that don’t even exist.

    Is it just me or are these lists sorely lacking in awesome American cars? Way to hate America, fuckers.

    Why was the open top (one off because Connery was to tall for it) cooler? The coupes lines are perfect.
