I've heard a rumour that the owner of a chain of Lexus garage in the NorthWest of England is getting one. Mitchells is the group name.

That is the only confirmed order according to Lexus GB.

That is the only confirmed order according to Lexus GB, but that was a few weeks ago..

If anyone knows someone who has ordered one, then I'd be very grateful if you could point them in my direction. I have a personalised plate that they might want to buy...

Cheers.

Only one has been licensed to be used on the road in the UK, so shouldn't be too difficult to track down. You may have competition though as I notice someone has taken the registration V10 LFA.

My mate over at 'Over the Rainbow' Carwash and detailing just washed it ready for a show: (Check out some of the other cars...I wish there was a drool pic lol)

See pics around 2/3rds of the way down... B)

If you guys are around the Hangerlane area, there is no better carwash in the area for the same Eastern European prices!! They use all top end products inc Autoglym and the two bucket method only.. you can't ask much more than that :winky:

It's right before Ace Cafe! You take the exit for Park Royal off the A406 if your heading towards Hangerlane (as if your going to Ealing Road the back way lol).

No they started as a 'proper' car wash that have now expanded to offer detailing at a very reasonable price. Like I said the car wash costs are the same as other places but these guys just go above and beyond those places in terms of cleaning method and products! B)

Damn just £5 for a wash?! I've paid the eastern europeans more than that in the past :hehe:

Any idea what their detailing prices are like? Sounds like a plan for the next I'm down at Ace, drop the car in next door and pick it up a bit later :winky:

lol, yeah he's looking to review the pricing at some point due to the costs of the products he's using are far above his competitors. He even snowfoams the car aswell!

Re detailing, he's only just started up and as with detailing it really depends on the condition of your exiting paintwork and amount of correction needed. Yeah take it down next time and speak to either Afif or Raj and say Purvesh from Evotechnik referred you. They'll sort you out as there looking for the word to spread first. :winky:

This beast is really rare as hen's teeth :(

I live just between Nice and Monaco and there are "quite a few" exclusive cars in Monaco and in the villages around here, I've seen everything, even 3 Veyrons parked next to eachother... but still trying to spot my first LF-A on the open road.

Just watched Top Gear on Dave on Freeview and they put the LFA thru its paces .... looks a fine Lexus to me.

Doubt I'd want to pay £340,000 for one tho'. But I might ..... if I won the Lottery and couldn't think that I would want to keep my LS400 .............. my preferred mode of transport no matter what ........ ... maybe it's an age thingy too.

My grandchildren would be amazed, shocked, stunned but above all, amazingly envious.

According to the salesman who sold me my car, yesterday, one LFA did a UK tour of Lexus dealerships in March/April. It was delivered on a trailer and put in the showroom on security pads for a week at a time. Would loved to have seen it.

A couple of pics of the showroom model doing the tour at Lexus Hedge End, near Southampton, back in May this year. I always find the sign above the bonnet in the 1st pic rather amusing.

There was a 61 plate Black LFA with beige seats and red carpets on Autotrader for £280k + VAT a few weeks back.Only had 300 miles on it as well.

EDIT - Oh BTW its still here! http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201309309029111/sort/pricedesc/usedcars/radius/1500/postcode/wf177rs/quicksearch/true/page/1/onesearchad/used%2Cnearlynew%2Cnew/make/lexus?logcode=p

Listed as an LX because theres no slot for an LFA!
