Jay Leno drives Lexus LFA Roadster in its motherland

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Jay Leno driving top-down in Lexus LFA Roadster

There is only one Jay Leno and there is only one Fuji Speedway. It turns out there is also only one Lexus LFA Roadster. Put them together and you have the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage. Leno, as you may recall, recently did a tour of Japan which previously saw him at Nissan discussing the future of the Z. In this video, the comedian heads to Toyota City to watch the LFA being built and then to Oyama, Japan to drive the aforementioned fresh-air version of the V10 supercar around Fuji.

Jay says this is the only roofless LFA that’s going to be built (we’re not sure what that says for the maroon model they showed at auto shows in 2008 – perhaps that one wasn’t a runner or it’s been repainted white). In this case, you can can take the word “roofless” literally – the top isn’t stowed somewhere, the LFA Roadster doesn’t have one at all. That never seems to curtail the enjoyment, however, with Jay exclaiming “Oh my God!” more than once and declaring of other supercars, “None feel as refined as this.”

The LFA Roadster, Jay’s Serious Driving Face, glorious V10 revving and a matte black LFA built for a Buddhist monk are all in the video below.

Vanity Fair asks auto writers what car they’d buy for $100k

Monday, October 8th, 2012

Filed under: , , , , , , ,

Porsche 911

As automotive writers, we’re always asked what our favorite cars are or which cars we would buy if we had the money. To answer the latter query, Vanity Fair writer Brett Berk polled 13 scribes to see what they’d pick for under $100,000. An interesting mix of vehicles ensues. Some of the choices stretched the imaginary budget to its max while others went all bang-for-the-buck on us, but what’s most surprising about the list is that more than half the cars on it are not available with a manual transmission.

Of course cars like the Porsche 911, Ford Mustang and a couple of Mercedes-Benz AMG cars make the cut, but there were also a handful of choices that caught us off guard. Jonny Lieberman of Motor Trend chose the Subaru BRZ, Autoblog weekend editor Alex Nunez would love commuting in a brown Tesla Model S Performance, and Jake Fisher of Consumer Reports picked the Hyundai Veloster… non-turbo!

Here’s the full list of what these 13 auto writers would take home if given a sub-$100,000 car:

So what do you say? If you could buy ANY new car priced under $100,000, which would you choose? Let us know in the comments below.
