With a manual in a car like this, six.
A car like this? You mean a generic base hatchback?

Also, I hope that premium sound system actually does something because the speakers in my friends MY2016 Impreza are trash.

Drove a red one of these last night. My god it is mind blowing how good it is. Went straight to the configurator to see what color I'd get. Too hard to choose, but I'd go with one of the following. Surprisingly none are brightly colored









I think the last one is my favorite.

Is it expensive? Fuck yes. But Canadians who can afford this are getting a screaming deal versus the Americans on this one. Amazing job, Lexus.

$120k? For an ugly as sin Lexus? I'm assuming CAD? For that much I'd rather have a $90k GT350R (stripes + electronics package) AND a $29k Fiesta ST (paint + wheels).

Infact, the exact two cars I would have come to a total of $119,326. $9.50 less than that purple predator.

Yes, CAD, and if you compare that to the USD price you'll see what I'm on about it being a relatively screaming deal (that was with all taxes included). Also, in Canada, it would cost less than market value for a GT350R (all of which are going for 125k+).

But... you think the LC500 is... ugly?

The Lexus sedans and SUVs look ghastly, but i have to admit the LC kinda works.

After the LC Lexus isn't the Japanese Mercedes anymore. The LC is the Japanese Aston Martin. Pictures just don't do justice to it's proportions, in real life it's simply gorgeous.

Saw one in person at the Detroit Auto show, still think its ugly inside and out.

Also the 720S configurator is up. I also this think car is ugly (namely the headlights/scoops - it looks like they forgot to finish building the damn thing), but these premium brands usually have awesome configurators so I'm not going to pass an option to play with it.

The color selection sucked. Their closest was this shade of.... greenish.... yellowish.....



Even I think its terrible. Was really hoping for a Mantis (available on pretty much every other McLaren) or Napier (675LT)

There is a PT Cruiser that runs around here that is that God awful yellowish green color. Never can get a pic of it. It hurts my eyes.

Off-topic - does anyone else think that the current Lexus tagline "Experience Amazing" is terrible?
