Clarkson in the Lexus LFA
"Many things are wrong with it, but it's still the best car I've ever driven..."

Eventually, though, I made it to the pub where I had what had become supper, and I gave the LFA a bit of thought...
With the possible exceptions of a V8 Ariel Atom or a Caterham R500, I cannot think of any car which makes going to the pub on a crisp winter's day such a chore. For Willow Springs? Yes. For that road which twists up into the hills outside Palm Springs? Yes again. But for going from Chipping Norton to The Kingham Plough for some snails and mushrooms on toast? No. You'd be better off jogging. However, I will not change my mind about this car. I still believe it's the best I've ever driven.
