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

There are sound tubes that feed the roar of the engine's induction directly into the cockpit. And there's a woman in the boot who can find you the nearest Japanese/Euro fusion restaurant. I love the LFA a lot. So much, that I recently described it as the best car I've ever driven.
Naturally, this caused both Hammond and May to scoff very loudly. Mainly because - as they kept pointing out - it costs £359,590. That's nearly five times more than a Nissan GT-R which, if anything, is even more technical. It's way more, too, than a Ferrari 458 or a Merc SLS. It is, they argued, a stupid price.
