Lexus LF-A Revealed

October 22, 2009

New pictures of the Lexus LF-A have been revealed.  Some are billing the rear wheel drive LF-A as the long over due Supra replacement.

The LF-A will be powered by a 4.8 liter V10 with an estimated 560 ponies and 354 pound-feet of torque.

Nice job Toyota!  However, Toyota needs to lose those silly looking exhaust tips, such as on the Lexus IS-F and of course on this car.

Toyota FT-86 Concept

October 6, 2009

I remember reading about this collaboration between Toyota and Subaru a while ago and almost forgot about it.

Well, here it is, the first look at what Toyota is dubbing the FT-86 Concept! Toyota will be debuting the rear wheel drive “Toyobaru” FT-86 at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show at the end of this month.

Nice job on the exterior! But the interior leaves a lot to be desired. Hopefully they stick with the exterior design of the concept on the production model.

BMW Joins the Matte Paint Trend

October 5, 2009

Never really been a fan of matte paint jobs as it makes the car look unfinished IMHO.  Although I have to admit I have seen a few SUV’s and trucks done in matte and for whatever reason that seems to work. For example, Long Tran of LTBMW’s X5.

Well, BMW is now offering their E92 M3 coupe in Frozen Grey as a limited edition.

Sorry, still not a fan.
