Last we checked, there were fewer than 90 Lexus LFA models in the United States. So imagine our surprise to find not one, not two, but four of the automaker's carbon-fiber exotics parked under the lights in the Lexus booth at the Chicago Auto Show.

Normally, when four of the same models occupy the same stage it's hardly news. However, this quartet of Lexii represents nearly five percent of all LFA models on our shore. Five percent. To put that in perspective, if five percent of Toyota Camry models sold last year were parked in the Toyota booth there would be about 15,000 sedans crammed onto the carpet.

Unexpected appearances aside, the 40-cylinder assembly (with a retail value of more than $1.5 million) gave us the perfect opportunity to see the LFA in red, black and yellow - with an assortment of factory wheels and finishes. And before you make a crack about the LFA not selling, understand these are all customer cars. In fact, one even has an EZPass still in its window. Check out our extensive gallery and let us know which is your next... um, lottery car.

        Shut up dude. You have probably never even seen an LFA in person. To see one is rare enough, let alone 4. Stop insulting other people with your repugnant remarks.

      For the price of the LFA, I can get a basic Porsche 911 as a daily driver, a Ducati for the special hot summer nights and a Mercedes GL350CDi for road trips. Wait a minute, those are exactly what I want in my lottery wins.............

        The rich man that buys the LFA doesn't think about what other things he "could" get with the money.

      Aren't Americans fedup with the 2nd rate 'made-in-china' everything in their houses already. This looks like made-in-china crap (atleast the looks). Why can't these s***A*** american loosers migrate to Japan and see what life they can live there. Have some pride you suckers. Come on admit it Lexus, Infinity and Acura are walmats (sorry dollar stores) luxuary brands. Nothing wrong with walmat or $stores - but they are for those unfortunate people that cant afford too much of life. Can't image how rich 'suckers' could buy crap like this. If Japan or any asian brand must sell cars in the US, they will have to manufacture every single car in the US. Haven't american's lost hundreds of jobs to the asians readly. How insensitive could you suckers be that you don't care for those who lost their jobs. Too much foreign influence is killing america and the rest of the world is living off our loss. Hope the idots out there can get the message and protect this country or leave this country and live in Korea - if life is so great there.

        you seem to think that chinese and japanese are the same thing. They arent. If americans want to compete with japanese brands, then americans should make better cars.

      A car that is too expensive, too slow and too heavy has the 5th fastest laptime on the Nurburgring from all the production cars ever tested. Just imagine if those Lexus engineers actually listened to these expert Auto Blog commentators and made it light and fast , it would probably time travel.

      I guess Toyota is going to play that LFA card as long as possible. The LFA is nothing more than a cool engineering exercise; and is too heavy given it's all carbon construction, to slow given it's ulta-exotic motor, and too expensive for it's segment. To answer Autoblog what my "lottery car" would be... I'd have to say an McLaren MP4-12C HS. Followed by a bunch of not-so-expensive cars, Even if I had all the money in the world, and could buy as many cars as I wanted, I wouldn't pick up an LFA, it would just take up valuable garage space.

      I am glad that Lexus made a car that pushed the limits of design and performance but I find the LFA to be horribly ugly. I've seen it in person and I respect it for what it is but just isn't classically pretty or even remotely good looking. The performance limits of this car will almost never be realized on the open road so why not have something fast and pretty?
