An Australian Lexus LFA owner has become the first in the world to give his the all-chrome treatment.
On display at the Meguiar's MotorEx enthusiasts car show in Sydney at the 2000 Olympics venue, LFA number 304 out of 500 will be showing off its chrome wares among a wide range of modified and highly customized and collectable vehicles.
However, all is not quite as it seems; the car hasn't actually been sprayed or coated in real chrome. Instead, Exotic Graphix has applied a removable chrome adhesive to the car's carbon fiber panels. Hidden beneath the $10,000 chrome colored adhesive is a bright orange original Lexus finish.
The owner is a 36-year old from the north eastern Australian state of Queensland, who is apparently in the retail business. Ironically, despite his ostentatious tastes, prefers to remain anonymous. How he is able to achieve that in an all-chrome Lexus LFA with custom "LFUKNA" plates remains a mystery to us.
Although the LFA is only two months old, "JP" tells Drive that it has already traveled over 2,500 miles. "Long drives aren't boring anymore, I love it," he says.
And what's not to love? The LFA features a 4.8-liter V10 developing 552 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque that can propel a car that is 65 percent carbon fiber and 35 percent aluminum from 0-60mph in around 3.7 seconds.
