Royal Car Wash – Lexus LFA and Lamborghini Murcielago

LFA_MurcieThere are some very special cars hiding in Adelaide, and two of them were spotted in the city at the opening of Royal Car Wash this morning.

LFA_Murcie (1)The Lamborghini Murcielago needs no introduction. An old school hairy chested supercar, the venerable Murcie gets by on the drama of its scissor doors and the brute force of its six-and-a-half litre V12.

LFA_Murcie (4)With a limited production run of just 500, the Lexus LFA is one of the rarest supercars as well as one of the most technologically advanced. The shrill of its naturally aspirated 4.8 litre V10 is spine tingling, and the complexity and quality of its carbon-fibre construction is awe inspiring. This LFA is not a garage queen and sees regular use on the streets and hills of Adelaide, even on rainy mornings such as today. Supercars are good, but supercars that get used are even better.
