Just spotted this great blog called Kaizen Factor pretty much dedicated to Lexus, Toyota and Scion stuff. Created by Flipside 909, his latest posts are all about the first Lexus LFA to arrive in the USA. He’s managed to get himself in behind the scenes with a camera and was there when the very first batch of three LFA’s were unboxed.
Unlike normal Lexus or Toyota products, they’re not shipped traditionally, roll-on, roll-off. Instead, each one sits in it’s own container, bolted down to a cradle that prevents any movement or damage. Take a look at his blog for a full sequence of LFA’s being ‘de-vanned’. There are loads of videos out there of people getting all excited about opening the box when the iPad first hit, but these shots are really work getting exceted over. Have to say, if I was a lucky LFA buyer, I’d want to be there when they opened the container, how cool would that be?
