Turns out this guy has been the test driver of, and often the driving force to build, some of Toyota's best cars:

http://www.autoblog.com/2010/06/23/seat-time-with-hiromu-naruse/

FTFA: In addition to the racecars and the iconic 2000GT, Naruse-san had a hand in every revolutionary product to come out of Toyota. You name it, he was working on it. The 1965 Sports 800. His. The 1600GT. Another one. Every iteration of the Celica. The AE86. The first and third generation MR2s. The Supra. The Altezza [1st gen. Lexus IS-series]. And yes, even the second-generation Prius.

RIP, Naruse-san. :saluteTOme:

I enjoy the fact that a billboard for the LFA went up in Boston this week, when they were reported sold out like 2 weeks ago

Pretty sure that the billboard wasn't intended to drive showroom traffic to the LFA....

It's a halo car.

I suppose thats what happens when you put a sticky gas pedal into a 500+ hp car.

Yeah.... worst post of the year award. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the gas pedal... so tasteless.
