“I love my car because … it has all the luxury of a Lexus and is a Super Sports Coupe with its 467 horsepower, 5-liter, naturally aspirated V-8. I have been watching this car from its development to production. The color — Molten Pearl (orange) — is a color I’ve loved since my 1969 Hugger Orange Camaro I had in the early ’70s. I have put many Japanese-only factory RC F parts on it to personalize it. I’ve owned it since January, and every time I drive it, I get thumbs-up from people. It makes me feel like a teenager again. [It is] a retirement and 60th-birthday gift to myself.”
