The Prius is basically the poster child for beige motoring and smug pseudo-environmentalism. Would you be caught dead in one for ToMoCo's most amazing creation?
Welcome to Morning Would, where we present you with some of the most desirable, controversial cars ever built and ask what you would do to drive one.
Toyota is a cruel lover. It fills our roads with plastic Rav4s and soulless Corollas, but then goes out and produces some of the most impressive cars on the planet. The Land Cruiser and the 2000 GT. You don't like the new shade of beige for the updated Camry? Here's an FR-S! And then it gives us the wailing-V10 technological tour-de-force otherwise known as the Lexus LFA.
You get the fantastic LFA to do with as you please on the weekends. Go for a leisurely Sunday drive, hoon it in a parking lot, head to the track-it's yours and it's up to you. This car is basically the sum of Toyota's decades of engineering knowledge, and it must be thrilling. And just look at it. This is the sex-bot to the GT-R's robot. But for the aural and visceral pleasure of the engine-that-revs-so-fast-an-analog-tachometer-can't-keep-pace, you have to drive a Toyota Prius Monday through Friday. "Balance," "moderation," you know the drill.
Can you deal with the self-satisfied image and overwhelming beigeness of a Prius on the weekdays for the LFA every weekend? Tell us what you think in the comments.
