While Coach Cal cruises around Lexington in his Vespa, Rick Pitino is driving a new $450,000 white Lexus LFA sports car in Louisville.

That thing looks like it could make some quick trips to Cincinnati.

    Tattoo. Extramarital affairs. Compensation car.
    Midlife crisis is in full effect.

    Well he is part owner of the Lexus dealership in Lexington so at least he bought from himself, kinda.

    …probably runs, and the peters out after 15 seconds.

    It’s amazing what you can afford when you aren’t paying for abortions and hush money to a mistress!

    At least its white so it won’t show his stain….

    Not shocking, considering him and Mashburn own Lexus of Lexington. Still, that’s a badass car.

    I can’t fault him on this. The LFA is an epically badass car.

    450k for a souped up Toyota? On the bright side, that’s 150 less abortions he can afford.

    He still needs to grow up – he is 60 ,maybe Bobby Petrino will get to go for a ride out cougar hunting

    Teddy Bridgewater bought it for him.

    9 Pitino, Mashburn, and a holding company. Ricky and Jamal own about 25% each and a holding company owns the rest, except a small percentage is also owned by certain employees.

    It matches that killer white suit.

    The same car discussed on KSR months ago. Proof Rick is a KSR Fan.

    It has dealer tags. It’s the Lexus dealer in lexington’s car, probably brought into inventory for him to drive a bit then sell to somebody who will pay “up” for having Pitino’s ride. He and Mashburn and Ricks agent, the other Rick, have been in the car biz a long long time.

    I’m sure it’s a nice car but for that price i’d rather have a Lambo.

    Cut the crap, Kids. That is one sweet ride.

    LFAs are neat little cars…but in the end it’s an expensive Toyota and I wouldn’t own or drive a Toyota.

    C’mon people. That’s not “his” car. He simply drove it around for an afternoon. Be didn’t buy it. It usually sits in Lexington’s Lexus showroom. He couldn’t pull out, err, off driving a car like that.

    Hope it ends up in the Ohio River before dark.

    Rick,

    After you drive my car for the day, I expect the best 16 seconds of my life. You can bring Joanne and we will make it a threesome.

    If I shell out that kinda cash it wouldn’t be for a Lexus.

    All you blue smurfs can eat yer hearts out! I’m going to be up to my elbows in skanks with this thing, cruising around da’Ville for 15 seconds or so. I think I’m going to get a picture of the Lexus logo tattooed on my other shoulder. I sure hope the seats recline all the way down – no back seat!

    Don’t let Ryan Lemond near this vehicle. He’s already shown what he can do to a car with a six-digit price tag.

    21) Why exactly would you prefer a lamborghini? Just curious. Most people say that is the supercar or hypercar they would own but few can explain why. Clearly many of the people on this site (but thats expect on a non car related site) dont know what the LFA really is, what its capable of or the process of making a car such as this. Yes the car is crazy expensive… And Lexus takes a loss on every one. They cost even more to make than they sell for it was made only to be an engineering masterpiece

    0-60 in 3.6seconds is not worth $450k. The Nissan GTR, Porsche 911 Turbo and Corvette ZR1 are all faster and you could own all three for less than the LFA.

    I saw him on New Circle Road today on my drive home. I assume it was him since I doubt we have too many white LFAs in the state.

    I can’t think of a better way to enjoy a supercar than by driving it at 35 mph from stoplight to stoplight on New Circle.

    Hard to rape women in that car.

    Not sure it’s only his…that car is at Malone’s in Lansdowne at times…last time it was a kid and his dad…the kid looked like he’d just picked up his license…scary.

    #40 I agree to an extent but you can always judge straightline 0-60mph times as the only thing. Yes the Nissan GT-R is faster than a Ferrari 458 Italia, but on the track, the Ferrari beats it. But the LFA did underperform relative to some of the other cars for less.

    And the thought that it is currently $450K is most likely false. It has been out a bit although with limited production (no longer in production) and I don’t think it was heavily sought after. So I’d argue probably $300K at this time.

    Either way, give me the Ferrari and keep the Japanese cars.

    I’m aware what that car is capable of. It’s a nice car, but 450k for a Lexus is insane. There are WAY better cars for 450k than a fn Lexus. There are actually way better cars for less than 450k.
