A Lexus driver (who just bought the car from Longo Lexus about a month ago) was coming off the freeway right on his way to the service department and, according to his statement, hit the throttle instead of the brake as he started to turn into the gate. A Longo Lexus employee estimated that he was going at least 85mph when he hit the curb and, in turn, part of a guard rail and in some freaky way got the GS430 airborne!

All told Longo Lexus had 6 vehicles that were total losses and another 12 that will require various levels of repair. total damage is estimated at about 200k, not including the drivers car.

The biggest miracle, of course is that this happened at 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon, where no one was seriously injured or killed.

Holy Sh$t, i was just there thurs night with my friend picking up his new is300 5sp. They have this bet going on that longo lexus couldnt sell 600 cars in a month. My friend bought #600 and there were cameras all over and he got a real fat deal. BTW his is300 is 1 of 12 on the west coast with manual and navigation. The IS with navigations come with limited slip differential.

sorry, couldn't resist

not to be funny,but from those pics looks like this guy is trying for the rumored new Knight Rider to be a Lexus instead of an Acura or Firebird...you know, that way Michael, Devon and Bonnie can all travel in luxury and style (damn hard seats in the firebird).

Hope everyone is ok

Glad no one got hurt........Was that dude intoxicated or something? Even if he did hit the gas, it would take a few seconds for it to get to 85mph.

Anyway,
Somebody find out which junkyard those cars are going to. I want the HID's outta one of 'em!

:D

Depending if he was comming off the west exit, it's very possible. It's a short distance between the offramp and the enterance. It's like about 2-3 football fields between the begining of the ramp and the enterance..... that and nobody really slows down on that ramp anyway cuz it's so long.
