The coveted Lexus LFA. Yes I know you’re excited just hearing those words. Not to sound too cliche (ha the irony of that statement) the LFA in two words – Classy Sassy. Just this week alone I must have heard ten different people raving over this mouth-watering supercar coupe.
While buzz of this powerhouse has been around since the early 2000’s, Lexus never really produced anything until 2010. “A circuit-tuned variant debuted in 2012 with a base price of US$445,000, making it one of the most expensive Japanese road cars ever built. Production ended in December 2012 with 500 vehicles completed, the final version being a Nürburgring Package model.”
Our client needed to relocate this prized possession from Pheoniz, AR to Reno, NV. We obviously opted for a well protected hard-sided covered trailer for this transport. I mean it’s not even a question!
Just to put into perspective the perfection of this vehicle, US News lists the #2 con (price was #1) on this car as “minimal cargo space”. Well it’s a good thing I don’t plan on taking this camping, c’mon guys it’s a Japanese race-car, what did you expect? The only space an LFA-owner needs is a back-seat to store all the “oohs” and “aahs” coming their way.
A few months ago we were very excited to ship one of the batmobiles AKA The Keaton-Mobile. Well things got even better this week when we transported the original (yes the actual one) batmobile.
Early summer of last year this comic book lovers dream was put on the auction block at Barret Jackson. The lucky winner, Arizona businessman Rick Champagne told the media he is planning on displaying the car in his living room. Now that’s what we call a conversation piece. Here’s a crazy conversation, the car went for $4.6 million, 50 years ago George Barris paid a $1 for the very same car (well not exactly but sounds good), we’ll just blame inflation. For the full story check out this pretty sweet site completely dedicated to the 1966 TV Batmobile.
Fast forward to 2014 and United Routes (hey, that’s us) was hired to transport the car from Arizona to a Texas auto show. Thanks Batman for giving us this opportunity, now please go save the world.
Aesthetically, I’m already in love with this car but if that’s not enough for you here’s some more details. Taking inspiration from the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe & Racecar Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive joined forces to develop this modern piece of art.

Did you know all Vipers have a V10 engine along with manual transmission? V10! I want one! After a (smart, if i may add) new purchase we were able to provide George with an enclosed car transport from Arizona to Colorado. Speaking of Colorado, ever heard of the High Plains Raceway? It’s an amazing road racing facility, I sure hope George swings his gorgeous 2001 Dodge Viper over there.
