Lexus LFA engineer Chiharu Tamura drives a Subaru 360

Chiharu Tamura may be a hero to many for his work as Deputy Chief Engineer of the Lexus LFA. To us, it’s because he drives a 1968 Subaru 360. Not even 27 of these 20PS kei jidosha would equal a single LFA’s output, but apparently a man who works on a 553-horsepower supercar needs only an air-cooled two-stroke twin to get around. Who says a Toyota-Subaru union can’t yield great results?

    I’ve met this guy a few times through my work! Without a doubt one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met at Toyota. He even gave my better half a ride in one of the pre-production LFAs!
