A Lexus LFA owner in Norway has successfully campaigned his local council to remove a speed hump that was too high to drive his car over.

Norwegian website Broom reports Rune Berge Vik first realised he had a problem soon after collecting his 412kW Japanese supercar from an importer in Oslo.

With a ground clearance of just 10.9cm, Vik was unable to navigate the speed hump positioned on the main road providing access to his home without causing damage to the underside of his Lexus LFA.

After explaining his situation to a local council worker in Stavanger, approval was given to have the speed hump removed.

Broom says Vik drives his LFA – the only one of its kind in the region – most days, particularly in the warmer months.

The Lexus LFA was built between 2010 and 2012, with production capped at 500 units. Of those, seven have been registered in Australia, each one costing its owner $700,000 for the privilege.
