The Lexus LFA in action

The Lexus LFA is almost sold out

If you have been taking your time, saving your pennies to buy a new Lexus LFA, don’t delay much longer as the Japanese supercar is reportedly almost completely sold out in markets around the world.

The $375,000 Lexus LFA supercar debuted in 2010 as a 2011 model with Toyota Motor Co expecting to sell a total of 500 Lexus supercars around the world – and less than 200 in the United States. According to The Detroit Bureau, there are less than 10 LFAs left so if you have that kind of cash lying around and you want to get your hands on this incredible piece of Japanese motoring technology – you had better start making calls right now. The vast majority of the Lexus LFA supercars sold in the US over the past two years were issued in California or Florida with only 25 LFAs sold in the Midwest regions of the US.

The LFA is powered by a 4.8L V10 engine that sends 552 horsepower to the rear wheels via an advanced automatic transmission that puts power to the wheels efficiently and offers lightning quick shifts. This drivetrain allows the lightweight Japanese supercar to rocket from a dead stop to 60 miles per hour in just 3.6 seconds on the way to hitting an incredible top speed of 202 miles per hour. With numbers like that – it becomes hard to dispute the fact that the LFA deserves to be compared alongside the likes of the best from Italy.
