Lexus LF-A already sold out in Japan

The Lexus LF-A has already established itself as one of the fastest machines on the planet, but judging from the warm reception the LF-A has received in its native land, the V10 powered Japanese super car appears to be just as fast at selling out. Reports out of the island nation claim that Lexus ’ new super car is becoming such a must-have item that all 165 units that were allotted to the land of the rising sun have already been tagged, and apparently much faster than anyone expected.

Unlike the agreement on this side of the globe, Lexus won’t be selling the LF-A in North America but rather leasing them to prospective customers, the Japanese are fair game like sushi on a Saturday night. This means that if you find yourself in Tokyo with enough dough in tow, you can buy one of the 500 LF-A’s outright. As long as you know that they are being priced at 37.5 million Yen each, a number that translates to roughly $410,000. So now that 165 of the LF-As have been gobbled up, it remains to be seen as to just how fast the remaining 335 cars will be snatched up. It suffices to say that it looks like Lexus’ new super car will be going just as fast in the dealership as on the track.

Japanese have a real passion in designing the car is the proof they have common art sense.

Of course it’s going to be sold out. Look at this baby. Isn’t she very attractive. Even you put that model on other countries I’m sure the crowd will get wild just to have that car.

It’s not shocking at all that Japanese people will consider buying that luxurious car that as we all know, it’s a Japanese brand. That’s why Japan really have strong economy just because people consider buying their own products than the foreign products to avoid bankruptcy on some companies.

Well, the sales spoke for the whole car. Being one of the world’s machines, people will definitely run after it. Adding to that is its elegant look. No one in this world will resist the Lexus LF-A, event the makes of other brands.

I completely agree with you Uncia. While the LF-A is a thing of beauty, they need an automobile more marketable, while not sacrificing much power.

They should offer a less expensive vehicle with a de-tuned version of this V10 engine to compete with the GT-R. Not only would that satisfy those who want an affordable supercar, but it would be an easy way for Toyota to actually make some profit off of this engine they spent so much time and money developing.

Of course many car enthusiast want to get their hand on this baby..even me, if only i have that kind of money to buy one of this i wont hold back to own one.

I didn’t know that there were some who are expecting that something this great of a car would stay long in the market. If I had the resources, I would buy immediately too!

Not to mention that the Lexus LF-A has everything. The performance doesn’t only look that great but it looks good too! A car that can fulfill all our senses.

There’s no competition with this car so it’s not really a surprise that it immediately evaporated from the market the moment it was released. I wish I have funds to buy this one.

Well a maximum output of 560 HP at 9,000 RPM is very hard to resist. Even their own people can’t help it. I just wish they would still consider on exporting these cars to other countries. In Europe or in North America perhaps? There is also a growing clamor for supercars in Asia.

I want one. How much is the two-year lease option?
