Prepare those checkbooks, ladies and gentlemen

The Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition represented the last of the LFAs that Lexus developed at the start of the decade. Only 50 Nurburgring Editions were made, and all 50 were scooped up in short order. The special edition’s limited status makes it hard to find one being put up for sale, let alone in an auction setting. It’s not impossible, though, because one of the 50 LFA Nurburgring Editions will return to the spotlight when it’s auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson event in Palm Beach, Florida this coming April.

The LFA went on to become one of the most impressive supercars in the early part of the decade, and the 50 Nurburgring Edition models served as the pinnacle of what the supercar could become

I remember when Lexus debuted the LFA Nurburgring Edition at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. It was a crowning achievement for a company that had never built a car that legitimately qualified as a supercar. The LFA went on to become one of the most impressive supercars in the early part of the decade, and the 50 Nurburgring Edition models served as the pinnacle of what the supercar could become. At one point, it was even the fastest production car around the race track from which it got its name.

This particular LFA Nurburgring Edition is one of the few of its kind to hit the secondary market. It still packs a menacing punch, thanks in large part to a 4.8-liter V-10 engine that produces 562 horsepower. It also still has a lot of its original parts, including the carbon fiber components, the large front spoiler, and the fixed rear wing. It also features a sport-tuned suspension unit and a special set of multi-spoke wheels with tires that are sticky enough to make for ideal racing and drifting conditions.

This model only has 1,600 miles under its belt and has a clean CarFax history

More importantly, this model has rarely been used by its current owner. It only has 1,600 miles under its belt and has a clean CarFax history. That means that it hasn’t been involved in any track-day debauchery, making it as clean as a whistle. Even the car’s reported issues involving the faulty Takata airbag inflator has been addressed and fixed to the standards of Lexus.

It’s hard to imagine how much money this Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition can fetch, but all signs point to it being a healthy sum. Thankfully for potential buyers, there’s no reserve price on the car so whatever the highest bid is when it’s auction time, regardless of how low it is, is how much it’s going to sell for.
