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.
