Lexus LFA Already Sold Out
This means the Lexus LFA managed to bring the company more than $187 million. Though further details are yet to be released, AutoNews says that a third of the orders from Europe were placed in Germany.
“The future LFA owners said they were looking for a different car that exudes performance and prestige without being flashy or overwrought. Europeans also appreciate the doting customer service offered by Lexus, a refreshing contrast to the haughty elitism of rival brands,” the aforementioned source says.
The supercar is powered by a 4.8l V8 engine, developing 553 hp at 8,700 rpm and 480 Nm of torque at 6,800 rpm, 90 percent of which is available from 3,700 rpm. The engine is paired with a six-speed automated sequential gearbox, featuring four driving modes and a seven-stage shift-speed selector, allowing for 0.2 second upshift speeds.
The powerplant enables the LFA from a standstill to 100 km/h in a claimed 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
As customers are not able to simply buy the LFA, just lease it, each of them has to pay a monthly lease of $12,398.44 for 24 months. At the end of the lease, each customer will be able to pay an additional $93,750 and buy their LFA.
