Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Edition Signed by Toyota CEO Is for Sale, It's Pricy

In the market for a unique car and money is not a problem? Well, we might have something that fits the bill.

The first Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Edition is for sale, and it has barely been used. The dealer in charge of the sale says it is part of the limited series of 50 units.

This might justify a part of the price, while the set of signatures from Akio Toyoda should do the rest. In case the name does not sound familiar to you, Mr. Toyoda is the CEO of Toyota Motor Company, the corporation that developed and built the Lexus LF-A.

Here comes the painful part: the seller wants €6,430,000 (approx. $7,060,000) for this exclusive Lexus LF-A. We must note that the first and the last car of a limited edition are worth more than regular examples, but this one is neither of those.

Therefore, we cannot help but notice that the price for this model is exaggerated. After all, it is not a classic Ferrari signed by Mr. Enzo, and it was over ten times (we are generous here) cheaper when it was new.

Sure, one might argue that the vehicle has low mileage, with just 680 kilometers (422 miles) on the clock. We still consider that this does not justify its asking price. It is even cheaper to buy a new Bugatti Chiron and a Koenigsegg Regera than to acquire this Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Edition one of 50.

However, as the exotic car market has shown time and time again, customers are willing to pay exorbitant sums of money for rare vehicles. It is unclear whether each of the 50 LF-A Nurburgring Edition models has been signed by Toyota’s CEO, but even the signature of the company’s chief executive could not raise the asking price so high on this car.

On the other hand, if this vehicle were a Porsche signed by Mr. Ferdinand Porsche, things would have looked different.

We must note that the seller on Mobile did not bother to hire a photographer to take proper photos of this car. When selling such an expensive vehicle, decent pictures will surely help.

How much would you pay for a limited edition Lexus LF-A that has the signature of Toyota’s CEO?
