Lexus cars are usually pretty down to earth. The Japanese automaker hopes to be able to take on BMW with smaller hybrid engines, more room for your golf clubs and improved fit and finish. That all sounds rather boring, doesn’t it!
But there’s a Lexus that’s not there to bore you to death. There’s no way you can consider it a BMW or Mercedes rival, and it’s not powered by a hybrid engine. Yes, it’s the famous LFA supercar from Japan.
When we heard the price of this mid-engined supercar, we thought that nobody would buy it, but they have. In fact it’s been such a success that it’s almost sold out.
Lexus US vice president of sales told The Detroit Bureau
that LAF "supply is down to single digits." This means that production of the 500 models will end this year, and Lexus will most likely shift to making that much again of the LFA Roadster next.
