There are Still More Out There
The Lexus LFA was one of the coolest supercars, but the company still has some new ones to sell despite the fact that the production of the vehicle ended in 2012. According to Carscoops, the automaker managed to sell three of these cars in 2019. These cars were new.
In 2018, Lexus managed to sell two of the LFAs that were brand spanking new. In 2017, three of the cars sold. In 2017, it was determined that there were 12 LFAs out there for grabs. Carscoops says there are now just four remaining.
The LFA features a naturally-aspirated 4.8-liter V10 engine. That engine makes 552 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. That may seem rather modest in the age of 1,000 hp hypercars, but the LFA is more of an analog machine than many of the modern vehicles and is regarded by many as one of the best supercars of the last decade.
The reason the car didn’t sell well was its super-high price tag of $450,000 as new. It’s unclear if dealers are putting a mark-up on the models still out there. Our guess is that some of them are. Half a million or more for a LFA is a lot of money, but with only 500 produced, it’s not a huge surprise that they’re so highly sought after by some.
