Lexus Dealers Still Have 12 New LFAs In Stock

The Lexus LFA went out of production nearly five years ago but a new report is indicating the company still has a handful of new models in stock.

When Autoblog was compiling its sales report for July, it came across an interesting statistic – Lexus sold an LFA last month. This odd inclusion pushed the publication to reach out to the automaker and confirm it wasn’t a mistake.

The automaker responded by confirming the news and revealing U.S. dealerships still have 12 LFAs in stock. This is pretty incredible as Lexus only built 500 units and 12 models represents a little over two percent of the entire production run.

The news is pretty surprising but the chances of getting your hands on one of these cars are slim. As the publication noted, dealers have held onto these vehicles for years so they’re probably not in a rush to sell them. The dealerships could also be using them as an investment or a display item. As a spokesperson for Lexus International explained, “Some of these cars may never be sold, except perhaps by the dealer’s heirs.”

  • ediotsavant

    I would love to own one of them!

  • Shahul Usman

    Love the sound of the engine/exhaust from an LFA, but… the $450k price was ridiculous then and still is today…a used one at $150k would work, cept they are still double that or more

    I visited an Acura dealer a couple of years ago that still had a candy apple red 1992 Acura Legend Coupe with tan leather interior on the sales room floor and was asking $60,000 for it… it still is there to this day.

        I distinctly remember visiting an Acura dealership with my parents in the mid 1990s. One of the 4dr Acura Legends on the showroom floor had a sticker price of $46K. My mom ended up in a Lexus ES.

    I LOVE this car. The engine sound is second to none. There’s two here in Miami at a Lexus dealer and he wants $279k each. I wish I had the cash to burn….

    One of my alltime favourite.The sheer power and the noise of that V10 is remarkable

    Went to a Lexus dealer yesterday and the same LFA was still sitting there after 5 years. (Bought an RX350 5 years ago.)

  • Wandering_Spirit

    I would buy one any day over Ferraris and Lambos.

  • vantageman1

    i always love the look and sound of this car but its price never seemed to match its performance a case of over engineering for sure
