You Can Still Get A Practically New Lexus LFA With Just 120 Miles

The LFA was the pinnacle of the Lexus brand, a marvelous piece of engineering that stayed in production for three short years, between 2010 and 2012.

During this time, only 500 units of the supercar were produced at Motomachi, Toyota City, Japan, all of them benefiting from the same radical styling and front-mounted naturally aspirated 4.8-liter V10 engine.

The V10 was married to a six-speed single-clutch sequential gearbox, which channeled 552hp (560PS / 412kW) and 354lb-ft (480Nm) of torque to the rear wheels. Top speed stands at around 202mph (325km/h) and the 0-62mph (0-100km/h) sprint takes just 3.7 seconds.

Thanks to its superb handling, unique exterior design and limited production run, the LFA’s value has only gone up, and it’s not uncommon to see examples listed for well over $500,000.

The supercar pictured below, however, is expected to find a new home for some $375,000-$450,000 (€320,240-€384,288) when it hits the auction block at RMSothebys Monterey event on August 25.

Serial number 479 was manufactured in 2012, and it’s one of approximately 190 examples delivered new to the USA. But despite blowing six candles off its birthday cake, it has barely been driven ans shows only 120 miles (193 kilometers) on the clock.

Finished in ‘Whitest White’, it has a black interior with red accents and is accompanied by the original owner’s manual and luggage set.

    I’d expected it to be much more expensive, to be honest. I’m not sure whether I’d have this over a new supercar (the 720S and the 812 are damn good), but I’d definitely think about it. It is rare, exotic, stunning and, well, the noise of that V10 alone is worth the ticket. Plus, it’s low mileage and in the right colour. Definitely a collectible and a future classic.

    • Well collector’s car market are unpredictable, but for the first 5-10 years or so, expect your car value to go down, but yeah LFA is still a bit understated in the market.

    Worth it!

  • enthusia

    its times like these where i wish i would’ve played the lottery. if i had the money i would scoop this up in a heartbeat.

  • Dude

    Never before have I so lamented my lack of money 😭😭😭

  • Six_Tymes

    so lucky whoever the new owner will be.

  • TheBelltower

    Still an ugly underperformer.

  • Less than 500 worldwide, a decade of development, roaring V10 and dynamic driving. Buy now before the price gone up!

    A baroque turd.

    I was never impressed with this car. It was over priced and under performed. It should have been a $175k car, not $375k. It truly was in the same league with the R8 V10, Porsche 911 Turbo S and Nissan GT-R.

    • Vassilis

      True but the engine was a masterpiece.

      • nastinupe

        For a V10 engine it seemed a little weak to me. Only 575 hp. Sure it sounded amazing but it was not a very strong engine..

        • Vassilis

          Less than that to be fair but looking at the hp/litre ratio it was still pretty good at 117.

          • nastinupe

            Not bad but the $32,450 Honda S2000 had 120 Hp/ liter back in 2000 (naturally aspirated)

          • Vassilis

            That says more about the S2000’s engine rather than anything else though.

          • nastinupe

            True but I’m just saying that $375k was simply over priced. I know that they had some amazing carbon fiber spindle machine made specifically for this vehicle, but still.

          • Vassilis

            Compared to other cars in the segment, for sure but considering how much development potentially cost maybe it wasn’t. It was just a very expensive car to develop.

  • Does a motor vehicle that goes for long periods without being run stay in good condition? I guess you can start the engine and warm it up without actually moving it. The owner of an old Jag across the road to me does exactly that — usually very early on Sunday mornings 🙁 The close up picture of the LFA badge shows what is either dirt or corrosion, and it looks like the latter to me. What are the panels made of? I doubt that a single person reading this wouldn’t love the chance to drive this vehicle, and that makes it a crying shame that it’s role in life has been as an investment. I sincerely hop that its new owner has the pleasure of driving it, and doing so regularly.

  • Craig

    No thanks. I could buy a lot of super great cars for half a million dollars. [Or $375,000 for that matter]

  • Ary Wisesa

    I can’t afford the real one. But I’m happy enough to own the Autoart Lexus LFA 1:18 model (regular, and Nurbugring version). It looks so good in white, especially the rear end. Both occupy the top shelf of my collection.
