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.
