Production has ceased over two years ago for the Lexus LFA model; the first supercar from Lexus that boosted a V-10 engine with 552 horsepower. There were only 500 of these cars built, which would make car enthusiasts drool with the limited quantity. They were mostly hand made as well. All of these little extras jacked up the price tag to $375,000 per vehicle. As of today, in 2015, there are still some LFA’s available for purchase. Throughout the entire 2014 year only 17 were sold.
Auto Transport Quote Services had the honor of transporting two of these vehicles using our enclosed shipping service and each were a beautiful masterpiece. The aggressive and aerodynamic styling and body of the vehicle was impressive. We did not drive the vehicle, but onto the hauler, so we do not know how it handled, but it sounded really beefy (in a good way, obviously). Seeing the vehicle in person, though, I was wondering why these did not sell out. I spoke with the owner of the vehicle and found out the price tag and then realized why there are so many available after production shut down over 2 years ago. $375,000 for this vehicle is just outright dumb. Going for $175,000 or even $2000,000 max is what it is worth. Look at other supercars like the Tesla P85D, Ford GT, Falcon Delta Wing, and plenty others that are just as good, or even better than the LFA and at a price point of 1/3 the cost.
When an auto maker produces a super high-end vehicle it is not uncommon for them to sit on the dealership floor for many month. Two years though? That is a bit extreme. Lexus will not come down on their price either. They do not want backlash from customers who did purchase their LFA at retail price and have their investment tarnished because Lexus wants to sell off the rest of their stock.
If you are in the market for this vehicle, you’re in luck. There is still 18 in the Lexus database and ready to be sold. If 2014 is any indication, you have about a year before they are gone.
