Interest on Lexus LFA exceeded Production Numbers


Lexus LFA is a two-seat Japanese exotic sports coupe with a price tag of USD375,000. Yes, I got to post this article as it really blows my mind, particularly - the price tag and the demand.

As refresh, Lexus LFA is more expensive than a Ferrari F430 and a little expensive than a Lamborghini MurciƩlago LP640. Lexus which is a luxury brand of Toyota claimed that they isn't making profit on LFA as the cost of the car is pretty high on the materials as well as 9 Years R&D.

Surprisingly, the demand of Lexus LFA exceeds its production target of 500 vehicles. For now, Lexus said it will have to hand pick who it sells each individual model to. After the registration process is completed, Lexus will decide on how to allocate the 500 units to the 56 countries where the LFA will be sold. 150 have been allocated to the United States.

Lexus LFA comes from a 4.8L V10 engine that makes 552-hp with a maximum torque of 354 lb-ft. Mated to a 6-speed Automated Sequential Gearbox, the LFA goes from 0-100 km/h time of just 3.7 sec with a top speed of 326 km/h. This super car is feature with a carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) body.
