Essentially, this page is merely a gateway; an excuse to stare at and fondly remember the Lexus LFA. Heck, if we didn’t do this every once in a while we’d be sad.
(We can't think about our LFA drive without getting goosebumps... click HERE to read about it)
However, holstered onto this mule is some actual news. Toyota’s 2019 year-end sales report was announced recently (wait, come back!), and buried in the small print, at the very bottom, was the fact that in 2019… Lexus sold three brand-new LFAs.
Three! In even more amazing news, it represents a jump on 2018, because in 2018 two brand-new LFAs were sold. Two!
We say ‘brand-new’, when of course we mean ‘unsold’, the LFA having been off-sale now for quite a long time. Indeed, it was only built for two years between 2010 and 2012, and only 500 exist.
Which makes it a bit of a unicorn. Rightly so, too, because the LFA remains one of the BEST CARS EVA. A 500bhp 4.8-litre V10 that revved to tinnitus, and looks that’d shame many a supercar today.
To those that bought a new one last year then, well done. We’re not jealous in the slightest.
