The coveted Lexus LFA first debuted on the automotive scene in October 2009 at the 41st biennial Tokyo Motor Show, introduced by Akio Toyota as Lexus’ introduction into the world of high-dollar supercars. Requiring almost a decade of testing and development, the LFA was perfected on the Nurburgring, where it set a lap record for production cars and competed in the 24 Hours of the Nurburgring in 2008, 2009, and 2010. Since then, exclusivity and desirability have left the Lexus LFA fetching prices well past the $1 million mark amongst car collectors willing to pay the premium. The supercar specialists at Blue Chip of Englewood, Colorado, are pleased to present this pristine 2012 Lexus LFA as part of its extensive inventory of rare and collectible exotic cars.
With only 500 examples produced worldwide, this specific LFA (chassis #468) left the Lexus production facility sporting a Whitest White exterior finish. Its immaculate condition proves its worth as one of the best-kept examples, highlighting an ultra-low odometer that reads only a mere 2,325 miles on it. As a supercar designed for speed and agility, the Lexus LFA features an aero-focused body that includes various inlets and curvatures that work with the wind to produce a significant amount of downforce. Like-new multispoke sports wheels and red carbon ceramic brakes only further embody its DNA as a true track weapon.
Inside, the Lexus LFA’s interior exudes simplicity while shying more towards a driver-centric layout. Modest black leather layers the two sports bucket seats, while red seatbelts and contrast stitching add a vibrant touch. Demanding the attention of the driver, the LFA showcases a minimal infotainment display at the center and presents all controls within arm’s reach of the red leather and carbon fiber flat-bottom steering wheel. Without modern amenities that cause distractions, the Lexus LFA prides itself on offering a visceral driving experience for both the driver and the passenger.
The Lexus LFA is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.8L V10 engine, producing an impressive 552 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. This high-revving powertrain, paired with a 6-speed automated sequential gearbox, allows the LFA to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. The exhaust note, tuned through a specialized exhaust system by Yamaha, screams to an impressive 8,800 rpm redline, propelling the supercar to a top speed of 202 mph.
