I didn’t see this one coming. The all new $375,000 2011 Lexus LFA super car is a true wonderment of modern technology and power. The LFA is powered by a 4.8-liter V10 that makes 552 hp and 354 lb-ft torque, it runs 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, revs to 9,000 rpm and has a top speed of 202 mph, all the while looking like it came out of a science fiction novel. The big question on everyone’s mind though was would it actually sell. I mean sure its fast, looks great and has all the bells and whistles as every other super car, but at the end of the day the badge on the hood still says Lexus. Apparently that little badge has not been hindering the orders being placed on the car as a third of them have been coming from the land of some of Lexus’s main competitors – Germany.
From the onset of the LFA it was Lexus’s goal to wow customers by showing them what the car was truly capable of, and they did this at one of the most famous automotive circuits in the world, Germany’s Nurburgring. Lexus entered 2 LFA’s in this years Nurburgring 24-hour endurance race while at the same time treating potential customers to the true full court press. It apparently worked too because buyers put down 100,000 euros a pop on these Japanese bad boys. The lull of the LFA is not only breath taking performance and style but true above and beyond customer service, something that some other super car manufacturers are not known for.
