Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction Preview: 2012 Lexus LFA

The 2012 Lexus LFA maintains the balance of high performance with the civility of a luxury car. Its performance is derived from a 4.8-liter V10 that produces a factory-rated 552hp and 354 ft-lb of torque paired with a six-speed automated sequential manual gearbox (ASG) featuring steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The performance numbers are upper echelon for the time, with a 0-to-60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph. Since this is a Lexus, the LFA’s amenities, function and style are, of course, lavish. The Lexus LFA is a truly unique supercar, with one available for sale with no reserve at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car Auction.

“The Lexus LFA was limited to just 500 examples for the world; only 156 were produced for the U.S. market,” the auction listing states. “In its configuration of Steel Gray with an orange interior, this is a one of one, according to the LFA Registry. That hue required an additional charge of $3,000.

“The interior orange was selected new from the selling dealer, Sewell Lexus of Dallas, TX. The additional cost to select orange front seats was $2,500, which did not include the additional $1,000 for the stitching. To accent the interior, the steering grip was also selected in orange for an additional $1,500.”
