We already had a pretty good guess as to how much the new Lexus LFA supercar would cost, but the automaker officially announced pricing for its halo car. Limited to 500 units worldwide, LFAs destined for the United States will carry a $375,000 price tag, excluding delivery charges and gas guzzler tax.
Every LFA will be hand-built to conform to its customer’s taste, but there are three basic content configurations. The first configuration includes either leather or Alcantara seating, while the second configuration adds navigation and a Mark Levinson sound system. A third configuration includes all the above, but also adds Lexus’ Enform telematics system. Oddly enough, all three cost the exact same, so we’re a little puzzled why most buyers wouldn’t just spring for the second or third package.
The color palate, however, will be slightly more flexible. Customers will be able to choose from 30 exterior paint choices, 12 interior color options, and six different paint hues for the brake calipers.
Before you pack your duffel bag with cash and head to a local dealer to order your car, note that Lexus is hand picking each and every customer, allowing it to put the LFA in the hands of those who will properly showcase the brand. Additionally, LFAs will only be available to customers in a two-year lease program with the intent to purchase the car outright at the end of the agreement.
Production of the car is expected to begin this December, and should begin to arrive in customers’ hands in early 2011.
