Short answer is, Lexus has officially revealed in US it will cost $350,000 and around $380,000 in Canada. They will only be offering two year leases in Canada and US with a buyout option at the end of the 2 years in order to avoid people buying to sell it.
You are correct, most of us already know US market is less than most other markets with pricing. I thought you were refering to the Top Gear pricing which was in pounds. Your "official" pricing reveal is wrong though. The official pricing, if you want to know or get on the list that Lexus is compiling, you call 1 (866) 532-4794 and you will find out that the official pricing will be $375-400k(USD) depending on how the car is optioned. So, the car will more than likely be $400,000 (assuming NO mark-up like when the GTR fist came out) as I doubt there will be many stripped down LFA's rolling off the assembly.
