Lexus LFA --- or Lexus LOL ???

I have seen this car on alot of Lexus commercials on different channels and was wondering WTF.. It is a good looking car, it caught my eye with its exquisite curves, they are spending some major coin on advertising. Whats the Dealio??

I was actually intrigued by this car and it really turned my head!

SO I went to the Lexus website and was actually saying to myself WOW not a bad ride, I can order it in Pink, Purple, Aqua, or about 30 other colors.. Ohh and Alcantara is an option!! WOO HOO!

I was thinking as many times I saw this car on a commercial on cable TV it would prob run around $100,000 to $120,000..

Then I got to the price and I LOL'd hard.....


4.8L V10 552hp
9000 max RPM
202mph top speed
Starting at $375,000

Starting at $375,000???

Starting at $375,000???????

STARTING AT $375,000!!!!!!! LMAO


Now I am not hating on Lexus owners here but hear me out on this..

Why would anyone pay $375k for this car when you can get a BRAND NEW Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari, etc for less??

I swear Lexus has gone bonkers.. This car is no where near a Lambo, Porsche, Or Ferrari...


BRAND NEW Prices Below (all are starting base prices)

2011 Lexus LFA - $375,000
2010 Lambo Gallardo - $221,000
2010 Lambo Murcielago - $354,000
2009 Ferrari 599 - $320,580
2009 Ferrari F430 - $218,310
2010 Ferrari California - $192,000
2010 Porsche 911 Turbo - $143,000
2010 Audi R8 - $146,000
2010 Aston Martin DBS - $273,000

Its one thing to try to compete with Mercedes and BMW but I think they are way in over their head trying to go after the exotics..

Its sad enough people spend alot of money on a Lexus then three years down the road you can buy the exact car with Toyota Camry badges...

Whats your thoughts?

Please go away. The car is already completely sold out, supply vs demand. Try searching before you spam.


Also, I hate Lexus and the LFA.

Well thanks for the rude replies..

I really did a forum search.. But just noticed I did not select search "off topic" as well

I guess I was wrong, so sorry for creating a new thread, my mistake..

To the bad replies I got you can go %$#^ &^$&##@^ have a good day!

If I was crazy rich id buy it for the instrument cluster alone.

As for the price... its probably because they arent making alot of these so they
will be super rare

EDIT: I just was on the site and the interior configurator is sick! So many options

According to some reports even at $375,000 Toyota was still loosing like $200k on every one that they sold.

Probably tough to amortize 10 years of development across 500 cars.

"Giving shit" from behind a computer screen doesn't make anyone less of a pussy.
