Lexus LFA supercar is sold out, Toyota says

Toyota has sold all 500 copies of the Lexus LFA supercar that it plans to build.

Toyota will build only 20 copies of the 552-hp two-seater per month for a two-year period beginning in December.

Each car carries a $375,000 base sticker price. U.S. customers will have to lease the car for the first two years, with the option to buy it at the end of the lease term. Lexus is using that sales strategy as a way to keep control of the car and blunt speculators who would buy the car and then try to sell it for a much higher price.

Lexus won't say how many cars were sold in each region of the world. But the carmaker did say that one-third of the European orders came from Germany. Those buyers already have made down payments of $125,715.
