Don't fret: Lexus LFA not sold out, more allocated to U.S.

The recent rash of reports about the Lexus LFA being sold out appears to have been a bit premature.

Production of the LFA begins this December and Toyota intends to produce a total of 500 units which will be sold through an unorthodox leasing procedure. The process involves putting money down, signing a non-transferable lease for 24 months and then having the option to purchase the 552-horsepower supercoupe once the two-year term comes to a close. As reported previously, the leasing system is an attempt to thwart speculators who would undoubtedly purchase an LFA and then flip it for a profit on the exotic market.

As for selling out, Lexus officials have said that the number of interested parties has exceeded the total 500-unit run, but as always, interest is different than intent, and a few more slots for U.S. buyers still remain. Additionally, the original cap of 150 LFA's slated for Stateside consumption has increased by 21 units for a total of 171, although it's unclear where those additional LFAs are coming from.

I thought it was weird- the commercial for this sculpted ugly has been running at a furious pace.

More toyoyo spin WRT 'leased out', it seems.

Wow, I guess they aren't taking the camo off until it hits the showroom floor.

Wait, that's the actual nose and lights?


I do have to give them a little credit for the creative anti-flipping attempt though.
