Only 500 examples of the awesome Lexus LFA supercar were made in its short, two-year production span. When new, demand outstripped supply; and the same is true for pre-owned examples of our depreciation-proof modern classic. On the rare occasion when a Lexus LFA does come up for sale, it is usually snapped up by appreciative enthusiasts.
With that in mind, and if you have the funds available, you may want to move quickly on this newly advertised example.
Offered for sale by The Octane Collection, this beautiful example is presented in metallic silver (paint code 1F2) with bright red leather seats set against black carpet. Its right-hand drive layout makes it one of just 198 examples produced in this configuration, and provides additional encouragement for this engineering masterpiece to find a new home in the UK.
According to the accompanying information, the LFA was delivered in early 2011 by Lexus Fourways in South Africa, which makes it one of the earliest examples in the two-year production run at the specialist Motomachi Plant. The supplying dealer completed every one of the seven scheduled services that have led up to its current odometer reading of 6,381 miles.
The exterior is described as being in excellent condition, while the interior is said to be exceptional, with no signs of wear. Which leads us to the most important question: How much is this iconic machine being offered for?
The Octane Collection is offering it for a cool £539,995, and after undergoing UK registration it will be supplied freshly serviced with all duty and taxes paid.
