Since I’ve never seen the Lexus LFA in real life before, I cannot be sure that’s what I saw on the freeway.
Apparently, they started production in 2010 and stopped production in 2012 with about 500 on the road. The MSRP can be anywhere from $375k to $445k depending on which year and package.
With a V10 and carbon fiber body, it can reach a top speed of 202mph (electronically limited), and 0-60 in 3.6 seconds.
Hopefully, I will see it again and will be able to get a picture of it.
