Stunning 72-Mile Lexus LFA Is Automotive Perfection

Auctions / Comments

This Pearl Yellow is just perfect.

If you're looking for something special, Bring a Trailer rarely disappoints. You can find anything from a classic Toyota Land Cruiser to an insane Corvette Callaway SledgeHammer. Today's find is one that still makes the hairs on the back of our necks tingle, just by looking at it. Yes, we've covered the Lexus LFA countless times and always said how the automaker should get rid of its LC Coupe and just reinvent the supercar already, but with every passing year, that seems more and more unlikely. Next year, the car will be a decade old, so perhaps Toyota's luxury arm will make our fantasies a reality. Until then, however, this super low-mileage example is the closest you're gonna get to a brand new LFA.

As you can see, it's finished in Pearl Yellow, with black and cream leather adorning the cabin. It's one of 500 examples made over a two-year production run and is powered by a 4.8-liter V10 that Yamaha helped develop. A six-speed Automated Sequential Gearbox handles the whipcrack shifts while Brembo carbon ceramic brakes (optioned with yellow calipers) take care of stopping duties. This model also boasts the optional headlight cleaners and rear wing side spoilers. It's a tasteful spec, but what makes it truly special is that it has just 72 miles on the clock and has spent most of the last nine years at Arlington Lexus, where the Illinois dealer's owner has had it on display since new.

Since it's practically still new, it comes with a window sticker, a black Vehicle Delivery Certificate, a clean Carfax report, a clean Illinois title, and all the included manufacturer literature. Another noteworthy feature is that this is one of the cars that were selected for factory quality confirmatory evaluation, which is why it was delivered with 27 miles on the clock. The owner obviously moved it about a bit since then, and maintenance has been kept up to date (the factory warranty is also still in place) with an oil change last being carried out in September 2020. Sadly, while the aforementioned window sticker says that, with all the options, this car cost $388,900 new, current bidding is at $630,000. If you have that and more, bidding closes in 10 days, on Friday the 2nd of July.
