It's seriously cool.
The Lexus LFA has reached mythical status amongst fans of JDM cars, and collectors. Only 500 of these famed Japanese supercars were ever manufactured and are being snapped up by willing buyers at light-speed. A few years back we stumbled upon an ultra-rare LFA finished in Pearl Brown. It was the only one of its type and was selling at $645,000. This unique find is now back up for sale at Hyper Voitures for a bargain price of $680,000. Could the brown paint job be a curse, or is this LFA still a good investment?
Pearl Brown does not exactly sound like the first choice of paint color for an exotic supercar, but somehow it works on this 2012 Lexus LFA, and makes it all the more desirable in our humble opinion. This LFA features a contrasting orange leather interior and has only covered 1,074 miles, which means it hasn't travelled an inch since we first saw it go up for sale in July of 2017. Lexus is well-known for building super-reliable cars, so with the right maintenance, this LFA should outlast many supercars of the same era, especially when it comes to the longevity of the powertrain.
What makes the LFA such a special vehicle is what lies beneath the hood: Lexus went all out when it designed the LFA, and one of its main focus points was the 4.8-liter V10 engine. This powerplant produces 552 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque, which allows the LFA to sprint to sixty in only 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of an impressive 203 mph. The numbers are impressive, but it's the sound that this car makes that really helped it make a name for itself. There are few other cars, besides F1 race cars that sound this good. Consider it a privilege if you ever get to hear one out in the real world. This Pearl Brown example is already a collectors item, and deserves to go to a good home.
