Did You Want a Lexus LFA or an Aventador? Get In Line

By | February 6, 2013

Lamborghini Aventador and Lexus LFATwo of the world’s most beautiful supercars, the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster and the Lexus LFA are hard to come by and very desired.  Were you looking to buy one?  Good luck!

Roy Malladay and the Last Lexus LFA

The Lexus LFA is powered by a 4.8L, 553 horse, V10 which absolutely screams!  For the performance you get, the car may be a bit overpriced, costing nearly $400,000, but you get some serious exclusivity.  Lexus only built 500 of them.  Of those 500, only 168 of them were destined for the US.  If you want one you are too late…  The last new one had been sold.  Car number 499 is now owned by Roy Malladay.  He also owns the number 3 car, the first one in the US.  Must be nice to own BOTH the first and last models for the US.  The thing is though, number 499 is also the last one that will be offered to the public.  The 500th car will be a museum car.  A sad fate for such a beast.  Those wanting to buy a LFA in the future will likely need an even deeper wallet, a bit of patience, and the time to constantly be cruising duPont Registry and JamesList.  Currently, there are several listed all costing as much as $500k.

Lamborghini Aventador RoadsterThe newest Lamborghini to come from Sant’Agata Bolognese is the Aventador Roadster.  The 691HP Aventador was already a stunner, but chop the top off and it makes the “normal” version look like a Honda Civic.  Okay, maybe not quite to that extreme but you get the idea.  As with any new Lambo, everyone wants one.  So many want the new Roadster that it is sold out through at least summer of 2014.  So if you want one you’d better get in line.  However, there have been reports that if you have enough dough and are will to pay an extra-hefty premium you might be able to get yours a little quicker.  Good luck with that!  Especially given that the car already costs around $450,000 without options.
