If you've wanted to get your hands on the Lexus LFA but you were worried about the costs, don't be - as the figures are right here. First, you have to put up a $60,000 deposit before leasing the $375,000 car. Then, you would need to pay $237,562.56 in two years of lease payments. There is a remaining balloon payment of $93,750 due to keep the vehicle.
So far, that totals to $391,312.56. To this amount, you would have to add a $700 acquisition fee, taxes, paperwork, and any other options you might want.
A matte paintjob will cost you $20,000, colored stitching is priced from $10,000, polished finish on the wheels is $2,500, and painted brake calipers are for $1,000. If these amounts don't dissuade you one bit, take note that you have to wait for a notification telling you that you can buy the car.
Then you're required to put up $10,000. After a credit check, you need to make another $50,000 deposit, and submit to a second credit exam just before delivery.
If a dealer decides to waive the deposit, you would pay $12,398.44 every month for 24 months, and then pay the same balloon payment. Of course, any deposit demanded would be applied against the monthly costs.
Powering the Lexus LFA is a 4.8-liter V10 engine that delivers 552hp (560 PS / 412 kW). Mated to a six-speed Automated Sequential Gearbox, the car can accelerate to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and hit a top speed of over 200 mph. Only 500 examples will be made of this car. Orders are accepted until June.
