Unlike black, silver, and red - brown is not one of the most common shades you would see on a car, especially on limited edition models like the 2012 Lexus LFA.
A couple of years ago, Lexus came out with the LFA supercar and decided they would only build 500 examples of the said model. Years later, the Japanese sports coupe has become hot in the second-hand market. Originally priced at $375,000 in the United States, buyers are willing to spend almost double the amount for a second hand unit. An example would be this Pearl Brown LFA, which is supposed to be a one-off, that’s being offered for $645,000 on James Edition.
This bronze LFA is equipped with a 4.8 liter V10 that can generate an impressive 552 horsepower (412 kilowatts) at 8,700 rpm with a torque of 354 pound-feet (480 Newton metres). In just 3.6 seconds, the LFA could go from 0 - 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour), and can continue to a top speed of 202 miles per hour (325 kph). Despite all that power, this example has only been driven by a total of 1,074 miles. The engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that gives power to the rear-wheels.
Out of 500 examples, the one and only Pearl Brown LFA is number 95. The car naturally has some aggressive lines, which gives it its angular look, but the bronze paint helped tone this down and now it looks curvier. Inside the LFA is a combination of orange and black leather, which looks really good with the bronze exterior.
The number 95 example is an American-spec car, but is currently located in the United Arab Emirates. So it was probably exported to the UAE after being delivered to the US.
There is no doubt that the LFA supercar is powerful, but still, Lexus had a $70,000 Nurburgring Package that makes the car perform exceptionally - pushing it to generate 562 horsepower (419 kilowatts) with the new V10 engine. The package also comes with a quicker-shifting gearbox, additional carbon fiber body parts, and a returned suspension lowering it further by 0.4 inches (1 cm). All these upgrades enable the LFA to complete a lap at the Green Hell in 7 minutes and 14.64 seconds. What makes this package unbeatable is that you’ll get a one-year pass to drive around the Nurburgring. It even comes with a manual.
This model goes all the way back to 2012. Today, it is the LC500 that takes its place with a starting price of $92,995. It may not be cheap, but it is still more affordable than the LFA. This is also because it is not a limited-run model like the 2012 LFA.
