Lexus’ first supercar, the 2012 LFA, will be limited to just 500 units worldwide when it goes on sale next year. It also will hit 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, thanks to a carbon fiber-reinforced plastic body and a 552-horsepower, 4.8-liter V-10 engine.

That’s why the $375,000 price tag sounds almost reasonable, and that’s before any destination charges. Lexus is also leasing the LFA with an intent to buy, which is a bit strange, but it might be to keep out prospectors looking to run up the price early in the sales process.

The $375,000 is a base price, with custom colors and interior trim adding more. But for the base price, you can pick one of the three following configurations:

Configuration 1 – Leather or Alcantara-trimmed seats.
Configuration 2 – Leather or Alcantara-trimmed seats, Lexus navigation system and Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound system.
Configuration 3 – Leather or Alcantara-trimmed seats, Lexus navigation system, Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound system and Lexus Enform with Safety Connect.

If the price is in your wheelhouse, don’t wait. Go to your local dealer and try to sweet talk them to even be considered for the LFA. In the rarefied air of supercars, most are spoken for well before they ever see public pavement. It might help if you buy an LX or LS — or two — to help things along.
