Buyers for LFA Supercar Must be ‘Liked’ by Lexus

Luxury Cars: The days of walking into a showroom and buying a $350,000 car you can afford to buy are apparently over. If you want to own a new Lexus LFA, it is not enough to simply have the cash. Lexus must be certain that a potential buyer is “appropriate” to be an owner of its first supercar. All potential buyers will be handpicked by the automaker.

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, an application must be submitted to Lexus in order for the firm to know its prospective buyers better. The company wants to know how often they drive, where they drive, other cars owned, and where they live. With only 20 being made per month starting in 2011, the company wants to ensure none of those LFAs ends up just setting on some rich guy’s front lawn.

Want one? If so and you think Lexus would like your commercial appeal, drop by a dealership and fill out an application. If that doesn’t work out, there are a few places in Italy and Germany that probably would be willing to sell one of their fanciful six-figure supercars to you. I’m just saying.

Dust: Hard to find fault with zero-to-60 mph in less than four seconds.. 552 horsepower, V-10 engine; and luxurious throughout.
