The Lexus LFA has gained some serious popularity from collectors recently, despite being out of production for several years. Prices for second-hand examples are on the rise, and we think this Nurburgring Edition is the pick of the bunch.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
Unlike most new cars, the LFA sports a spectacular-sounding high-revving naturally aspirated engine, rather than a muffled, uninspiring turbocharged unit. This engine, a 4.8-liter V10 with an exhaust tuned by Yamaha, might help explain the car's enduring popularity. If you've never heard an LFA at full-tilt, please, take the time to do so. The sound alone will make you want to own one.
This orange Nurburgring Edition is one of just 50 built, and comes with just 1600 miles on the clock. Nurburgring Edition cars come with a retuned suspension, stickier tires, a fixed rear wing, a big front splitter, dive planes, and a recalibrated six-speed single-clutch automatic transaxle for even faster shift times.
The LFA will be auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson's Palm Beach event in April 2018. , but the ad notes there is no reserve. If you're in the market for an LFA, we can't think of a more suitable one than this.
