Here's your chance to buy Paris Hilton's Lexus LFA
Yes and, believe it or not, it's not that expensive
Now normally, whenever I write about cars for sale, I start with a brief history of the car, condition and so and so forth. In this instance, I want to talk about the price right from the outset because this costs $495,900 and that, for a Lexus LFA, is not bad at all. It is actually a bargain.
We all know the LFA, we all love it. Lexus began working on it in the early 2000s and development took so long because at some point, Lexus engineers decided to scrap the project and start from scratch when they decided to make the car from carbon fibre. It was eventually introduced in 2010 and only 500 were made. It costs $375,000 when it was, for reason Lexus always maintained they were still selling it at a loss, and it somehow managed to retain its value because it was an instant classic.
It's powered by a Yamaha-tuned, naturally-aspirated 4.8 L V10 engine, putting out 553 hp, coupled with a simple 6-speed automatic. Even though performance was great but not stellar, most car people agree that this is definitely one of the best-sounding road cars ever made.
This particular LFA, number 108 of 500, was acquired by Paris Hilton (yes, *the* Paris Hilton) and comes with pearl white paint and only 3,930 miles on the clock. It is up for sale from Marshall Goldman in Cleveland, Ohio.
I've never seen interior like that on an LFA but I think it looks good. It's a mixture of white leather, blue leather, blue Alcantara and carbon fibre elements. It's not subtle but I wouldn't call it vulgar, either.
If I had that kind of cash to spend on a car, I'd buy the LFA without a moment's hesitation. In fact, if I had a million dollars to spend on a car I'd look for two LFAs without a moment's hesitation. This, and then another one in blue.
