This Brown Stone Lexus LFA is a 1 of 1 weapon that would leave Clarkson sweating

*Insert drool emoji here*

The way I see it, the LFA rose to icon status overnight because it was powered by one of the best-sounding V10s ever built and also because it caught the world by surprise. No one saw it coming. For starters, it was built by Toyota using the Lexus marque, which was a bit odd, and it was also very rare and expensive. The $375,000 price tag looked a bit steep at the time but with hindsight, it was more than justified because the LFA is awesome, yes, but also because it somehow became an instant classic. And a bankable one at that.

It's very hard to find a Lexus LFA in the pre-owned market and when you do, it usually costs a lot more than it did when it was new. In fact, pre-owned LFAs have been selling for double sticker for years and I'm 100 % confident this is no exception. Only 500 units were built but this particular model, no #225, is the only LFA in existence with a Brown Stone paint scheme.

This gorgeous dark shade of brown is complemented by the LFA's signature 20-inch silver wheels with red calipers and carbo-ceramic brake discs. The interior is upholstered in tan leather, with carbon fibre and aluminum accents, and of course there's a plaque between the seats which confirms that the car is number 225 of the 500.

Under the Brown Stone hood lives a 4.8-liter V10, developed in partnership with Yamaha, which produces 552, 354 lb-ft of torque and a range of intoxicating and compelling noises. Apart from the beautiful paintjob and the V10 and the lovely interior, you'll also find a window sticker revealing the original $394,400 price tag.

This LFA is currently available for sale from Marshall Goldman in Cleveland, Ohio with a 'call for price' tag and it comes with only 507 miles on the clock. I think we all know what that means.

  • It looks good but I'd prefer it in yellow as seen in TG's episode with the Viper and Aston (Vanquish?).
