Lot #1412 – Known for its 0 to 60 mph time of 3.6 seconds or less, the Lexus LFA is any supercar fan’s dream. This is the LFA Nürburgring Edition in black; a two-seat supercar.

With the driver sitting so close to the center of the vehicle, they are able to feel and control the vehicle like never before.
