2012 Lexus LFA Pricing Details: Lease One For Just $12,398.44 Per Month

Follow Nelson

If you're looking for a technological bonanza with an inexplicable 10-into-3 exhaust system, there's only one answer: the 2012 Lexus LFA. But you'd better come packing, because the $375,000 Lexus supercar will run you $12,398.44 per month for a 24-month lease. But you have to pay the total of $297,562.56 up front as one lump sum.

Of course, that doesn't include the $700 acquisition fee, the $10,000 ordering deposit, the extensive credit check, or the extra cost of any of the mountain of options that can be added to the car's base price. All told, insurance included, the LFA can be expected to cost near $15,000 per month to lease.

Things could get considerably pricier, however, if you decide to heap on the options: $3,000 for a solid or metallic paint job, $20,000 for a matte finish, $2,500 for polished wheels, another $1,000 for special interior stitching, up to $9,000 for a custom-color interior. Of course, there are lower-dollar options, too, such as $100 headlamp washers and $200 winglets that can be added on. Go for the full monty and you're looking at $410,000 or more in total.

The standard LFA comes nicely configured in three basic packages, however. Configuration 1 includes leather or Alcantara seats and trim in a choice of three standard colors. Configuration 2 adds Mark Levinson audio and navigation. Configuration 3 steps it up with Lexus Enform with Safety Connect, voice commands, and XM Radio/NavTraffic/NavWeather.

Once you've taken on the lease, however, don't expect to be able to get out from under it: it's non-transferable except in the event of your death. At the end of the two-year lease term, you can elect to purchase the car for an additional $93,750 (assuming the base MSRP of $375,000). That makes the total amount you'll pay for the car $391,312.56 including all lease payments and the residual value buyout. If you choose not to purchase the vehicle at the end of the lease, you'll be responsible for any mileage over 15,000 miles per year at a rate of $0.20 per mile. We don't imagine that will be an issue for many.

  3. There is no reason why anyone would ever bow to this. This car is 100% joke. Could you imagine the shear cost of repairing damage if some fool dings or crashes this?! You'd probably need to visit Bernie Madoff in his cell/hospital room to come up with that cash!

  4. RIDICULOUS, Toyota is sadly mistaken if they believe these will sell well. Lexus is for the upper middle class. They are ugly cars and offer nothing unique. Plus, this car will probably be recalled 10 times anyway.

  5. You don't lease a car like this, you buy one. The idea of offering a lease is ridiculous.

  6. Actually, the reason behind the decision to only offer as a lease is a good one--they can't legally fix the prices of cars sold at retail, but they can fix lease prices. And by stopping the cars from being transferred for two year once leased, they thereby cut out the speculation market--people that would buy up the cars and then re-sell them for $50,000 over sticker, as happened (with smaller $$ figures) with the GT-R.
    But I agree, the price is STEEP considering what you could buy as an alternative.

  7. I agree, Toyota/Lexus have enough to deal with. They are insulting the buyers with this one. I think they should use the money for making this car and use it on Toyotas brakes, what good is a car that speeds up and can't stop. From a consumer point of view

  8. This car looks like it should be a 2014 Toyota Supra concept. This car should cost more than the Nissan GT-R. Who would pass up a Ferrari or Lamborghini for this???
