Lexus LFA, the super luxurious, hand built two seater sportscar, that sat at the top of the Lexus range has reached its end. The company which announced at the very onset that only 500 units of this supercar would be produced has achieved its aim and the last of the 500 units is all set to be rolled off the Motomachi Plant, Aichi Prefecture.

The last model, a white LFA with Nurburgring Package was produced on 14th December thus marking the end of this most expensive Japanese road car ever built. Its entire manufacturing, assembly and painting operations required a total of 170 specially trained workers with only one unit built in a day.

Pricing stood at $375,000 for the base model while the Nürburgring package is priced at $445,000. The vehicle is powered by a 4.8 liter V10 engine offering 560 hp. LFA can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 202 mph. The final example will be finished in Whitest White and will prominently display a plaque proclaiming this as the 500 and final example.
