The first 3 (make that 6) Lexus LFAs arrive in the U.S.



My.IS moderator (and Club Lexus editor) Flipside909 was among the select few to be invited to Long Beach, California for the arrival yesterday of the first 3 Lexus LFAs destined for the United States. The first part of his account appears on the Kaizen Factor blog:

EXCLUSIVE: The first three production LFAs arrive in the USA. (PART 1) | Kaizen Factor

If I'm not mistaken All of the LF-As are a 3 year lease option ONLY! So there won't be any resale mayhem.

You are correct unless something changed, they also wanted to monitor where the cars were sold and where they stay.
