Lexus Australia has confirmed that it has secured a limited run of just five LFA supercars for the local market.
With only 500 examples of the 413kW supercar to be sold worldwide, it is remarkable that Australia has been allocated any at all, surprising even Lexus Australia Chief Executive John Roca.
"The fact that Australia has been allocated any LFA vehicles is testament to the importance of the Australian arm of the global Lexus brand." said Mr Roca.
As the most exclusive and powerful Lexus in Australia, the brand is expecting the LFA to be in high demand - with the only hurdle being how to allocate the five cars.
"Our next challenge is managing the allocation process - we are already certain that we will not have enough LFAs to fulfil demand,"
The final five lucky customers will have to wait until as late as 2012 to get behind the wheel though, with production of the LFA due to commence in 2010 and run for two years, with 20 hand-built vehicles delivered each month to customers globally.
