2012 Lexus LF-A
The new standard-bearer of the Lexus line is the LF-A, a limited-production, carbon-fiber supercar with a sticker price of $375,000. Tested at Germany's famed Nurburgring, its otherworldly performance is designed to cast a halo over the entire Lexus line. But window-shopping is all that's possible. Toyota already has orders for all 500 it plans to build. To deter speculators, all U.S customers are required to lease the car for two years before they are able to buy it.
