First Production Lexus LFAs Arrive in North America


Lexus LFA Unboxing

The first production Lexus LFAs have arrived in North America, and Club Lexus editor Flipside909 was there to see them “unboxed” from their cargo containers — tuns out it’s quite the production:

  • Each LFA ships in its own clean container with a pink painted metal pallet designed specifically to secure the car during transport.
  • Each LFA pallet is sent back to Japan after use to transport the next shipment of cars. 5 can be stacked at one time.
  • The LFA is not covered in exterior plastic during transport. This is to ensure proper paint curing from the time it leaves the Motomachi Plant to its final destination.
  • It takes about 7-10 days (weather permitting) for an LFA to ship from the port in Japan to the Port of Long Beach.
  • All US bound LFAs will only go through Toyota’s facilities at the Port of Long Beach for de-vanning of the shipping container.
  • Each LFA will be delivered by a special Lexus transporter to the new owner’s preferred Lexus dealer.

Without further adieu, here are the first three North American LFAs:

#003 Metallic Silver on Red

Lexus LFA #003 Exterior

Lexus LFA #003 Interior

#006 LFA: Whitest White on Red

Lexus LFA #006 Exterior

Lexus LFA #006 Interior

#026 LFA Black on Black

Lexus LFA Black #026

Lexus LFA #026 Black Interior

(Have to say, that Black on Black LFA is probably my favorite color combination yet — it’s hardly practical for the daily grind, but then the LFA is hardly practical driver to begin with.)

    I cant believe this car is a Lexus….

    Its beyond magical . . . I dreamed of a Lexus this wonderful… never thought it would become true…

  • Travis

    @Miqui: I have a feeling the people buying this car will never see its true potential or kno how to unleash it.

    One of the best supercars of all time.

    LIKE THE BLACK

    I really dig the chrome rims… n thats odd because I never really dig chrome rims. The chrome rims are actually better for the car IMO they make the car look more rich rather then the sliver and white rims… wonder if they weight more tho…

    “Each LFA ships in its own clean container with a pink painted metal pallet designed specifically to secure the car during transport.”

    If I was a owner I would keep the container and pink painted pallet the car is on… very cool. I would have the container painted black with the Lexus sign on one side and the letters LFA on the other side… sweettttt that where I would park my LFA right in that container it came in.

    I am wild about the silver with red calipers—–every color will be outstanding in it’s own way—-this is the ultimate of excitement. Krew—what was the alloted number for US delivery. I would love to see the numbers by state and what cities.Now if we can get the roadster in production and more available for purchas.

    @MIKE DELORCA: I think a batch of about 20 has arrived. There are more that are still to be unboxed and hopefully we will see pictures of those unboxing soon.
