Lexus LFA for Sale on eBay?


As crazy as it seems, it appears that Herb Chambers Lexus in Sharon, Massachusetts is selling a LFA on eBay — looks like Pearl Brown exterior with a Saddle Tan interior:

Considering that reselling a LFA may conflict with the buyer agreement, the sparse description on the sale page, and the fact that the windows are rolled up in the only photo of the interior, I have a couple doubts about the legitimacy of the auction — regardless, this LFA is currently on eBay with a “Buy it Now” price of $389,900 USD, with full payment required 7 days after purchase.

Update: Looks like this eBay sale is legitimate — from Autoblog:

What’s the hitch? Unsurprisingly, there are a couple of them. We spoke with the dealer, and according to them, before the title changes hands, the new owner will need to sign a first right of refusal contract with Lexus. If the buyer takes the car home and decides to sell it in the first two years, the automaker gets dibs on buying the car back.

According to the dealer, the original orderer of the car came in to inspect it, got a walk-around with Lexus’ LFA-specific expert who was on-hand to assist, briefly drove it and then decided he would let someone else purchase it.

Update 2: The auction has ended and the LFA is no longer available for sale — will try to get some details on what happened.

    God I wish I had enough money to buy this.. I’ll seriously choose this over any Italian or German car..

    The right wheels would set off this color better. Doesnt go well with the stock wheels.

    The Color will need some time to get used to…… Tan interior is nice too…. but this brown….ai yai yai……paying the full pop?  I’d rather place an order thru lexus and wait…… this car will be a tough sale…..unless you find the right buyer that actually likes the color.

  • Lexus Ben

    And you know what?  How could someone who pays $100K for the initial deposit to order the car……then decide not to purchase it when it arrives?   Any Herb Chambers will let that guy walk away with a commitment like that??  WTH??

    I don’t know the ins & outs of LFA purchasing (though you likely do),  but from what I’ve read over at Club Lexus, it sounds like the buyer would lose his $60k deposit. Does that sound right?

    He probably choose the wrong colour, came in, saw it and decided not to buy it. Wish I was there and he was kind enough to GIVE it to me…

    Who would order an LFA in baby-shit brown?  Especially when this car looks so good in so many colors.
