First Production Lexus LFA Crash


It was only a matter of time — here are photos from the first known crash of a production Lexus LFA:

Details are sparse, but the sleuths over at Club Lexus have determined that this is LFA #142, which was originally delivered to Lexus of Orlando.

According to CarFax, the accident happened on October 8th, 2011, after which the LFA was picked up by Howard Brown & Sons Auto Sales in Sun Valley, California before ultimately being sold in Texas by Expo Motor Cars.

As for the damage itself, I can only assume that the accident was in traffic — both the front and rear of the car appear to be affected, which suggests the LFA was sandwiched between two other cars. Regardless, it’s not a pretty sight.

    I thought Paris as well….her interior is blue and this one looks maybe red. Really dark shot though. So sad…..I would not have wanted to be the other two drivers involved.

    One before this one. On the Nurburgring during the week that mr.Lida has set hi record run. It was a blue one, right hand drive, if I correctly remeber.

    This LFA is sold already. Even wrecked LFAs get sold quickly.

    What was the record?? Blue LFA is the European press car. Is there any web page to confirm this??

    Hi, sorry for the late reply. The record I referred too was the 7.14 run set by Mr.Lida on sept.02.2011. This you can find going thru the LFA messages.

    The blue LFA was one of the cars that were there for people to drive, some were Euro spec, others USA spec and right hand drives for the australian and Thailand customers.

    The blue LFA had hit the rail on the right hand side and was taken away on a recovery vehicle.I do not think the damage was that big but enough to take the LFA home.

  • Maarten

    Im sorry if I was not clear on this but the record set by Mr.Lida was in the Gazoo race LFA.
