The company reported on its sales over the past year, and despite the positive dynamics, as well as the popularity of some models, there are also obvious outsiders.

The Lexus LFA sports coupe is a 2010 model produced for only two years. Then the circulation was strictly limited to 500 copies. But as we see now, the car is not much in demand and some dealers still sell it. According to the latest report, in 2018 two more coupe units were sold, the company only had 7 new copies and 2 exhibition samples in its hands.

It is worth noting that now the model has any value from fans of the company and collectors. In the model lineup of Lexus there is a sporty LC, which completely occupied this niche. In 2018, it was sold in the amount of 1 979 units and refers to the 2017 model year.

 Under the hood of the LC is an atmospheric 470 hp V8 engine, or a hybrid system with a power of up to 354 horsepower. Lexus LFA, in turn, has an interesting, but outdated design. Under the hood, hides a 4.8-liter V10 engine capable of developing up to 560 horsepower and 480 Nm of torque.

According to the latest information, the cost of the Lexus LFA sports car was at around $ 375,000 for the base version.

Meanwhile, Lexus revealed a conceptual version of the new drone. In Las Vegas, on January 7, CES will hold an exhibition of consumer electronics, where the modernized unmanned LS sedan will be publicly presented.
