Should I have taken this cheap Lexus LFA deal?

  • Published: 18 July 2018
  • Ed Bolian has bought and sold a lot of cars but there a few that got away that could have been great to own and great to flip. Ed tells us about a time when he was offered a Lexus LFA that would have been very cheap but would it be a good idea to take it? Photos by IG @ebouret and @winningauto

            Understandable. If you don't like the car, why bother? If it was to keep, I wouldn't. Plus at the time you still liked the RUF so you'd be swapping something you liked for a car you didn't in a colour you hated. If it was to flip, sure it MIGHT make sense assuming you could guarantee a sale, but you couldn't

                  im sorry, but your opinion can’t get my respect. the LFA is a great looking and sounding car. a RUF is just a modified and upgraded porsche.

                    Doesn't like LFA's. Especially his because it's black. Then shows picture of blue LFA and the RUF pictures he shows. Surprise! The RUF is what color? Black. Plus, anyone who doesn't care for the sound of an LFA needs to get their hearing checked. Get out of the exotic car biz. Or both. No car sounds more like a Formula 1 car than an LFA. Not to mention only 500 were produced for the entire world. Oh, and it's a Lexus. Which means it will likely be more reliable than any other exotic you have ever driven except perhaps a Ford GT. I'm thinking the 2005 edition.

                      The LFA was and still is too pricy, but for me it was definitely a cool car with an amazing sound

                        LFA has the sound going for it, rest of it is kind of.. I dunno. Boring? So did most people think apparantly as that car kind of came and went and is now mostly forgotten. They made 500 of them, you never see them anywhere. People dont drive them. VW and Bugatti made less Veyrons, yet you see those a lot more out and about.

                          I drove an LFA and I found it heavy and soulless. I also agree that it’s not very good looking.

                                Sorry I don't have time to discuss it
                                That sounds clowny

It's basically a supercar Type R without the styling.
