For local buyers Lexus will release 165 copies of the model LFA, but only on the world market will do 500 units of the Japanese supercar. Reported earlier that the United States to deal with speculators, buy a car with a view to resale, Lexus has decided not to sell, and rent a supercar in the lease for two years. Upon expiration of the lease holder will be entitled to fully redeem Lexus LFA.
