Lexus to lease the LFA for two years, then sell it in order to avoid speculators

In a very surprising move on the supercar market, Lexus has just announced that its upcoming model, the LFA, will be leased to all of the customers in the United States, in order to avoid speculators.

But this isn’t your normal type of leasing though, as the company will accept customization orders from its customers, but won’t hand over the title to the car until two years have passed. At that point, the driver can pay up the remaining amount of money for the car in order to truly own it.

This new strategy will be used by Lexus in order to avoid speculators jacking up the price of the limited edition LFA supercar, and to really persuade people to use it everyday, and not put it on a pedestal in museum or something like that.

It is a bold move from Lexus, but if it will work, expect other supercar manufacturers to follow soon. What do you think? Leave a comment with your view.
