Default Sewell Lexus LFA

A truck unloaded this Black LFA at Sewell Lexus in Dallas yesterday. Thought I'd share this pic!

Thanks for sharing.

Another great looking LFA, though I don't understand a black car in Texas.

Going on Autotrader info, Sewell has 2 cars (of the 11 currently on that site for sale).

So it has been sold now?? I wonder why he would "downgrade" to an SLR. Ofcourse, that might be because he wants a more comfortable GT cruiser while LFA is a much hardcore track oriented car.

No, he traded his SLR for the LFA... not LFA for SLR. I talked to a person at the dealership and its some guy with several Ferrari's and an SLR. He traded his SLR in for the LFA. The LFA came to Sewell on Thursday and was sold by that Saturday.

Cool! Cool! Thanks so much for sharing the news. Geat to hear he traded in his SLR for an LFA and not the other way around.

Looks like LFAs are now flying off the dealerships (even a wrecked one was sold quickly). Please keep more news coming.

Perhaps the buyer ordered this LFA via the dealership?

No, the LFA was brought to Sewell from another dealership because it sat at the other dealership for a couple of months. It was not ordered by this guy.

That's good news. There are a lot of wealthy folks in Dallas/Fort Worth area, and they love Lexus too. I believe one dealership here sold more Lexus than all of Canada in any given year.
