The track in question is the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Salinas, California, where the lucky winner will be able to flog the V-10-powered coupe along with The Skip Barber Racing School. If that isn’t enough for enthusiasts, the day’s drive in the LFA also comes with a one-on-one session with racer Scott Pruett, who has raced in NASCAR, Champ Car, IMSA, Trans-Am, and Grand-Am races.
Powering all LFAs is a 4.8-liter V-10 engine rated at 553 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque that power is routed to the rear wheels through a six-speed automated sequential gearbox. Lexus quotes a 0-to-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph. The automaker specially built a loom to weave the carbon fiber needed to create the car’s carbon fiber reinforced polymer body, and, unsurprisingly, gave the “base” car a price tag of $375,875, including destination.
Getting a chance to see an LFA – let alone to slip behind the wheel of one – will be a real treat, as Lexus is only building 20 copies per month. Fans who want to win a chance to drive the LFA will need to act quickly – while the Golden Opportunity Sales Event may go on through Labor Day, the LFA sweepstakes closes on August 21 at 1:00 p.m. PDT. And for those who are thinking that they might be able to move the decimal point over on the LFA’s price tag thanks to the annual sales event, think again: GOSE offers don’t apply to the range-topping coupe.
