At least 500 other folks seem to agree, since the car is sold out of its limited production run. But there’s hope that the fire-breathing madness will continue in the form of an LFA roadster, which should hit the streets (tracks garages) in mid-2014.

If you’re a bigger fan of the heart-safe and slightly less wallet-draining models typically associated with Lexus, read on!
