We have the full scoop on pricing for the Lexus LFA, and its $20,000 matte paint job. The story inside.

Potential Lexus LFA customers in the US will have to put up a $60,000 deposit before leasing the $375k car.  Following that, the customer will pay $237,562.56 in two years of lease payments, with a remaining balloon payment of $93,750 due to keep the vehicle.

Total cost: $391,312.56.  That does not include a $700 acquisition fee, taxes, paperwork, or any options.  A matte paintjob brings the cost up $20,000, colored stitching goes upwards of $10,000, polished finish on the wheels is $2,500, and painted brake calipers go for $1,000.

Those interested in purchasing the Lexus LFA will have to put up $10,000 immediately after being notified they can buy the car.  Following a credit check, they will have to put up another $50,000 deposit, and submit to a second credit exam just before delivery.

If a dealer were to waive the deposit for some reason, the customer could expect to pay $12,398.44 every month for 24, and then pay the same balloon payment.  Any deposit demanded would then be applied against the monthly costs.

The Lexus LFA uses a 4.8-liter V10 engine that produces 552 horsepower (560 PS / 412 kW).  Mated to a six-speed Automated Sequential Gearbox, the car reaches 60 mph in 3.6 seconds.  Top speed is over 200 mph.

Orders will be accepted up until June.  Only 500 vehicles will be produced.
