#2. What was the price tag of a brand-new Lexus LFA?
Lexus caught the world by surprise when it launched the LFA in 2010, its first – and so far only – supercar.
It was powered by a V10, made a wonderful noise and was limited to 500 units.

With a price tag of nearly $1m, the LaFerrari isn’t exactly cheap to begin with.

For that price, you could buy a couple of Porsches.
