Lexus LFA (2010-2012)
Although Lexus hasn’t been around for as long as some of the other big sports car manufacturers, having only been founded in 1989, the brand has managed to make a name for itself rather quickly. The car that we are going to take a look at today is the Lexus LFA. Launched in 2010, the supercar was the result of three concept cars that have debuted years prior to the LFA’s launch.
When it comes to styling, the vehicle definitely had a lot to offer. It looked quite interesting, which is always important when it comes to supercars. Although it had a sporty feel to it, that didn’t feel too overwhelming. It merely gave the car character and made it slightly more bold and unique. The familiar Lexus aesthetic was also present which, together with the sportiness, made the car an instant hit.
Under the bonnet was a completely new 4.8-litre even firing V10 engine. It produced 412 kW (560 PS) and was capable of reaching a top speed of 202 mph.
The car was quite well received, however it only remained in production until 2012 with 500 units produced.
In 2012, before the vehicle was discontinued, a circuit-tuned version of the LFA was introduced.
The base price of the standard LFA was $375,000 with the circuit variant costing $445,000.
Due to the car’s popularity, many have wondered whether Lexus would ever bring out a replacement. In 2016, the brand released a statement that at the moment there are no plans for another supercar, however it’s possible that at some point it will produce another such vehicle.
