Exactly two years to the day when production began, Lexus has announced that the final LFA has rolled off the assembly line and into the sunset.
We knew from the get-go that the Lexus LFA supercar would have an extremely limited production run - just 500 units to be exact. Production officially began in 2010, and today Lexus has announced that it has completed its planned LFA production run. The last LFA, painted white and fitted with the Nurburgring Package, rolled off the assembly line at the Motomachi Plant in Aichi Prefecture, Japan on December 15th - the exact anniversary of the day when production began two years ago.
Due to the complex technical and mechanical know-how the LFA requires, assembly is handled by a team of 170 hand-picked workers who handled everything from parts manufacturing to vehicle assembly and painting. All told, just one LFA was built per day. Powered by a 4.8-liter V10 mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox, the car produces a total of 552 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. It blasts from 0-60 in just 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 203 mph, all for $375,000. Potential buyers who feel they missed out, however, may get another chance, as word has it that an additional run of LFA Roadsters will soon follow.
