Lexus LFA Art Car Celebrates 10 Years Of Lexus F Performance Cars

It’s also designed to mark Lexus’ debut at the Total 24 Hours of Spa race.

This weekend, Lexus will be pitting RC GT3s at the Total 24 Hours of Spa race. To mark the Emil Frey Lexus Racing team’s debut at the event, the automaker has commissioned Portuguese artist Pedro Henriques to create a unique LFA art car to showcase at the endurance race. It also celebrates the tenth anniversary of Lexus’ F performance brand, which has already been commemorated with the RC F and GS F 10th anniversary editions limited to 350 examples.

The swirling grey pattern, which the artist says is supposed to represent movement, applied to the LFA’s white paint is subtle compared to other more striking art cars. “My inspiration for this livery was the idea of fluidity present in the contemporary life, where things are in constant movement and it’s hard to freeze anything," Pedro explains. "The lines in the drawings follow this feeling of going everywhere and never stopping; a progressive life.”

“I wanted to reach an organic feeling by using handmade material and liquid lines in the elements spread through the car. By doing this I hope to express a feeling where the car becomes a less defined shape, in constant mutation in its movement.” The LFA was Lexus’ first attempt at a supercar, and it certainly left a lasting impression.

Power is provided by a sublime-sounding 4.8-liter V10 that revs up to 9,000 rpm. Only 500 were built, but last year Lexus said there were still 12 models unsold in the US despite production ending in 2012. We’re still pining for an LFA successor over five years after it finished production. It could still happen too, as Lexus hasn’t ruled out the possibility.
