Lexus Pays Tribute to its LFA


It may have gone out of production, but the LFA allowed Lexus to gain further knowledge about advanced building techniques and materials.

Lexus has sadly ended production of its LFA supercar, a machine that was in development for 10 years before the first units rolled off the assembly line in Japan. All told, just 500 examples were built and every single one was picked up for a price of $375,000 each. With its 4.8-liter V10 that produces 552 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque, the LFA can go from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 202 mph. Sadly, Lexus currently has no plans to build more LFAs (even rumors of a roadster variant have been shot down).

However, it claims the knowledge gained in terms of advanced materials and building techniques will be applied to all future models, which will certainly be much less expensive. And that is something we’re truly excited about. Still, it's sad to see the LFA leave way too soon.
