Next LFA is... a Bicycle

Offbeat

With all the 500 LFAs now sold, this is the next best thing.

So we now know the Stig loves the LFA, but would the non-talking gimp-like driving-deity dig a bicycle forged by the same hands that crafted the $375,000 supercar? If leg-powered transportation is his thing then yes. That’s because the LFA Works - Toyota’s special assembly plant used exclusively for the supercar - is where the limited edition Lexus F Sport Roadbike was hand-built. Only 100 units were made, each embodying the LFA’s “principles and philosophy,” and will only be sold in Japan.

The bicycle is riddled with the super-strong lightweight material, from the frame and forks to the seat, handlebars, rims and crankshafts. Yet the workshops’s carbon-fiber manufacturing machines are not responsible for these carbon-fiber parts. These were brought in from Taiwan. Go figure. The black-and-white carbon bike weighs just 15 pounds, comes with 22 electronically controlled front gears using levers modeled on F1 racecar paddle shifters for instantaneous gear changes, and a carbon-fiber frame that’s been through three hours of hand polishing. 1 million Yen (a shade over $10,000) is the asking price, which 35 customers have already deemed reasonable to pay for a bike.
