This Is The Widebody Lexus LFA That Should Have Been

Render / Comments

It's a wild-looking thing.

When it comes to crazy widebody kits, one of the names that stand out besides Liberty Walk is Prior Design. The tuning company has widened the Ford Ranger recently, but it's the company's virtual body kits that are even wilder. Last month, we saw an aggressive kit for the new Golf GTI, as well as a kit for the VW Beetle from Gran Turismo that will soon be available to buy in real life. The latest design is one that will almost certainly never see the light of day though, as it's for the long-dead Lexus LFA, one of the world's most beloved supercars.

As you can see, subtlety is not the aim of this kit, but we do like the relative restraint that has been shown in widening the iconic supercar. Rather than simply tacking bigger body panels on, this design shows a kit that follows the existing lines of the Lexus LFA. Even so, this is still an extreme rendering, with winglets and vents scattered all over. The rear diffuser is also much more aggressive and the hood gains additional vents. A new front splitter and side-skirt extensions feature too, as do Rotiform HUR wheels wrapped in Michelin rubber and a wing that is similar to that of the LFA Nurburgring Edition.

It's an extreme kit, and with the LFA no longer in production, something that will never see the light of day unless some very wealthy (and very crazy) LFA owner decides to commission a one-off example. Still, the fact that a prominent tuning company is still interested in the old supercar just goes to show how badly the world wants a successor to the original V10 monster. Sadly, the closest we're getting to a high-performance model from the Japanese automaker is the IS 500F Sport Performance, but hey, at least it's something. Maybe one day Lexus will find its mojo again, but for now, a new LFA remains just as much a fantasy as this body kit.
