2010 Lexus LF-A

Fall 2010 - Limited Availability

Lexus LF-A Preliminary Specifications

Powertrain
Engine: V10 (under 5.0 liters)
Horsepower: More than 500
Top Speed: Approximately 200 MPH

Tire Size
Front: 265/35R20
Rear: 305/30R20

Dimensions (inches)
Overall Length: 175.6
Overall Width: 74.6
Overall Height: 48.0
Wheelbase: 102.3

From what I've read, HP actually equals to 600+ HP and retails will most likely be in the $170,000 range. It is also expected to beat GT-R's lap time so time will tell.

Is it wearing some disguise body kit? I hope that's not the final mock up...

I personally don't think Lexus has the clout to pull of a car in that price range, regardless of how fast it might be. Most people don't care how fast the car is when they're spending 170k, they want the prestige.

So, you're gonna have to spend 2x the money to maybe beat the GT-R? Who are they trying to scam?

Interesting, at that price I'd have to see some lap times against some of the other big guns in order to truly create my opinion. As far as looks go, meh. tri exhaust doesn't do anything for me, but I said that with the 458 and now I love the car. Would still take a nice GT2 for that price though

Lexus is considered an upmarket cache, so it shouldn't be so difficult to sell on name. However, Darknworm made the best statement, when he referenced the fact that you're paying twice as much to edge out the GT-R.

This thing looks outdated already.

Who wants a Lexus supercar? They can't even make a decent sport car...

You guys realize that is disguise right? That is not what the car will look like. What are those air scoops directing air to? Certainly not the engine located in the front.

We have a regional Lexus office here and two guys I know there say Lexus corporate is going to do this. My local dealer has significant deposits on the two cars they are allotted.

I'm not sure this is the final design, at least I hope not as it's a bit busy.

They've already been racing these cars... they had one of the racers on display at Pebble Beach. From the prototype I saw at the LA Auto Show a few years ago, the scoops lead to those grills on the back, and inside those grills are two giant fans which are used to cool rear mounted radiators.

If it manages to stay out of repair shops it will have accomplished its mission

front / side reminds me of the Skyline a bit.. rear reminds me of how ugly cars are getting.

Is it expected to beat the Corvette C6 ZR1?
