 Lexus LFA Production Specs and Images Released
Ever since Toyota decided to stop making the Supra, we’ve been waiting patiently (and not so patiently) for some kind of spiritual successor. We want a hot supercar with plenty of power and now we may finally be ready to hit the track once more. The Lexus LFA (also known as the Toyota LF-A during development) has now hit full production status and we’ve got all the details to go with it.

The concept vehicle has been making its rounds on the auto show circuit for some time, but concept cars never are quite the same as the final road versions. Thankfully, it seems like very little has changed for the production-ready Lexus LF-A. I have a feeling the Nissan GT-R guys are at least mildly interested.

Under the hood, you’ll find that the Lexus LFA supercar gets its grunt from a 4.8L 72-degree V10 good for 553 horsepower at 8700rpm. It generate 354 lb-ft of torque at 6800rpm and comes with a six-speed sequential shifter, a top speed of 201.94mph, a 0-62mph time of 3.7 seconds, and a redline at 9000rpm.

Other highlights include the torsen limited slip differential, a 48/52 weight distribution, 15.4″ front carbon ceramic rotors (14.2″ rear), and a limited run of just 500 units. It’s also notable that 65% of the body is carbon fiber, keeping the weight at just 3,263 pounds.
