BMW and Lexus plan a new LFA

BMW and Lexus are currently working on a new generation of the LFA, as reports coming out of the Asian country are showing.

BMW and Lexus have apparently teamed up in order to create a successor of the iconic LFA. The announcement hasn’t been made official by any company but according to some Japanese reports, the two car manufacturers are currently working on a next generation of the LFA. This is said to borrow the plug-in hybrid technology from the BMW i8, which basically means a powerful petrol engine and an electric motor. The total output should stand at more than 600 or even 700 HP once the new supercar will hit the market.

As you probably remember, the Lexus LFA was carrying a 4.8 liter V10 engine, which was producing a total output of 560 HP (412 kW) at 8,700 rpm and it had a peak torque of 480 Nm (354 lb-ft), available at 6,800 rpm. The unit was connected to a six-speed sequential transmission with paddle shifters. The LFA was a two-seat supercar produced by Lexus between 2010 and 2012 in just 500 models. This had a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout and it was assembled in Motomachi, Toyota City, Japan.
