Lexus is still opened to an LFA successor as a company official has stated as he believes that every generation deserves the right to have a supercar like this.
The Lexus LFA was one hot ride to own, despite its extremely expensive price, and the Japanese based automaker is still opened into developing a successor of the model. The announcement hasn’t been made in an official press release but by the company’s executive vice president, Mark Templin, who has recently spoken to Bloomberg.
“Akio believes that every generation deserves to have a car like an LFA, so we’re building an LFA for the generation we have today. At some point, there may be another special car for another generation”, said the Lexus official to the source mentioned above.
Lexus has produced the LFA in Motomachi, Toyota City, Japan, between 2010 and 2012 and the supercar came with a front mid-engine and a rear-wheel drive layout, in a two-door coupe body style. Power came from a 4.8 liter V10 engine, rated at 560 HP (412 kW) at 8,700 rpm and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque, available from 3,700 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration was made in 3.7 seconds and top speed stood at 326 km/h (203 mph).
