The Lexus LFA will not be getting a successor anytime soon, as the company has recently announced.
If you have been a fan of the Lexus LFA, you will be disappointed to find out that the carmaker isn’t planning on offering a successor of it anytime soon. The announcement hasn’t been made in an official press release and it is part of a report published by Automotive News Europe, who have spoken to Mark Templin, the Lexus International executive vice president.
“We don’t have a plan for an LFA successor right now”, said Templin to our source. “When we started the LFA project, it wasn’t as expensive a car as it turned out to be. We started developing it, and it got better and better. We switched from steel to aluminum to carbon fiber. Everything kept changing. It became this real supercar”, added the company’s official.
As you probably know by now, the Lexus LFA has been in production between 2010 and 2012 and it was put together in Motomachi, Toyota City, Japan. The supercar was offered in a single body style, a two-door coupe, with a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The model stands at 4,505 mm in length, 1,895 mm in width and 1,220 mm in height and it is packing a 4.8 liter V10 engine, which is capable of producing no less than 560 HP (412 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 6-speed sequential transmission, allowing it to reach a top speed of approximately 325 km/h (202 mph).
