Lexus LFA

As you may know already, Lexus finally launched the LFA supercar at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show and made quite a buzz. What we are going to tell you now is even more interesting: a more extreme version of the LFA will be built by Lexus by the end od 2012, when the production of the 500 units will be finished. The powerful version will resemble the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series, which means that will be less comfortable but it will deliver better performances on the racing track. For those who don’t know, the LFA carries a V10 engine capable to deliver 560 hp at 8700 rpm and 480 Nm of torque from 3700 to 9000 rpm. With these numbers the car can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) I 3.7 seconds while the top speed achieved is 325 km/h (202 mph). Even the price is extreme: € 375,000 on the European market and $375,000 in the United States.
