A successor to the Lexus LF-A has been in the pipeline for quite some time now and while it remains unclear on when the supercar will be launched, Japanese magazine Best Car continues to stress that Lexus will have some help in building the successor to the LF-A. That help, apparently, will come from BMW . This rumor has been brewing for some time now, but if you really think about it, it’s hard to make any sense of it because Lexus and BMW aren’t exactly bosom buddies. Sure, there’s a healthy amount of respect for the other brand, but at their core, the two consider the other as rivals.
Why would BMW help Lexus develop the new LF-A when it could compete directly with the i8 ? It just doesn’t make sense considering the lengths Lexus has taken in the past year to line up car after car to compete against German brands like BMW.
Maybe Best Car knows something that none of us do, which could explain why the magazine appears to be insisting that a BMW-Lexus collaboration is in the works. But call us skeptical on this rumor because we just don’t see the sense behind it.
