People who have been waiting for Toyota to release a roadster version of the Lexus LF-A supercar should temper their expectations because the company has made it clear that the Lexus LF-A Roadster won’t be released now or anytime soon.
Pity, considering the LF-A is one of those supercars that people can’t seem to get enough of with the supercar’s initial 500-piece release getting scooped up in a matter of weeks. Despite being shown as a concept a number of years ago with favorable responses indicating a massive amount of interest from the public, the LF-A Roadster is still a few years – if it ever makes it that far – from seeing the light of the production line. For now, the Toyota-owned company will instead turn their attention towards further developing their already sizzling supercar, the coupe LF-A and the special edition Nurburgring Edition .
The Lexus LF-A is powered by a 4.8 liter V10 engine that delivers a maximum output of 560 HP at 9,000 RPM and a peak torque of 354 lb-ft at 6,800 RPM, with 90% of the total torque being available between the 3,700 RPM mark and the super car’s 9,000 RPM red line. As a result of such a road torque curve, the LF-A can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds and won’t stop until it reaches a top speed of 202 MPH.
