TopSpeed Rendering: 2013 Lexus LF-A II

Lexus LF-A II

A few days ago, some rumors about a second generation Lexus LF-A started to circulate on the internet. It could have been a passing whisper and it would have been all we needed to start dreaming about what this mode would look like. The rendering above is what we came up with.

Let’s face facts, the Lexus LF-A doesn’t exactly need any major changes, so it will pick up where the Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Package left off in terms of style and sport. Lexus will not be making any significant changes to the LFA, but we may see a new headlamps design, larger air intakes, a more discrete rear spoiler, and a slimmer profile.

In terms of power, the current V10 engine will be tricked to deliver more than 562 HP in order to significantly improve the car’s performance. This will mean that it could complete the 0-60 mph sprint in less than 3.7 seconds. Top speed should also exceed the Nurburgring model’s 210 mph.

If the Lexus LFA II makes it to production, it will probably come out sometime in 2013 and will be offered as an expensive, limited edition.

Think of it this way: The GT-R is the car you take to the prom; the LFA is the car you take to the reunion.

What was the difference between genuine and practical? I mean, doesn’t it sounded too far from each other? I hope I can get better opinions on these two sportscars.

We all knew that Japanese has higher standards in terms of operations and configuration. However, we can able see that other countries also practiced the same. I am not against with other countries but Japanese has mastered the technology.

The production version of this car is quite good. However, its kind of disappointing that its speed is still limited. I hope to see it removed on the rendered version but I think its impossible for they already set a figure performance of the car.

I guess, a lot of dealer is waiting for the rendered version of this car! Admittedly, I was impressed with the performance of the car and it makes me wonder on how it will perform in the track!

Well, since this one is still very much a rendering, we still can’s say how it would actually be able to perform with other cars . But it does look promising.

Well, considering that this one is supposedly the successor of the LF-A, I am not really that surprised that they will be using a lot of elements from the first car. But I would agree that they still need to make this one more unique.

I would agree that you did a pretty job on this one. I like the way that the whole car looks on this one. But we probably need to wait for a few more months for the grand launch.

If this is true, well its not that unique for a Lexus LF-A. It still looks the same as the original one but I think they upgrade the performance which makes it more cool.

i like the LFA because of all of the little engineering tricks slipped into its engine. Just like the revving and how its a v10 with the diaphram of a v8 and as light as a v6

If this rendering is correct, it seems that there is really nothing that much changed from the first LF-A to this. But nonetheless, this one is still starting to look like one heck of a car.

Im glad that Lexus come-up with this kind of supercar. They did a very simple but elegant design of this LFA car. Anyone will love to drive a car like this. However, i wish they had other color than this orange one. Other than that, they totally did a great jo

Well, I think the LFA is a genuine supercar and the GTR is a practical supercar. Anyhow, I do hope that the LFA would improves it front hood and I think this car needs a mid engine for better grip.

Well, I pity the Japanese car haters! IMO, they have an impressive engine and their sounding is good.

I really like on how Lexus try to improve the LF-A model.

I was thinking before that if they have a sort of problem in building a high boosting car but with the figure performance of this car I think this is just a proof that they are improving.

One thing I know that is GT-R’s official result is not it’s real potential result, Nissan has set plenty of limitation on GT-R. (not sure for this, but anyway, GT-R still my dream car, LOL)

@kaideathman

That depends on how you define the term "fast." Yes, the GT-R is faster than the LFA in terms of 0-60, but the LFA is much faster in every other category. When comparing the Nurburgring Edition LFA to the 2012 GT-R, the LFA is faster in a slalom (76.2 mph v 74.0 mph), the skidpad (1.12g v 1.04g), has a higher top speed (210 mph v 193 mph), brakes faster from 60 mph (94 ft v 104 ft), and most importantly, it beats the GT-R on the Nurburgring (7:13 v 7:24), even though the GT-R achieved its time on a closed circuit while the LFA ran in light traffic.

The LFA may be almost five times the price of a GT-R, but considering its advantages in performance, quality, exclusivity and investment value, its more than five times the car.

Additional note: no other production car currently available for sale can beat the LFA in a slalom, skidpad, 60-0 braking, or on the Nurburgring, which, coincidentally, are the same four records that the Supra held when it was new.

@LeMoNNaDeS Then that is depends on your definition of super cars. Every is different on that. For me, super cars to be super is because of their super perfomance, if a supercar can’t go as fast as what it is priced(LF-A’s price = Ferrari’s, Lambo’s), then it is not worth it. However, I still agree your opinion that luxury, liability, and exclusiveness of a Lexus is better, LOL...

Very true, the GT-R is much cheaper. But you dont get the luxury, liability, and exclusiveness of a Lexus in a Nissan. I for one would take a LF-A over a lambo if i had to. The exhaust sound is good enough for me.

seriously, why buy LF-A?
Trice the price(if not mistaken) of GT-R but not as fast as it...
