Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen the Lexus LF-A in varying shapes and colors, drooling over these Japanese supercars every chance we find. All that time, however, the LF-A was nothing more than just a prototype because the production version wasn’t even being built yet.

All that changed on December 15th of last year when Lexus officially began production of the LF-A at the Motomachi production plant in Japan. A little over a month later, the first-ever production model – a bright orange version similar to the Nurburgring Package - of the LF-A was rolled out of the production block.

The work on the car is done by 170 people all of which have a specific role in the build of the Japanese supercar. Among them include specialists that only handle the carbon fiber components found in the car. In addition to that, the building of the LF-A and all the subsequent procedures done on each car are recorded and kept on journals, with each of these journals estimated to be 3,500 pages long.

We can’t blame Lexus for being this meticulous when it comes to building their maiden supercar. It took them a few years and a number of prototypes to get to this point, so we understand why they’re being very detail-oriented with the Lexus LF-A.

$375,000 a car will do that to you.

Hey, this one actually looks better than the promotional images that Lexus sent out for the LF-A. Certainly makes the car look more interesting now.

The new GTR will be a quicker car at 1/5th price. But this is more exclusive and sounds awesome! I bet the LF-A will be having a hard time with the new GT-R.

I think a BMW bumped into him? Nothing to do with unintended acceleration, Have some decency you imbecile.

digg that chip, this is something new, too much moods will surely over kill this one, I wish i could see the LF-A taken over the Audi R8 and Nissan GT-R. this is a great match and that’s for sure.

it looks great but not that great, still many are in favor for the Nissan GT-R with $88,000.00 price tag, i can get a lot of moods for my GT-R that can definitely outrun the LF-A or even the Famous Bugatti Veyron.
