At the Detroit Auto Show Lexus unveiled the LF-A Roadster Concept, even if everyone was waiting for the long-anticipated LF-A supercar. If put into production the LF-A Roadster will compete with the M6 convertible.

The production Lexus LF-A is set to arrive in 2010 priced at over $200,000. We remember speaking to the PR at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show and they said that if the roadster was received favorably in Detroit and other auto shows throughout this season, Toyota may consider it putting it into production. But this won’t happened until after the coupe version debut.

The LF-A Roadster is powered by a high-revving V10 engine that approaches 5.0 liters in displacement. The V10, capable of more than 500 horsepower and test-track speeds greater than 200 mph, is mounted in front of the passenger compartment but behind the front-axle centerline in what the LF-A’s engineers refer to as a "front-mid" configuration.
