Lexus LF-A supercar confirmed for Tokyo
Now, we’re talking.
The lack of a European presence at the Tokyo Motor Show has left the field virtually devoid of supercars. But not we’ve just heard that, at long last, at least one supercar will be in attendance.
The V10-powered Lexus LF-A.
In addition to the LF-A, Lexus will also showcase to the Japanese market the debut of the LF-Ch compact-premium hybrid.
But the real news here is the highly-anticipated debut of the new Lexus
supercar. Expected to be in the same class as notable new supercars like the Ferrari 458 Italia, the LF-A comes with a 4.8-liter V10 engine that delivers over 550 horsepower shifted via a 6-speed semi-automatic transmission that, in turn, allows the super car to hit speeds of over 218 mph.
Only 500 units will be made of the LF-A and we can now fully expect without a tinge of hesitation to see one of them in Tokyo. Lexus has yet to release further news about the car but nevertheless, the company’s confirmation that the supercar will be in attendance at the Tokyo Motor Show is as good a news as it can get.
