After officially seeing the new Toyota super car unveiled last week at the Tokyo Motor Show, the good news about the upcoming Lexus LF-A just keeps getting better and better. For those owners that feel a limited production half a million dollar LF-A just isn’t exclusive or hardcore enough, the Japanese automaker is also planning to come out with a track version of their V10 powered rocket ship.

The track version will be a more intense version of the LF-A complete with a "harder, track-tuned trim", however no changes will made to the new car’s engine and drive train. "The LFA is such a bespoke machine that buyers can specify pretty much what they want," said a source inside the Japanese luxury automaker. "If they choose to ask for it to be stripped out and built with track use in mind, there’s no reason why it won’t be possible." It is just that sort of tailored fit that continues to impress us about the new Lexus LF-A.

The new super car is powered by a 4.8 liter V10 that delivers a maximum output of 560 HP at rather lofty 9,000 RPM and a peak torque of 354 lb-ft at 6,800 RPM. The intense surge of power allows the LF-A to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds and reach a Lamborghini like top speed of 202 MPH.
