The Japanese luxury automaker Lexus recently debuted their LF-A super car to the world at the Tokyo Motor Show so by the time the new 552 HP V10 powered sports car arrived at SEMA it would seem that the Lexus LF-A was old news, but don’t say that to the hoards of tuning enthusiasts who crowded around this limited edition high performance machine snapping photos and admiring everything from the flat black super car’s bodylines to the carbon fiber accented interior.

Although we weren’t so sure about the guy in the black Toyota shirt that was telling us about how the Porsche GT2 style vent in between the hood and front bumper provides additional cooling to the intercooler, we would have bought that the high revving 4.8 Liter V10 was just so hot that it needed the extra airflow to keep the temperature needles out of the red, especially because we missed the memo on the LF-A being a turbo model. Either way the new super car is a beauty up close, or those who will be fortunate enough to see one of the 500 examples up close will definitely not be disappointed.
