Lexus has announced that there will only be 150 examples of their LF-A super car to be sold here in the U.S. So you can imagine how much of a sight it would be to run across one in the flesh. However the Japanese automaker was making things a little easier when they brought the brand new 500+ HP purpose built luxury speed machine to Cars and Coffee, a Saturday morning gathering in Irvine, California where hundreds of automotive enthusiasts congregate to kick tires and have a cup of their favorite brew. When the matte black LF-A showed up it acted like a super magnet attracting almost everyone in attendance.
The LF-A is powered by a 4.8 liter V10 that delivers a maximum output of 560 HP at 9,000 RPM and a peak torque of 354 lb-ft at 6,800 RPM, with 90% of the total torque being available between the 3,700 RPM mark and the super car’s 9,000 RPM red line. As a result of such a road torque curve, the LF-A can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds and won’t stop until it reaches a top speed of 202 MPH.
