2011 Lexus LF-A Officially Revealed

Way back in 2007, the first sighting of the upcoming Lexus LF-A supercar occurred. Finally, Lexus has officially revealed the production version of this beast, complete with full specs. This is a full-fledge, no-nonsense supercar, with the specs and price tag to prove it. Coming in at a whopping $375,000, the 2011 Lexus LF-A will find homes in just 500 garages. Toyota is keeping production exceedingly tight on this vehicle – probably not a bad decision, since this is their first attempt at a supercar.

2011 Lexus LF-A Specs

  • 552 HP 4.8 liter V10
  • 354 lb-ft of torque
  • Rear wheel drive
  • Six speed sequential transmission
  • 0-62 in 3.7 seconds
  • 202 MPH top speed
  • Curb weight: 3263 lbs

There’s not much else to say – the LF-A has the potential to be a fantastic machine. The only real question is – how does it drive? If it drives like a Lexus, then Toyota failed miserably. However, if it drives like a Ferrari but with Lexus reliability, then this is a huge win, even though Toyota is expected to lose money on each sale.
