Most reports suggest the car will feature a 5.0L V10 engine with at least 500hp, although there are suggestions a hybrid V8 variant will also be offered. The car’s body and interior will also feature extensive use of carbon-fiber as revealed in the spy images below and this is expected to push the cost of the LF-A into the supercar realm.
Speaking with Edmunds, Lexus corporate product planning manager Ben Mitchell confirmed the price of the car would “begin with a two.” An inside source has also stated that the final price is likely to be closer to $225,000. A planed convertible roadster will most certainly cost even more.
At this price level, the LF-A will be up against supercars like the Ferrari F430 - listed at $211,525 - however its availability will likely be much higher than the Italian exotic, which can command waiting lists of several years in some markets.
