Its front mid-engine placement, along with a rear-mounted transaxle and rear-mounted radiators, should allow for excellent weight distribution. Lexus has billed the concept LF-A as having a top speed in excess of 200mph, and we have no reason to doubt the production version will reach these limits if it’s sold unrestricted.
It’s a good sign to see the LF-A being tested at the Nurburgring and we hope the marketing execs don’t soften what could be an amazing car. BMW and Mercedes are both expected to release new super-coupes in the future so the fight among the premium car manufacturers is really hotting up. We can’t wait.
