  • 2012 Lexus LFA

    Depending on who you ask, the Lexus LFA was either a remarkable achievement or a sales dud. Toyota spent a decade combing through its F1 program to take the best of its expertise and apply that knowledge to a road car. There's no denying the car is a technological marvel and an incredible machine. Its 4.8-liter V-10 engine cranks out 552 horsepower and 334 pound-feet of torque and screams to 9,000 rpm. The structure is carbon fiber, and that led to an astronomically high $375,000 sticker price. Perhaps that's the reason a handful of new examples remain unsold in the United States to this day...

    The Lexus LFA supercar was a long time coming; and when it appeared on the market in late 2010 as a performance icon for the Lexus brand—years later and far more expensive than originally intended—there was definitely a lot more to this model than chasing Ferrari and Lamborghini. The...

    Lexus Exec Hints at LFA Successor

    The Lexus LFA was only ever built for a single model year, and it’s likely the company lost money on each of the 500 examples it sold, despite the astronomical $375,000 price tag. But that doesn’t mean the project was a failure, as the halo effect it’s had on the rest of the Lexus...

    The Lexus LFA Gets Serviced Like A Le Mans Car

    The LFA isn’t your run-of-the-mill Lexus, so it should come as little surprise that when it’s due for a service, owners can’t simply roll up to their local Lexus dealership. While in the U.S. LFA owners are looked after by a handful of specialized dealerships, over in Europe Lexus...

  • 2014 Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA Code X race car

    Lexus has been competing in the gruelling Nürburgring 24 Hours endurance race with its LFA supercar since 2008, back when it was still a prototype, and even though production ceased in 2012 versions of the car are still being developed for motorsport use. The latest is the Lexus LFA Code X, which was developed together with Gazoo Racing and will compete in this year’s Nürburgring 24 Hours endurance race. As previously reported, the LFA Code X gets a 5.3-liter V-10, up from the 4.8-liter unit in the regular LFA. No output has been stated, but the engine’s peak power and...

  • The Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA runs up the hill at Goodwood

    If you’ve attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed in recent years, you’ve probably seen the Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA work its way up the hill. It would be easy to assume that Lexus was behind the car’s appearance, but that would be incorrect. In fact, Lexus has never “officially” appeared at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but that changes with the 2013 running of the event. Now a contributing manufacturer, the Japanese luxury brand will use the celebration of all things fast to help introduce its latest wares in the United Kingdom. Front and center will be the...

    As much as we’d like to see a direct successor for the Lexus LFA supercar, Toyota has no plans to build such a car. Despite costing an exorbitant $375,000, the LFA was a money-losing project and Toyota officials aren’t keen to repeat the process, at least for now. “At one time...
