We don’t meant to be racist o anything, but we think that the Japanese are people of tremendous resilience. Lexus’ first ever super car – the Lexus LF-A sports coupe, might have caught everyone’s imagination – such as Kyle Busch – with its light V10 which revs like a motorbike and staggering price tag, but few people remember the first concept was shown back in 2005.
Let’s take a look at the history of Lexus LF-A sports coupe, shall we? Back then, aluminum as used as a light-weight material for the chassis and body, but times have changed and they were forced to ditch it for carbon fiber.
While the name being used in the interim might suggest a completely new successor for the Lexus LF-A sports coupe, rumor has it that a Lexus LF-A II – as it’s internally known – is being developed as a variant of the existing model. Not a lot of details known at the moment, but some say the Lexus LF-A II as the next-generation of the Lexus LF-A sports coupe will be pushed even further than before, with the most significant change being the power that is delivered.
The Lexus LF-A sports coupe model will reportedly take the price of the Lexus LF-A II way over that of the current model, and you can be certain production will be very limited to preserve an air of exclusivity and Toyota’s money, because the model reportedly already costs more to make than its worth.
Just for imagining the Lexus LF-A II, the current Lexus LF-A sports coupe is powered by a 4.8-liter V10 which able to deliver around 550 horsepower. We predict and we are quite sure that the next generation of the Lexus LF-A sports coupe might bravely challenge the Pagani and Lamborghini.
