Make/Model: LFA supercar
Lexus has brought a prototype of its much-anticipated LFA supercar to the Tokyo Motor Show, four years after first presenting the vehicle at the 2005 Detroit Auto Show.
The LFA will reside atop the brand's "F" premium sports car series, and they will produce and sell just 500 units worldwide. The sticker price: $375,000.
According to Lexus, the 2011 LFA will go into production at the end of 2010. The 2-seater's 4.8-liter V10 engine helps it reach 62 mph in a staggering 3.7 seconds and achieve a top speed of 202 mph.
And so ….
Officials at Honda are claiming the days of the V10 supercar are over; Lexus clearly thinks otherwise.
