Lexus LFA Supercar Production Ends

The last Lexus LFA supercar has rolled off the production line at the Motomachi Plant in Toyota City, Japan, on 14 December.

Lexus started the LFA production on December 15, 2010, with a team of around 170 hand-picked takumi workers, who were involved in parts manufacturing, vehicle assembly and painting. The LFA was produced at the rate of just one car per day and just 500 examples were built during that period.

LFA chief engineer, Haruhiko Tanahashi said, ‘I’ve lived and breathed supercars for the past decade. Specifically one supercar, LFA. Very few people have the opportunity we had to create a world-class supercar from a blank sheet of paper.’

The last LFA is a white car with the Nürburgring Package powered by a 562bhp 4.8 litre V10 (+10 compared to the standard model), enabling it to reach 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 202mph.

In UK the LFA was priced from £345,000 and just five examples have been delivered here.

The LFA engineering knowledge will directly influence new Lexus products and the knowledge of carbon fibre components will be applied to future Lexus vehicles as well.
