The last Lexus LFA has rolled off its production line, ending the 500-unit run of the Japanese brand’s epic $700,000 supercar.
Lexus had been building the LFA at a rate of 20 per month since December 2010, with a Nurburgring Package version joining from January 2012.
The Lexus LFA is powered by a 4.8-litre V10 that produces 412kW of power, 480Nm of torque, and screams to 9000rpm as it races to 100km/h from standstill in 3.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 325km/h.
Lexus says the manufacturing processes it learnt for the carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) used for the LFA won’t go to waste.
That suggests we may see CFRP employed to some degree on the production version of the company’s LF-LC sports car concept that is anticipated to get a green light for showrooms in the near future.
It’s guaranteed to be more affordable than the LFA that was more expensive than most Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
