Tokyo— Lexus announces today the official launch of the LFA, a two-seat supercar scheduled to go into production at the end of 2010 as the pinnacle of the Lexus “F” premium sports car series.


Ultra-responsive and extremely stable even when taken to the edge, the LFA creates a sense of reassurance that opens up a range of driving emotions – from exhilaration to control.

The LFA combines high output, superb chassis design and meticulous aerodynamics to achieve instantaneous total-vehicle response characterized by high-rev, seamless acceleration echoed by a self-defining resonance from its 4.8-litre V10.

Only 500 units of the LFA are to be produced and sold worldwide.
