Description[edit | edit source]
"An ultra high-tech sportscar bringing stable quality to cutting-edge technology."
20 years before Japan's automotive industry was truly recognized by the world, Toyota created a sports car called the 2000GT, which brought together the newest technology of the 1960s. And today in the 21st century, Toyota has again created a cutting edge sports car: the LFA.
Its development was not easy, having to start from the establishment of production techniques for the carbon fiber body. For Toyota it was not enough to make components match and fit together manually by hand; it was a challenge of their pride as a mass production manufacturer, to provide the newest technology with absolutely stable quality.
One of the most important factors of a sports car, the front to rear weight distribution, is 48 to 52. The transaxle layout and the radiator mounted in the rear helped to achieve this figure. The vehicle weight was suppressed to 1,480 kg (3,300 lb). And the development team put even more emphasis on lowering the center of gravity, utilizing a dry-sump lubrication system for the V10 engine, and going as far as to position the driveshaft a bit higher by adding a reduction gear, so that the entire mounting of the powertrain could be made lower.
The 4.8-liter V10 has a bank angle of 72 degrees, and it redlines at 9,500 rpm. The 552 BHP power equates to 115 BHP per liter, but its high performance is still environmentally friendly. The transmission utilizes a 6-speed 2-pedal MT, which shifts at 0.2 seconds, on par with the world's top racing machines.
The brakes are standard carbon ceramic disks, with 6-pot calipers in the front and 4-pot calipers in the rear, all with varying piston sizes.
0-62 mph acceleration is just 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 201 mph (323 km/h), and production of the LFA is limited to only 500 units.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- When fitted with a racing air filter, the LFA sounds identical to a Pagani Zonda R
- This is among few road cars that cannot be fitted with aerodynamic modifications in GT Auto
- The active spoiler rises at 58 mph (92 kph)
- In Gran Turismo Sport, a photo of this car can be seen in Lexus's Museum in Brand Central. However, the car itself does not appear as a playable vehicle in said game.
