The day has finally come and right on schedule. Almost two years ago Lexus’ LFA supercar went into production at Toyota’s Motomachi plant in Japan. Lexus announced at the beginning of production that there would be only 500 cars, each assembled one per day until December, 2012.
Fast forward to today, it’s December, 2012 and the LFA’s production has been completed with number 500 being a white LFA Nürburgring Package with a sleek numbered plaque.
The LFA sports a 4.8-liter V-10 engine with 552 hp. Put into action on the Nürburgring, it obtained an impressive time of 7:14.64. The car is claimed to be one of the most exclusive, fastest-revving and best sounding production cars. The LFA is comprised of close to 65 percent Formula One-grade carbon fiber, helping to reduce its overall weight.
There has been no talk of a successor, but there have been reports of LFA prototype sightings at the Nürburgring.
