Production Lexus LF-A supercar in the works
Swooned when Lexus debuted its LF-A supercar as a concept in Detroit last year? So did Toyota, apparently. The Formula One-inspired supercar, capable of topping out at 200 mph, has evidently received the golden stamp of approval from Toyota, putting its release around fall of 2008. With the Acura NSX set to debut in 2009 with a V10, it's likely we'll see something close to the front-mounted 5.0L V10 seen sitting in the concept, despite F1's move to V8s.
The sticker shock shouldn't be too bad either at around $170K, at least when compared to cars exhibiting similar performance envelopes.
