2012 Lexus LFA

Can You Overdose On One Day With An LFA? Medical dictionaries define a drug as "any article intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of humans." The 2012 Lexus LFA is not a supercar, it is a narcotic. Twist the carbon-fiber key of the Lexus flagship and listen to its race-bred V10 wail. Within seconds of the sound reaching the eardrum, the adrenal glands initialize epinephrine production and endorphins are released from the pituitary.

    SEMA: Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition pops up at SEMA
    1351723200

    Lexus has brought along a LFA Nürburgring Edition to its SEMA booth this year, apparently for no better reasons than to (a) show us the car in color other than the orange we saw for its Geneva debut and (b) let show-goers take turns running the car on a dynamometer. We'll admit, that last part is pretty good... we're waiting for the crowds to die ...

    Lexus pitches hydrogen-powered LFA supercar in video
    1330995660

    It looks like Toyota's Lexus luxury arm is getting ready to pitch a hydrogen-powered version of its LFA supercar that's even more powerful than its 552-horsepower, gas-powered brethren. We spotted a 45-second video that appears to show off the Lexus LFA-h, a hydrogen-powered version fitted with a V10 that can produce 600 horsepower, not to mention ...

    Chicago: Lexus plays us like a fiddle with its LFA quartet
    1328832060

    Last we checked, there were fewer than 90 Lexus LFA models in the United States. So imagine our surprise to find not one, not two, but four of the automaker's carbon-fiber exotics parked under the lights in the Lexus booth at the Chicago Auto Show. Normally, when four of the same models occupy the same stage it's hardly news. However, this quartet of ...

    Official: LF-LC concept proves Lexus can do sexy sports coupes

    The Lexus LF-LC concept has been leaking on the Internet longer than most Detroit-bound reveals, but that doesn't make the 2+2 coupe any less stunning. The concept clearly shows the design progression that started with the CT 200h and made real strides with the 2013 GS.

    Rumormill: Toyota coupe range expanding with Supra successor, CT200h coupe, LFA Tokyo edition
    1316460600

    Toyota was once an automaker known for its two-door sportscars and coupes. There was the Celica. There was the Supra. There was the Lexus SC. But while those have all long since departed, the Japanese auto giant is clawing its way back to the territory it once owned. The Lexus LFA is one heck of a first salvo, and the FT-86 is around the corner. There's ...

    It takes a while to get around the Nürburgring Nordschleife – around seven minutes in even the fastest of machinery with the best driver behind the wheel. But apparently it takes even longer to get around to releasing a special edition Nürburgring package that makes your go-fast supercar even more track-friendly. We're talking, of ...

    Typically, when an automaker launches a new car, or even a variant on an existing one, we get a chance to see it up close at a major auto show within a matter of months at most. But it will have been the better part of a year by the time we see the Lexus LFA with the Nürburgring package in the flesh. The track-focused version of the Toyota luxury ...
