2012 Lexus LFA Supercar Starts At $375,000 In December

The all-new 2012 Lexus LFA supercar powered by a new high-revving 552 horsepower 4.8-liter V10 engine has an MSRP of $375,000 (excluding delivery, processing and handling fee). The engine is mated to a six-speed Automated Sequential Gearbox with paddle shifters that enables ultra-quick gear shifts of 0.2 seconds with four driving modes – AUTO, SPORT, NORMAL and WET.

The LFA Lexus performance flagship for the F portfolio accelerates from 0 to 60 in 3.6 seconds and achieves a maximum speed of 202 mph thanks to an independently controlled throttle body for each cylinder, high-volume 12-hole injectors, dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence, low-friction engine components, and equal length exhaust manifolds. All LFAs will be hand-built to customer specifications with production beginning in December 2010. (LFA pictured above at 2010 New York Auto Show)
