In the realm of exotic supercars, the 2012 Lexus LFA stands as a testament to precision engineering and refined performance. This particular LFA, with only 68 miles on the odometer, is a rare gem, being number 270 of the mere 500 produced. Even more exclusive, it is one of just 38 models finished in the striking Absolutely Red color.
The heart of this automotive marvel is a 4.8L DOHC V-10 engine, delivering an exhilarating 552 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. This formidable power plant is paired with a 6-speed automated sequential gearbox with paddle shifters, allowing for a seamless and responsive driving experience. The LFA’s acceleration is breathtaking, capable of propelling from zero to 60 MPH in a mere 3.6 seconds, with a top speed of 202 MPH.
Lexus’s commitment to innovation and cutting-edge technology is evident in the LFA’s construction. The monocoque body is predominantly crafted from carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP), offering a weight-saving advantage over traditional materials without compromising on strength or rigidity. This design choice reflects Lexus’s dedication to achieving the perfect balance between lightweight construction and structural integrity.
Attention to detail extends to the LFA’s braking system, equipped with Brembo carbon-ceramic disc brakes, adorned with striking yellow calipers. These high-performance brakes ensure that the LFA’s considerable power is matched by equally impressive stopping capabilities.
The interior of this LFA is as luxurious as its exterior is bold, featuring a black and red leather finish complemented by carbon fiber trim. The cabin is fitted with 10-way power seats with heaters, an LCD combination meter, a premium Mark Levinson sound system, and Bluetooth connectivity, blending luxury with technology.
