2012 Lexus LFA
2012 Lexus LFA
The ultraexotic LFA is something very different from Lexus. Its engine is a purpose-built 552-hp V-10 that weighs no more than a V-6. Its unibody structure is made of carbon fiber. To achieve optimal (48/52 percent front/rear) weight distribution, the six-speed, paddleshifted gearbox is a rear-mounted transaxle, and the radiators are located at the rear as well. The free-revving V-10 (9000-rpm redline) spins out 552 hp, giving the LFA a 3.6-second 0-to-60-mph time and a 202-mph top speed. This engine needs to rev, however, to deliver the goods. Naturally, carbon-ceramic brakes are standard. As you'd expect in a Lexus, the interior materials are first-class. Attention to detail is impressive: the steering wheel has a carbon-fiber upper rim and an aluminum lower to aid self-centering, the downshift paddle requires more effort than the upshift paddle, and the reconfigurable LCD gauges mimic the look of analog units. What you might not expect from Lexus is just how communicative the controls are. Nor is the LFA's wild-child styling -- with its signature triple exhaust outlet -- anything like the Lexus norm. The purchase procedure, though, has become slightly more normal. When the car was first announced, Lexus screened would-be buyers, hoping to select "leaders in the community" and, more important, weed out speculators. The interview screening is now gone, and Lexus is offering a twenty-four-month lease or purchase, but buyers are still obligated to offer the original selling dealer a right of first refusal to buy if they decide to sell within two years.
