It’s reported that the Lexus LFA Supercar is now almost sold out. So will we soon see the Lexus LFA Roadster?
The Lexus LFA seemed like a barking mad project for Toyota to take on. A Lexus hypercar with lots of carbon fibre, a bonkers V10 and a price tag to make even the very wealthy car buyer wince – £336,000.
But despite all that – and a gestation period that reached a decade – the Lexus LFA seems to have been a success, with just ten of the original 500 cars left unsold. So if you want a Lexus LFA you’d better be quick before they’re all gone. But there could be an alternative.
It seems that the plans for the LFA Roadster are to make it a production car with no limits – in other words Lexus will produce as many as they can sell – but with prices likely to be around £400k, and no guarantee of exclusivity beyond that of price, the LFA Roadster could be a much harder sell than the LFA Coupe.
Lexus say that ‘…there are no plans for a replacement [for the LFA]‘, but that could easily be PR-speak for ‘we’re not making a new LFA, but derivatives don’t count’.
Because not only do we think the LFA Roadster is a given, there seem to be plans for an LFA Hybrid too.
