i just wathed panser (bonnet/hood) on MAX where fredric asboe challanged henning solberg to a set a laptime around Vaalerbanen

fredric was driving the LFA while henning was driving the SL65 AMG Black series

the LFA won despite power/torque disadvantage with a time of 1:44, while the SL65 lost due to its weight disadvantage with a time of 1:50

keep in mind that the SL65 black has 670hp and 1000NM of torque vs 560hp and 480NM of torque

@fangio man

Yes, there was made a one-off spyder, however I was very surprised when I went on Lexusenthusiast and discovered that they've made a second yellow one

R8 have much longer gears.

BR2+  4y ago

I also think that was a crap test, This is SLIGHTLY slower then an R8 V10 in the 1/4, But pulls HARD after, so I don't see why its 0-300Kph time would be...11s slower, It does have little torquethough, but still, And its 0-150Mph times supports that, id guess a high to mide 30s range given the wing doesn't pop up, if so id say it would be about 5s slower, just depends. Car&Driver had some really fantastic times for this car against e 599 HGTE, the best test, so I call that 0-300Kph time just crap.

@karthick01

my theory here is:
-the wing (cd=0.39)
-weight (weights more than the F50 with much of the same power and numbers)
-gear ratios

Did not they plan to build an LFA Spyder? If I am correct they already built a prototype or something. What happened to this project?

it took toyota 15 days to make the carbonfibre monocoque in-house, 3 days to assemble the car, 2.5 days to assemble the engine + half a day of testing and 7 days of final inspection

@Obvious Troll

I didn't agree with you.

Overpriced everyone can agree with you, Japanese pos, only an ignorant fool would think that regardless of price.

About the development costs:

500 X 375.000 € (LFA) = 187.500.000 € + 22.250.000 € (NE) = 209.750.000 € (+/-) ?

If the production compensates the development that could really be correct... :D

@mental

same here, i weren't interested in lexus either and i don't know why i cought such a intrest in the LFA, but now with the F-sport marque and setting BMW as their goal it is quite interesting to see how it goes (remember hyundai went from nothing in the 90s to interesting in the later years, much due to improvement in quality and design)

i think i like the LFA because there is something european about it, a high reving N/A V10 with CF chassis and no care of the selling price is very much like the european car manufactures when they build a halo car


User avatar

lafars  4y ago

@troll

there are a numbers of factors contributing to the price:
-matrial (carbon isn't cheap)
development (longer development=more money into the project)
-not taking any shortcuts (they could've turbocharged the engine, but they went for N/A)
-limited numbers produced
-not sharing anything with any other car (except for the multi-media interface)
-bespoke engine
-development and dropping of DCT

I personally consider this car as a technical prodigy, a design masterpiece. It is not just an "overpriced Toyota", this car is absolutely unique. LFA is, without any doubt, one of the best cars ever come from Japan. But I, unfortunately, have to admit LFA is incredibly overpriced judging from its performance. For that money I would rather take Aventador / F12berlinetta / MP4-12C / 991 GT3 together with manual-tranny Cayman. But still, I'm glad LFA actually exists - that's a good lesson for Japanese autoindustry.

I'm sure people hate on LFA simply because the "Lexus" badge on it. Silly stereotype. But again, this is no another glorified Toyota; LFA is extraordinary. You should have respected this car at least for its truly magnificent, glorious V10 sound.

I personally did not really care about Lexus in past years. Just like you, I thought it was nothing more but a bit more luxurious Toyota. And their design-language was absolutely booooring. But all that was until LFA was presented. In my eyes Lexus momently become a worthy impressive automaker, since I saw they can make something as schick-modern as LFA. And now even the rest of their model range is becoming impressive that before used to be boring! And their modern concepts: I honestly consider LF-CC is one of the most elegant looking cars ever made. And who knows what the future will bring us? I sincerely hope an LFA's successor! :D

It's not that bad. But compared to any other sportscar is just one of the worst and for that price?!
The Japanese wanted to see their skills the creation of a sports car. Turned out that they can't make sports cars. In fact, They go all weak.

@troll, if you were clever you would notice the. Jpg at the end of the link, which means it directs you to a picture not Lexusenthusiast ( or you could've clicked the link and find out that the words were not said by anyone on Lexusenthusiast)

Why you failed at making anyone mad

lafars did it really have to be from a site that starts with lexus + enthusiast ? haha dude you're trying way too hard

the lfa failed big time and toyota is back to manufacturing corollas and the rest of the ugly of the ugliest cars slowly combining outdated lfa tech in to their ugly cars

overpriced ugly lexus has no place in the world of high performance cars

@lafars you are wrong. I'm not "Sulphur". I always thinking that Japanese can't make real sportscars.

i can refrence that EVO magazine mentioned the LFA as a good competitor to the F12

http://lexusenthusiast.com/images/weblog/12-08-22-lexus-lfa-vs-ferrari-berlinetta-evo-magazine.jpg

and it could hold itself against the aventador in CAR magazine (scans on germancarforum), and as you've said power isn't everything
