Lexus working on a new halo model to replace the LFA supercar

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 8, 2013

Lexus LFA remains one of the most interesting supercars out there, but it appears that the Japanese carmaker is already planning a successor. According to a Lexus engineer, a new Japanese supercar that will replace the LFA will be based on the LF-LC Concept, that was unveiled back in 2012 at the Detroit Auto Show.

Haruhiko Tanahashi a.k.a. the engineer who masterminded the LFA, hinted that a new Lexus halo model is already being developed. In a recent interview with Autocar, Tanahashi said that he has high expectation from the car that will be launched. Moreover, he is hoping that Lexus will build the LF-LC as most of the Lexus concept cars have been turned into production cars.

If built, the new supercar will be available at a lower price than the LFA and will sit above the RC Coupe. Lexus’ international boss, Mark Templin, also confirmed the new halo sports car but also a new lineup of F-badged models that will come sooner. At the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, Lexus will debut the RC F Coupe, that uses a 5.0-liter V8 engine. A GS F is also expected.
