Lexus working on a new supercar

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 12, 2012

Lexus is currently developing an LFA II, according to a senior Toyota executive who asked to remain anonymous. Its predecessor, the Lexus LFA, became very successful despite having a price tag of $375,000. Many criticized the LFA because its cost appeared to be highly excessive when compared to its rivals.

For example, a Ferrari 458 Italia costs $225,000 while the Nissan GT-R is priced at $90,000. But the 500 units of the LFA, Japan’s first ever supercar, sold quickly as buyers had paid for its exclusivity too. It’s believed that the LFA II would be even more outstanding when it comes to performance. It would also cost much higher.

A source said that this new supercar is twice the car with a performance level that’s much higher. It’s expected to be priced with a range of $800,000 to $1,000,000. Only 100 units of the LFA will be made, making it even more exclusive and more appealing.
