Lexus LF-A

This is not exactly 100% new – in fact it a concept with the same name and the same general direction was first shown in 2005 and production models of it have been spotted on the Nurburging. A concept will the same name will be displayed at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show next week in updated form so here is a short refresher course.

The Lexus LF-A Concept is a 2-seater sports car – or a super car if you like – that is supposed to be powered by a 5.0 litre V10 engine, likely the 2UR-GSE that made it’s debut in the Lexus IS-F. However, the one to go into the production LF-A might be one in a totally different state of tune considering the 9,000rpm redline of the LF-A Concept as seen in the dash photos after the jump, compared to the IS-F’s 7,000rpm redline.

The car’s body is made of light but sturdy carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), so this is not merely a two-door version of the IS-F. Comparing the photos of the 2005 LF-A concept and the one that will be displayed at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, it appears that Lexus has revised the LF-A Concept, with the interior looking noticeably different.

Check out photos of the updated LF-A Concept after the jump.
