Lexus LF-A

No signs of the Honda NSX anywhere but that other Japanese supercar project seems to be still going strong. The Lexus LF-A Prototype will enter the 24-hour Nurburgring race set to be held during the 21st to 24th May 2009. It will be the 2nd time in a row the prototype car will be running the race.

The Lexus LF-A Prototype race car will be run by GAZOO Racing in the Division 2 SP8 (engine close to production) class. The LF-A measures 4,530mm long, 1,880mm wide and 1,200mm tall with a wheelbase of 2,605mm. It runs 305/30R20 Bridgestone rubber.

Mounted at the rear and mated to a mid-rear transaxle gearbox be a 4,805cc V10 engine said to be producing over 500 PS.
