2012 Lexus LFA – Pricey, Exotic Sports Car

First Look:

Seeing at the price of the 2012 Lexus LFA the only thing that we can say is that the car better be just incredible to fetch some customers from the market or else it will be a disaster. The reason why we are saying so is because the 2012 Lexus LFA will be entering the exotic sports car segment of international auto market, and this is the segment that features nothing but the best offering form auto makers all over the world. So considering the fact that the Lexus LFA will be rivaling the models from the marque’s that have decades of experience in the exotic car making, unless the LFA is not pretty incredible, there’s no chance its buyer will spend any single of their hard earned money on it.

And Yes, the 2012 Lexus LFA is rather incredible. We were immensely happy to see that Lexus has not pretended to manufacture an exotic sports car, the 2012 Lexus LFA actually is one of the ultimate sports cars ever entered the market.

The LFA comes loaded with every thing that it takes to be an exotic sports car; the body structure and chassis for the car are built from a firm, ultra-light material, and so is the case with the other parts of the car including the body panels, the seats, the steering wheel and several other pieces. This becomes the explanation to the sky rocketing price of the Lexus and to its featherweight of 3,263 lbs.

The reduction of weight of the car automatically enhances the acceleration potential for the 4.8 ltr V10 engine of the car. The 4.8 ltr V10 engine of the car has been derived from the old Formula One race engine of Toyota, and the engine generates maximum power of 552hp, and maximum torque of 354 lbs-ft of utmost. So the LFA very well could be said as a brutally powerful car.

So to sum up the 2012 Lexus LFA we would say that the 2012 Lexus LFA definitely has the potential to stun you, and at times it could even make the Ferraris faint. Although, the price for the car still remains the biggest hurdle for the car, and there’s just no solution to it. This is why one would think (and we do agree) why should I go for the LFA when there are models such as Audi R8.

Ferrari 599, Aston Martin DBS, Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 458 Italia, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, McLaren MP4-12C, Porsche 911 Turbo and Nissan GT-R.  If you are thinking of considering the 2012 Lexus LFA, then do think about the alternatives available for you.

What’s New for 2012 Lexus LFA?

The 2012 Lexus LFA could now be bought; it was lease only last year.

Body Styling and Features:

The 2012 Lexus LFA comes in a single trim level and single body style of a 2 seat exotic sports car. The standard features for the Lexus LFA includes 20 in alloy wheels, Alcantara or leather faux-suede upholstery, carbon-ceramic brakes, summer tires, heated 8-way power seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, xenon headlamps having washers, Bluetooth, a 12-speaker sound system having a 6-CD/DVD changer, an iPod/USB audio interface and an auxiliary audio jack and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.

There are some optional packages available for the car as well, such as the Configuration 2 package; these packages will get you equipments such as rearview camera, premium Mark Levinson sound system and a navigation system. There also is a #8220;Configuration 3#8243; package that will get you these items along with the Lexus Enform emergency telematics, real-time weather and traffic and voice commands.

Under The Hood:

The power for the Lexus LFA comes from a 4.8 ltr front-mounted V10 engine which generates 552 hp and screams to 9,000 rpm, and generates maximum torque of 354 lbs-ft. The power and torque generated is transmitted through a 6 speed single-clutch automated manual transmission, which has 4 driving modes (Sport, Auto, Wet and Normal).

The estimated sprint timing for the car is of 3.6 seconds for 0 to 60 mph, which although is impressive but is a tad slower than the McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari 458 and the exponentially affordable than Nissan GT-R. Nonetheless, the LFA is blisteringly quick in terms of 0 to 60 timings, in comparison to many of the other cars in the market.

Safety Equipments:

The 2012 Lexus LFA comes loaded with stability and traction control and antilock carbon-ceramic brakes. Some other safety features for the car includes seatbelt airbags for both its seats and driver knee airbags.


The 2012 Lexus LFA is the latest exotic sport car offering from Lexus, and we must say that it is one of the finest to enter the market. The car is capable of delivering thrilling performance and comes loaded with plethora of modern equipments and technologies. But considering the price of the car, it will be exciting to see how many customers the car can draw from market.
