With its world debut in Tokyo and a private industry-only display at the SEMA Show, Lexus will give its LFA supercar the official first public showing in North America at the LA Auto Show.
The LFA is powered by a 4.8-liter V10 engine with 552-hp and 354 ft-lbs of torque. Weighing just 3,263 lbs thanks to a chassis and body that is mostly constructed of carbon fiber, the LFA can hit 62 mph in 3.7 seconds and tops out a 202 mph! Just 5o0 LFAs will be built a a cost of $375,000 each.
After LA, the car’s plans are limited, with Lexus announcing that for 2009 it will visit just four more shows in Detroit (at the North American International Auto Show), Chicago, Dallas and New York.
AutoGuide’s live LA Auto Show coverage starts December 2nd.
