Designing and engineering a flagship supercar such as the Lexus LFA is no easy task as chief engineer Tanahashi Haruhiko will gladly tell.
With over a decade in the making, it’s no surprise that he has quite a bit to share about the supercar project.
Haruhiko has over 30 years of experience in new vehicle design, but a good third of that was spent developing the Lexus LFA supercar. And now that his hard work has resulted in a magnificent machine, he decided to give some insight as to how decisions were made on the LFA, and how it went from concept form to reality.
A series of blog posts have been published on the Lexus LFA portal site and is basically a journal written by Haruhiko on his journey into making the LFA. From the sonorous roar of the V10 to the LFA’s Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) system, the LFA’s Chief Engineer goes into rich detail in a way that makes us appreciate the supercar even more.
Now we’ll just continue to anxiously await news on the Lexus LFA II.
