This is the 500th and final Lexus LFA which rolled off the production line early this morning at the Motomachi plant in Japan. The assembly featured a team of around 170 hand-picked specialist ‘takumi’ workers involved in parts manufacturing, vehicle assembly and painting.
The production of the supercar began two years ago and has been built at a rate of one car per day. While the final LFA left the factory, LFA chief engineer, Haruhiko Tanahashi said;
I’ve lived and breathed supercars for the past decade, specifically one supercar, LFA. Very few people have the opportunity we had to create a world-class supercar from a blank sheet of paper.
Just as a quick recap, The LFA is the second model from the F-Series and follows the IS-F. It features a race-derived 72-degree V10, displacing 4.8 liters and producing a peak power of 552hp at 8,800rpm. The maximum is a thrilling 9,000rpm. Peak torque is 354lb-ft at 6,800rpm with 90 percent available between 3,700 and 9,000 revs.
