Lexus Builds the Last LFA

If you were hoping to win the lottery, so that you could buy a new Lexus LFA supercar, your time is up. Lexus produced the last LFA last week, a white LFA Nürburgring Package, which was the last of the 500 cars that were planned. Production of the LFA started exactly two years ago, on December 15, 2010, and included a team of around 170 hand-picked takumi workers involved in parts manufacturing, vehicle assembly and painting. The high performance LFA was produced at the rate of just one unit per day.

Lexus says that the learning and passion gained from engineering and producing a world-class supercar can already be seen in the products recently launched by Lexus - across the whole range, not just those carrying the F Sport badge. "I've lived and breathed supercars for the past decade. - remembers Haruhiko Tanahashi, the LFA's Chief Engineer. - Specifically one supercar. The LFA. Very few people have the opportunity we had: to create a world-class supercar from a blank sheet of paper."
