2012 Lexus LFA Review


Minimal cargo

Unrefined automated manual


This review was when the 2012 Lexus LFA was

The 2012 Lexus LFA wows with its agility and Formula powertrain, but stumbles with an transmission and an astronomically-high base

Test drivers rwrite there’s a lot to like about first exotic sports but unfortunately there are also a few areas where the 2012 LFA doesn’t do well. From a standpoint, the LFA earns recognition for its V8 engine, which was derived Toyota’s now-defunct Formula 1 The LFA also has a carbon-fiber and aluminum structure to reduce its weight and structural rigidity. Combined its performance-tuned suspension, reviewers say the result is a car that handles, and brakes with impressive

Unfortunately, most auto dislike the LFA’s six-speed automated manual transmission. say it lacks the refinement of the dual-clutch available on many of its competitors, and it has trouble finding the right if you’re just cruising in automatic mode.

The cockpit of the LFA is both luxurious and high-quality. LFA can choose from a multitude of fabric and color combinations to their LFA, and with 500 planned for production, the added only adds to the LFA’s And while getting in and out of the LFA can require a bit of reviewers generally agree the seats are comfortable. Still, space is minimal, and while test drivers say that the interior tech has a leg up on its European others counter that the controls still require attention to master.

Still, with a base of $375,000, perhaps the biggest about the Lexus LFA is its price “The LFA is behind the current of supercars in certain areas, one of being performance per dollar,” Motor Trend. “Several of match or beat the LFA’s at half or less the price.”

Cars to Consider

Lexus LFA

If you’re not by the LFA’s high price, the Aventador is worth serious The Aventador starts at almost but its 700-horsepower V12 engine means you’ll get a lot more performance. a zero to 60 mph time of just 2.9 the Aventador is also 0.7 seconds to 60 mph than the LFA.

The LFA’s level of performance can be had for significantly less money as If you’d like to save than half of the LFA’s consider the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. at $183,000, the SLS closely matches the performance abilities with a V8 and a zero to 60 mph time of 3.7 seconds.

Lexus LFA: The Details

The Lexus LFA starts at $375,000 and a 4.8-liter V10 engine that 552 horsepower. A six-speed automated transmission routes power to the wheels, and the LFA maintains a relatively weight thanks to its body, is constructed of aluminum and carbon-fiber.

Standard features include wheels, dual-zone climate leather or faux-suede Alcantara Bluetooth and a 12-speaker stereo a six-disc CD changer and USB interface. The 2 package adds a Mark surround sound stereo and The Configuration 3 package adds the features plus Lexus’ telematics system and XM Radio traffic and weather updates.

Out of the Toyota’s first supercar a Ferrari. Yeah, you read correctly. If Toyota put the same and passion into the rest of its the company would be unbeatable. Car and Driver A number of cars can or beat the LFA’s lofty figures at a fraction of the price, and of them boast more surnames. But for those who assign to exclusivity (only 500 are to be built), and high-tech sophistication, the LFA would be a addition to their garage. Consumer Guide There’s a chance Bob Barker and Drew won’t be interested in the 2012 LFA. Considering this $375,000 MSRP, the price is certainly not right. — Lexus is a latecomer to the supercar and evidently presumptuous about its There’s no reason the LFA should $217,000 more than the V10 mid-engine Audi R8, for example; or as much as the Mercedes SLS AMG, has more horsepower and torque; or more than the mid-engine 458, with more all-around; or the same as the Lamborghini with a 700-horsepower mid-engine V12 and a carbon-fiber chassis, not to mention a transmission and top speed of 217

mph, for those track at the Bonneville Salt Flats. New Car Test Drive
