Tracking The Development History Of Lexus LF-A
2000 - 2004
The development of this vehicle started in 2000, and the aim of the company was to develop a vehicle that will showcase the capabilities of Toyota company and its Lexus marquee. It was in June 2003 that the first prototype got completed. Since then, prototypes of this vehicle could be seen every now and then in Nurburg, Germany.
The first concept LFA was showcased in 2005 North American International Auto show in Detroit. As for the name of the vehicle, it was reported at the time as Lexus Future-Advance. However, this name was dismissed by the company. At the same time, the company was planning the launch of its F marquee series and hence, the production of LFA was postponed at the time.
The development time of the vehicle got further extended when the engineers switched from aluminum frame to carbon frame in order to achieve better power to weight ratio. In January 2007, a new concept LFA was showcased. This concept car had more aerodynamic exteriors, near production interiors and F marquee emblems. Later the same year, a V10 and hybrid version of LFA is also planned by the company. In 2008, a roadster version of LFA was introduced by the company.
It was on August 5th, 2009 that the CEO of Toyota made the official announcement about LFA. In October 2009, the first production LFA was unveiled by the company. This production announcement also marked the 20th anniversary celebration of the company.
Production And Sale
The company started taking orders for this vehicle from 23 October, 2009. However, the customers of this vehicle were very carefully chosen and hence, the actual production based on confirmed order started only in the second quarter of 2010. The vehicle costs approximately $375000, based on the options selected and level of customization done to the vehicle.
