Yellow Lexus LFA Hits the Web
One of the most interesting supercars around today is the Lexus LFA. We’ve all seen the stunning automotive creation in various situations wearing black or white, but now it’s time for something else.
Ladies and Gentlemen the Lexus LFA has hit the web wearing nothing but pure yellow (the images were published by the lexusenthusiast website). The color of the vehicles makes you wonder if the Japanese haven’t decided to built their own raising sun. Actually, this could be the country’s racing sun. But enough with the metaphors.
As you can see, this color really emphasizes the vehicles details and offers it an aura that could scare even a Lamborghini. After all, if the engineers that built the LFA chose to use bold solutions, why shouldn’t the paint department do the same?
And speaking of engineering, we’d like to remind you what kind of animal the LFA is. The vehicle uses a carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) center monologue with aluminum front and rear subframes, with the CFRP being weaved by one of the two laser monitored circular looms in the world.
Behind the seats (and the firewall, of course), we find a naturally aspirated 4.8 liter V10 unit that delivers 552 hp at 8,700 rpm and a maximum torque of 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) at 6,800 rpm. The engine uses dry sump lubrication and lets the driver play until up to 9,500 rpm.
The Lexus LFA needs 3.7 seconds to cover the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) spring and can keep on accelerating until 202 mph (325 km/h).
