Lexus LFA Rendered as Shooting Brake, a Real Car Could Sell Well

Yes, we know, the idea of a Lexus LFA Shooting Brake might sound absurd. And that's because... such a contraption would be absurd. Then again, the LFA itself isn't exactly the most logical project the Japanese carmaker has ever come up with.

Think about it - Lexus built an insane weaving machine just to be able to bring the LFA's carbon fiber chassis to the world. And they put the machine to work just for the 500 units of the supercar.

And, on paper, the LFA isn't even worth its near-400 grand price tag. Sure, the supercar's production is now over, so one could argue that we shouldn't compare a retired model to the ones you can currently find in showrooms.

However, the LFA's output and its performance figures weren't the best in its price range when the machine was launched.

And yet, this Lexus certainly deserves a special place in the modern supercar history book, simply thanks to the connection to its driver. The LFA is a vehicle that can make you feel better than machines costing even more, with a motorsport handling finesse aroma floating around this Lexus.

Lexus was far from having trouble finding owners for the LFA, with the supercar being acquired by more than just collectors or speculators. As we showed you earlier this week, this is a machine that demands you to manhandle it.

Given the sheer insanity of the LFA, we're pretty sure the Lexus would've found customers just as easily if it came in shooting brake form. Which is why we've brought you the rendering above.

Coming from Rain Prisk Designs, this shows the practical side of the LFA. And since this has always been an important part of the Lexus DNA, we can't see the virtual creation as too much of a stretch. Instead, we have to admit the idea of driving around in one of these seems rather enticing.
