Spyshots: Lexus LF-A Undisguised

The "teased for years" Lexus LF-A is brought back in the spotlights thanks to a new set of spyshots, showing the car almost completely undisguised on the Nurburgring circuit. The car, which is reportedly prepared for the first public appearance, come with a finalized bodywork, including front and rear bumpers, a lip spoiler and a rear diffuser.

LED taillights will be offered as well plus triangular-shaped exhaust system that contribute to the overall sporty look of the car.

As for the engine, some media reports are pointing to a 4.8-liter V10 powerplant that generates around 600 horsepower. In order to get the best possible engine performance figures, the company would keep the weight very low by using alternative and lightweight materials, such as carbon fiber, at both the exterior and the interior. Lightweight alloy wheels with five double-spokes will be offered as standard.

Lexus LF-A was first showcased in the form of a concept at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. The production model is rumored to be revealed in the near future, with the Tokyo Motor Show the most likely event to witness the official debut.

It is rumored that the LF-A will go on sale in October and will be offered with a price tag of 50,000 pounds (approximately $403,000). The company wants to build a limited series of 500 vehicles, with 20 units of the series will be especially designed for the United Kingdom. Every buyer will receive the purchased car at a private test track in Spain.

More details are expected to be revealed soon as we get closer to the start of the Tokyo Motor Show.
