Spyshots: Lexus LFA Tokyo / Final Edition

When Lexus revealed their first ever supercar back in 2009, they said they would only ever be making 500 units in total. Production is supposed to run out in December this year, and a US official says supply is now in the single digits. This is the perfect time for the company to launch a celebratory edition to mark the end of LFA production.

A strange LFA has been spotted testing on the famous Nordschleife track in Germany. It looks largely similar to the LFA Nurburgring Edition, but actually there are a few differences. This ties in with rumors that an LFA Tokyo edition will be launched this year with naked carbon fiber for the roof and bonnet, which this has.

The LFA comes with an additional air intake on its hood, a small bootlid spoiler and quad exhaust tips at the very top of the backside of the car. This comes instead of the regular three-pipe, triangular design.

The LFA Tokyo edition will probably be a few kilos lighter, a few horsepower more potent, a few milliseconds quicker to shift and so forth. It will all add up to a new Nurburgring lap time that’s faster than the 7:14.64 set by the Nurburgring edition.
