LFA is the first supercar Lexus has ever made and is the final product of the P280 supercar project. It boasts a 72 degree bank angle 4.8 Litre V10 that produces 552bhp, which allows a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h). The engine was co-developed with Yamaha, who also worked on the 1JZ-GTE straight-six.
The Lexus LFA introduced a new digital speedometer design which changes colours depending on RPMs. The speedometer is now applied on new Lexus lineups.
Only 500 were ever built.
Need for Speed: World
It accelerates faster than the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640 and Lotus Evora but lacks a powerful nitrous boost. Corners can be exited very quickly due to great traction and agile handling. The A Class variant has a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h).
Players can use the LFA in all varieties of race events in the game successfully. It is very competitive in race tracks with numerous low-speed corners and hairpin turns.
