Lexus LF-A in Matte Black

Autocar has published a bunch of new Lexus LF-A spy shots, this time painted in matte black:

Lexus LF-A Racing Variant in Matte BLack

Lexus LF-A Racing Variant from the back

Judging by the Recaro front seats, this is likely the rumored track-ready version of the Lexus supercar—there’s a few more images in the Autocar gallery, be sure to check them out.

Between this and the white LFA seen a couple days ago, it’s hard not to be impressed with the work refining the LF-A design, which I find very crisp and nicely aggressive. The wheel design suits the car exactly, and I’d say that matte black paint is production ready as well.

    WOWOWOOW! looks so much like concept it makes me want to cry with joy!!! theres a liiiiiitle camo on the lights but you can make it out!!! cant wait for it unveiled!!

  2. wait a second…the license plate. the white LFA is uncensored but this is blurred out…does that mean this is the one that’ll be shown at Tokyo? only thing that bothers me is the antenna, after all that moving around from the previous gens, i really wanted to see a spoiler antenna or shark fin…but its ok. wink i take back all i said about spitting at Mark Templin, i was having a pretty bad day i got an 83% on a Spanish test which made me VERY ANGRY. but anyway, I CANT WAIT FOR THE LFA!!!!

  3. I don’t know… do I want it? Do I really like it? Is it really worth that much?!

    hehe There are leaves stuck in there. I bet the engine has eaten a lot of tiny critters too.

  4. It keeps getting better and better. Can’t wait to see the end result.

  5. I can’t get over how small these supercar species really are. Both this and the Audi R8 are shorter than the Porsche 911. The R8 actually looks really round and cute in person; this has a longer wheelbase than the 911. I wish it were worth less than $200k

  6. i love the side view of the front, so AWESOME.

  7. The reason for the different license plate filters is likely because these photos were taken by different people—and the antenna is probably to communicate with the driver and not something that will be on the production model.

    (And yeah, enough with the weird insults—let’s keep it professional. smile

  8. I’ve heard so many different prices for this car, I’m not even going to bother thinking about it until the MSRP is announced. Just gets too complicated.

  9. This is the best I’ve ever seen the LF-A look—I can’t believe matte black is going to be a production color (or at least, I hope so).

  10. wow

    just wow

    my words can’t describe it

    i simply have no words

  11. look at this! i agree…this sportscar looks better and better.

  12. HA! I thought that grille was a giant panel gap!

  13. Данный пост очень информативен, спасибо Вам!

  14. if i was a lone cricket in the wind, WoL, that would be the way i’d want to go.

  15. i actually saw a 2007 Murano once and it was matte black. it was actually really nice. You see a lot of crazy cars up here in the Glendale hills.

  16. I hope PETA doesn’t charge us drivers for driving too fast and creating an insect Holocaust within our car’s engines, radiators, and even those that decorate the exterior panels. Without cars, they wouldn’t even have the time to do all their stupid things, those… weirdos.

  17. i think its safe to say that PETA is just a group of freaky…freaks who think that somehow 10 ton whales that can’t think of what they’re doing are more important than human lives. so, in that statement, they believe that bees don’t deserve to be completely grinded and incinerated by the vicious, killing raw unleashed beastly creature that is…the V10.

  18. The one at the tip of the hood? I remember thinking the same thing—that engine must get pretty hot!

  19. Милости просим!

  20. Erm, their tactics may be controversial, but I doubt they are advocating for insects…especially considering how massively successful in numbers those tiny creatures have been.

    OTOH, mammals such as whales, animals killed for their fur, etc. are endangered and many organizations are advocating for them.

    Speaking of which,’s site talks about Lexus ‘appreciation for nature’ and their hybrid tech also has an environmental aspect to it.

    Now back on topic, the LF-A is only possible with the rest of the lineup being eco-friendly, this car is an excuse to have some guilty fun.

  21. I love it except those wheels are straight off a 09 Nissan Maxima, come on.

  22. PETA has done some cool things though. The eating vegetarian campaign involved beautiful women as well as nude demonstrations (which included guys…). lol

  23. huh

    Теперь с русским языком

    انا مصري تتاري

  24. حقا شكرا جزيلا لكم على مجهودكم العظيم

  25. LEXUSaddict Will be LFAaddict Soon

    you never fail to amuse me KREW

  26. LEXUSaddict Will be LFAaddict Soon

    نفسه هنا. شكرا!

  27. LEXUSaddict Will be LFAaddict Soon

    like i said…freaky freaks doing freaky things. surprised that they don’t boycott Lamborghini, because Heaven forbid if a little fly gets caught in the v12.

  28. Back to LFA, eh?

  29. Sorry, but Audi & R8 S**** BIG TIME !

  30. This car just keeps looking better & better. Though I wish it didn’t have that awful front quarter window with its thick pillar right in the driver’s lateral field of view. Visibility front & rear might not be that good in the LF-A.
    But it has the potential to be one of the best looking & performing of the new supercar breed.
