New Best Car Rendering of the Rumored Lexus LFA II


Japanese magazine Best Car has published a new rendering of the rumored Lexus LFA II (click for a larger version):

Lexus LFA II Rendering

Getting beyond whether Lexus is actually considering a next-generation LFA, this rendering makes for a curious study — the front-end is treading into generic supercar territory with similar lines to the Nissan GTR, but at the same time, it’s a decent reinterpretation that doesn’t make me wince the way these photochops usually do.

What do you think?

(Thanks Cliff!)

    Don’t render a Lexus to look like a Ford… -___-

  • Sora Yi

    I agree that the front end is starting to look like a generic supercar. All in all, I don’t really like this new rendering.

  • BOSS

     Bad photochop!

  • Brad

    I like the current model WAY better,but if Lexus made an MKII LFA,it would be SHHHHWEET!!!

    put some more spindle on that

  • BlackDynamiteNY

    So the LFA II is really a mid-gen facelift that would add the spindle grille, drop weight, add power, add features, etc.

    Sounds like a plan……

    agreed just build the damn thing

  • Hamed Hamed Saqer

    Well, it’s going to be GREAT to have Second-Generation Lexus LFA… However we NEED more Power. Also, If they really want this car with HIGH price … Than They NEED to build it LIKE really powerful car… It shouldn’t be perfect … but at least it can BEAT GT-R, Mercedes, Ferrari 458, PORSCHE 991, and so on…. 
    One last thing…. Can they BUILD an LFA with BACK engine.

  • 05RollaXRS

    LFA is a real supercar. What the hell are you smoking?? Beating a Porsche 991?? LFA holds the record of the 4th quickest lap time around Nurburgring of 7:14 in history. On several tracks, LFA is quicker than 458 Italia, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Porsche 911 GT3 RS etc.

  • 05RollaXRS

    No way will it be a twin turbo. The engine is perfect as it is.

  • 05RollaXRS

    LFA is a quiet car??? You know nothing about the LFA absolutely. It has a naturally aspirated F1 racing derived V10 that revs up to 9500 rpm and screams louder than any Ferrari or Lamborghinl.

  • 05RollaXRS

    More power is always nice and the engine can put out 125 HP/Liter easily being a Yamaha co-developed engine.

  • 05RollaXRS

    Again, I could be misinterpreting your post since it is very difficult to understand what you are writing.

  • NamorF

    I don’t like how they made it look like a Taurus and a GTR put together. But the idea of an even beastlier LFA would be pretty freaking awesome!!!!

  • Robert Ladaga

    No!

  • Hrxnk

    The LFA 2 sounds nice

  • Mike DeLorca

    Agree to more spindle grill….love the fact of maybe an LFA II….bring it on !

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    To be honest, I was only paying attention to the front end. The rest of the car would definitely need some serious changes.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Yeah, now that you mention it, it does look like a Ford — I saw GTR merged with spindle grille.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    I think we’ve both seen worse. ;-)

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Yeah, you might want to dial it back a bit — Hamed’s comment is difficult to interpret, but I don’t see anything to take offense over. :-)

  • Raptor

    Actually 05RollaXRS I have seen the LFA in person and the
    car is generally quiet compared to its competitors until it wails at 7k to 9k
    RPM’s.  Lambo’s are deep and harsh and
    loud even at low RPM’s and so are some Ferraris which to me sound raspier; the
    LFA is refined and quiet until you really push it.

    don’t forget to mention on stock tires while other cars were using slicks…

  • Hamed Hamed Saqer

    YES I know it’s a REAL supercar and an Amazing Supercar but, in the UAE it doesn’t seem LIKE one. To ME!!! that car is the BEST car I’ve SEEN… And I know it get the QUICKEST lap time around Nurburgring. Also, I’m the biggest FAN of Lexus.

  • DuDE

    Any chance that it could be mid-engined?

  • Travis

    LFA.. 2 ?

     love lexus  every car they makes and today they have beaten slr in very few days they will beat buggati

    Lexus needs 700hp + to battle the next gen ferrari enzo that thing is topping over 900hp. Wonder why Lexus doesn’t implement more F1 tech in there cars, since they have available tech having raced in F1

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/AVBALQBRIEZAYIYBYLPL6TUC5M buddy

    I’m thinking Lexus is going to announce the LFA II alongside with the next gen Supra from Toyota. LFA n Supra = end of the world

  • Travis

    I liked your comment by mistake… but I dont see no ford in this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/LexusandThePursuit WorldofLuxury

    ahahaha! That’s a first! You don’t see the new Taurus/Fusion/Focus in this picture?!

  • BlackDynamiteNY

    There’s no spindle grille, so you know this is a miss…..
