More Photos of the Lexus LFA Code X Racecar


Lexus LFA Code X

The Lexus LFA Code X was introduced at the Tokyo Auto Salon by Toyota president Akio Toyoda last week, here are some photos from Response.jp:

The news of the LFA Code X was buried somewhat with the introduction of the new RC F, but it’s a significant new development in Lexus racing — the bigger 5.3L V10 and full carbon frame body would indicate some serious research and development, and there’s speculation this Code X also has a longer wheelbase than the current LFA.

Could this be a research testbed for the long-rumored production LF-LC, or even some new LFA II?

    Definitely the LFA 2.

    Cannot wait to see the production Lexus LFA 2 with a 5.3 Liter V10 and 12,000 rpm redline!! (yes, I have very very strong proof that this 5.3 Liter V10 is capable of revving up to 12,000 rpm. Although, the Gazoo LFA will not rev over 9000 rpm due to air restrictor regulations) .
    That is going to be simply insane. Lexus will again redefine what an exotic race car engine should be like and what Lexus’ interpretation of a hypercar is like.

    It does look longer esp in the engine bay. The cabin also doesn’t look as big/modified.
    It could also be that the lens used was a wide angle and it distorted the image and wasn’t fixed in post…

    No it does have a longer wheelbase in reality. Most likely the chassis is for the new hypercar Tanahashi said he was working on.

    The LFA dominated the supercar world, the LFA II will dominate the hypercar world.

    Guys

    Anyone read that the collaboration of Toyota and BMW is just for the next Z4 with the THS-II which means it will not even for the Supra and it will be just for Celica or even MR-S as this new synergy drive was introduced before in the MR-S based GRMN

    So, wow

  • Levi

    Can’t imagine Toyota having so many sportscars. GT86 (NA 2.0 F4), Celica (FI 2.0 I4 + Hybrid), Supra (FI 3.0 I6), RC-F, (NA 5.0 V8), SC (FI 4.0 V8 + Hybrid), LFA II (NA 5.3l V10 + Hybrid).

    Good step to regain the old days
    Toyota want as a brand to sell also 4 performance cars on 2016 as Nissan planned

    So Celica successor, supra successor, MR-S successor, GT
