Lexus to Debut 800 Horsepower Next-Generation LFA at 2019 Tokyo Motor Show?

Lexus LFA II Successor

Despite all evidence otherwise, Japanese website Response is reporting Lexus will introduce a new LFA at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.

The rumor takes it even further, suggesting that this LFA successor will be powered by 3.7L V8 hybrid capable of 800 horsepower — this is down considerably from the previous rumors of a 1,000 horsepower hypercar being built by Lexus & BMW.

No matter the details, it seems unlikely. Senior-level executives have repeatedly said there are no immediate plans for a next-generation LFA, and besides, it’s more likely that the eventual LC F coupe will fill the top of the Lexus performance lineup more comfortably.
