“Lexus' last engine sports!? The new LFA is equipped with HEV! Debuts in summer 2025 with 720 horsepower
LFA is the legendary super sport produced by Lexus.The Lexus LFAII, which will inherit this DNA, is currently under development. The LFAII is equipped with a newly developed V8 and 4L twin-turbo HEV, and is planned to be a catalog model rather than a limited edition. When will it come out?
The LFAII is likely to be the last engine super sports model. It is a monster equipped with a newly developed V8, 4L twin-turbo HEV and boasts 720ps. Like the previous LFA, it is a transaxle FR and is made with an aluminum chassis + carbon body. I was surprised to hear that it will be a catalog model rather than a limited edition. A race-specific GT3 machine is also being developed in parallel, and after its debut, which is said to be in the summer of 2025, it will be seen active in the world racing scene.”

I'm curious whether the 720 hp includes the output of the battery or not, I remember they were claiming that it will be close to 1000 hp

BestCar will recycle their stories after 3-4 months on their web page for those who didn't buy the magazine. So nothing new here.

Rumors are saying that we might be seeing a prototype or pre-prod version of this LFR at the upcoming Tokyo Auto Salon in January 2024.

Lol.
It took them so long to finally break cover. A freaking decade of endless wait.
Their complete silence and lack of communication whether they are still working on the project enraged their fans.
They milked online dlc to death and reintroduced the same freaking old game from ps3 to ps5.
All sound familiar eh?

Lexus LFAI discovery

Reproduced in the October 23 issue, the rear view of the Mercede LFA II is on the front. The long nose is reminiscent of the AMG GT, giving it the silhouette of a sports car.

I found LFAⅡ. The tail lamp was probably an unfinished official part, but the part was installed as a dummy part. When it enters the race, it will be equipped with a large camouflage wing.

Is the transaxle AT 8 speed instead of 10 speed?

G at the Tokyo Auto Salon about 2 years ago

Ever since the R-GT3 concept was unveiled, this magazine has constantly investigated and published the development status. Looking back at what we have told you in the past, a 4LV8 turbo is installed vertically in the front nose, a motor to assist the engine is placed behind that, and an AT is placed in front of the rear axle. We have previously reported that the AT is a 10-speed, but we have received new information that it is an 8-speed, so we would like to add this. The study model was introduced under the GR name, but since there is a possibility that it will appear wearing a Lexus badge when it goes on the market, this magazine will refer to it by the tentative name LFA II.

continuing.

The development of LFAⅡ is progressing steadily.

A test car that can be used for actual driving has been assembled. This is confirmed by the raw photo posted above, which was exclusively captured by this magazine at a certain location. The body is completely camouflaged, but You can see the super wide tires, the large protruding rear fender, and the slanted back window.The tail lamps are still unfinished and are dummy.

Parts have been substituted, but it is easy to imagine that the notch will be molded into a thin shape. Furthermore, it has a rear wing pattern. It must also be equipped.

The GR brand name will be displayed at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Scoop investigated the concept model that appeared in

However, sometimes released by Lexus

The reason why it is so disguised is probably because the preparations for running are carried out in a place where the general public can see it. However, since the Hürburgring is closed for the winter, it is unlikely that the test cars will be taken overseas until at least next spring. It seems more likely that he will visit Fuji Speedway for a secret test before that. After this, it will participate in the 24 Hours of Nurburgring (held on June 1st and 2nd in 2024) and move on to the finishing touches.

Release is planned for after 5 years

However, it appears that GT3 machines will be on sale first, and there is also information that a preview of their release has been given to entrants who are participating in Toyota vehicles such as the RC-F. A road-going version that can be driven on public roads is also being prepared, but its release is likely to be delayed for several years. The plan is to first impress the public with its success in racing, and then sell it by promoting the car as ``a car that was trained on a racing field.''

Uda.

By the way, the LFA II development team has long been running the project using the Mercedes-AMG GT as a benchmark. However, the new AMG GT, which was unveiled in August 2023, changed to a four-seater and evolved in an unexpected direction. It seems that even the Toyota development team was not expecting this, and said, ``There was widespread unrest within the team.''

There is also testimony that Toyota's efforts to connect commercial cars and motorsports seem to be slowly taking hold, and the arrival of the LFAI will likely further strengthen collaboration and improve the company's image.

Imagine they manage to make a good sounding V8 turbo… but I doubt it, even Maserati could not.
