Rumour: Lexus LFA Roadster Debuts in 2014

Automotive News reports that a roadster version of the Lexus LFA is being planned. After the current batch of 500 Coupes is built, there likely will be a one-year hiatus before a roadster version is offered, probably in mid-2014.

The news follows after Lexus displayed a roadster version of the LF-A concept car designated LF-A Roadster or LF-AR at the North American International Auto Show in January 2008. Spyphotographers spotted the LF-A Spyder on the Nürburgring as early as October 2005.

The limited Lexus LFA is powered by a 4.8 liter V10. The natural aspirated engine produces 560bhp at 8,700rpm and 480Nm of torque at 6,800rpm. The power is transmitted to the rear wheels through a six-speed ASG transmission ensuring a 0-100km/h sprint of 3.7 seconds and a claimed top speed of 325km/h.

The open-top supercar could look like the renderings made by Autogespot.com.

    Frankly, I dont give a ….. I think Lexus LFA has been overrated from the very beginning of its tale. Come on…. It looks like garbage and they train the customers who buy it to drive with it and they pick the customers and and…. yeah. Garbage.

    Oh my…I have to change pants. This looks fabulous. I love the LFA and I usually hate roadsters but this is just pure pornography. I hope it will look like on these renders :)
