Lexus LFA Special Edition Announced

 Lexus LFA Special Edition Announced

Minor tweaks, added performance

Lexus has unveiled the first images of the LFA Special Edition.

While details are scarce, the car features a front lip spoiler, aerodynamic canards or winglets on the sides of the front bumper, a fixed rear wing made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, unique wheels, and an exclusive paint job (in black, matte black, pure white, or orange).

In terms of performance, the special edition boasts a revised suspension, a quicker transmission (it shifts .05 seconds faster), and additional power.  The 4.8-liter V10 produces approximately 570 PS (419 kW / 562 hp) - an increase of 10 PS (7 kW / 10 hp).

No word on pricing or availability, but look for more information to be released in the coming months.

Not upset scratchy, i just find it interesting that you completely ignore everything Toyota HAS accomplished due to your aforementioned ignorance. At first you seem smart...then...not.

WTF! A special edition of a car that is supposed to be a limited edition? The "base" model was supposed to be scarce itself...and now they pull this crap. As Chris25 says...fixed wing made of carbon fiber reinforced PLASTIC!!! hahaha... This made my day...what a joke... And finally they really shouldn't use the first picture too much...it does indeed look too much like the last Celica! Toyota...come back to your senses...don't be too arrogant...Lexus is not a luxury car maker and does not belong in the price stratosphere that you're trying to market this car in... Do us real car fans...the ones that are making you money...a favor and use the resources for making this car on speeding up the production of the spiritual successor of the AE-86. The masses will love you again.

bahahahahaha, they just came out with a car and already they are releasing a version that has a quicker transmission. Does that mean they purposely put in a slower transmission to come out with a special edition in the future? HAHa, that is so stupid.

 M! M!
these 'limited edition' of a 'special edition' sucks. certainly there are ultra exclusive individuals who want theirs to be very unique, but to the other 4-500 owners who now become 'SECOND CLASS' after paying this much for exclusivity, it is poor marketing.

"a fixed rear wing made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic", I would have a full carbon fiber wing & not plastic. Overpriced & not a fast car & ugly at the same time.

Does it look a bit like the seventh gen. Celica in the first picture?

See what I mean about all these special/limited/annivery edition thing going overboard with all these car companies. Now there's one before the car even hit the street.

Isn't a normal LFA overpriced as it is? Who's going to buy a limited edition? It's probably to commemorate their participation in 24 Hours of Nurburgring.
