Lexus stops building the LFA

UPDATE

The final LFA comes off the line

On December 14, a white LFA Nürburgring Package left LFA works, the dedicated production facility at the Motomachi Plant, Aichi Prefecture. This marks the end of production for Lexus very first supercar.

As the final vehicle left the production line, LFA chief engineer, Haruhiko Tanahashi said, ‘I’ve lived and breathed supercars for the past decade. Specifically one supercar, LFA. Very few people have the opportunity we had to create a world-class supercar from a blank sheet of paper.’

Production at LFA Works started exactly two years ago, on December 15, 2010, and included a team of around 170 hand-picked takumi workers involved in parts manufacturing, vehicle assembly and painting. The LFA was produced at the rate of just one car per day.

12/17/12 Lexus announced Monday that it will stop building the Lexus LFA supercar.

"I've lived and breathed supercars for the past decade," says Haruhiko Tanahashi, the LFA's chief engineer. "Specifically one supercar, the LFA. Very few people have the opportunity we had: to create a world-class supercar from a blank sheet of paper."
