Lexus has dropped hints that a replacement for the Lexus LF-A could already be in development. Haruhiko Tanahashi, the engineer who conceived the LF-A supercar told to Autocar recently that the LF-A replacement will be based on the stunning LF-LC concept (shown here).
He said he personally hope that the LF-LC will be built and that Lexus’s recent track record of putting most of its concept cars into production is a strong indication that it will enter production. This was also reaffirmed recently by Lexus’s international boss, Mark Templin who confirmed that a halo sports car would reappear.
The halo model will sit on top of the upcoming RC Coupé. Unlike the Lexus LF-A which cost almost three-quarter of a million dollars in Australia, its replacement will have a more down to earth price point.
Before the reintroduction of the LF-A replacement though, a sleuth of F-badged models will be rolled-out first in the next few years, beginning with a 5.0-litre V8 RC F which will be introduced at next month’s Detroit Motor Show. A GS F was also recently spied testing, while a second-generation IS F has been rumoured on and off.
