The Lexus LFA is a two seater supercar manufactured by Lexus. It is the second model to be introduced in Lexus' F Performance series after the Lexus IS-F and the first model of the LF line.

It is the first supercar Lexus has ever made and is the final product of their P280 supercar project. It boasts a 72-degree bank angle 4.8-litre V10 that produces 552 bhp and is linked to a 6-speed single-clutch automated manual transmission, with a top speed 202 mph (325 km/h). The engine was co-developed with Yamaha, who also worked on the 1JZ-GTE straight-six.

The Lexus LFA introduced a new digital speedometer design which changes colours depending on RPMs. The speedometer is now applied on new Lexus lineups.

Only 500 were ever built.
