DescriptionEdit

"An ultra high-tech sportscar bringing stable quality to cutting-edge technology."


20 years before Japan's automotive industry was truly recognized by the world, Toyota created a sports car called the 2000GT, which brought together the newest technology of the 1960s. And today in the 21st century, Toyota has again created a cutting edge sports car: the LFA.

Its development was not easy, having to start from the establishment of production techniques for the carbon fiber body. For Toyota it was not enough to make components match and fit together manually by hand; it was a challenge of their pride as a mass production manufacturer, to provide the newest technology with absolutely stable quality.

One of the most important factors of a sports car, the front to rear weight distribution, is 48 to 52. The trans-axle layout and the radiator mounted in the rear helped to achieve this figure. The vehicle weight was suppressed to 1,480 kg. And the development team put even more emphasis on lowering the center of gravity, utilizing a dry-sump lubrication system for the V10 engine, and going as far as to position the driveshaft a bit higher by adding a reduction gear, so that the entire mounting of the power train could be made lower.

The 4.8-liter V10 has a bank angle of 72 degrees, and it redlines at 9,500 rpm. The 552 HP power equates to 115 HP per liter, but its high performance is still environment friendly. The transmission utilizes a 6-speed 2-pedal MT, which shifts at 0.2 seconds, on par with the world's top racing machines.

The brakes are standardly equipped with carbon ceramic disks, with 6-pot calipers in the front and 4-pot calipers in the rear, all with varying piston sizes.

62 mph acceleration is just 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 201 mph, and the car is a limited production of only 500 cars worldwide.
