Thanks Rolla

This is definitely the car we discussed a few months ago and now with better pics.

I emailed the photographer to see if he has some details (production car, badge, Tokyo Edition or owner spec?) and will provide an update if I get a response.

Beautiful vehicle... but I was expecting exposed CF along the lines of the HKS Altezza.

Expensive carbon spoiler on a standard LFA. Now this definitely should been a real option, along with the carbon roof.

Definitely nice, title should be changed to exposed carbon roof and spoiler IMO.

Correct.. I forgot what thread it was discussed this in...

EDIT: Found it in thread called: Brasil

I do think this was and still is one of original prototypes shown off in different countries..

This on still happens to be in Brazil... (In my own opinion)

Here are videos & pics from this past summer.. of the LFA in Brazil / Brasil.





http://revistaautoesporte.globo.com/...-10142,00.html









Single unit of LFA for sale in Brazil is in contention for customers willing to shell out £ 2.9 million

A rare gem indeed. This is perhaps the main argument of the Lexus to entice a small group of Brazilian clients who are interested in the LFA single unit for sale in the country. On Wednesday (6/27), the flag's luxury Toyota just announced that it will provide a copy of supercupÍ here. Is it so hard to see the LFA in action on home soil, claimed that the figure matches that such exclusivity: £ 2.9 million. This price surpasses even traditional models of brands in the business such as Ferrari and Lamborghini .

But the Lexus LFA emphasizes that the differential is even a car. Production will be limited to 500 units, and the powerful coupe was created to be a benchmark in the world of cars superesporte. The design is marked by muscular waist high, narrow glass area and ceiling accented with trim. The lines transmit the aggressiveness of mechanical joining an automatic transmission and six-speed sequential block a violent aspirated V10 4.8 petrol. This block generates 560 hp at 8700 rpm high, strong and 48.9 lb.-ft. of torque, dumped by integer spins to 7800. The automaker informs acceleration from zero to 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds and maximum impressive 325 km / h.

Customer will configure model to Japan
According to Lexus, the LFA production in Japan is done by hand. In all, only 20 model units are produced per month. The one that will emplacada in Brazil is expected to arrive in early 2013. Until, enthusiastic, passionate and curious can check a copy that will be exposed with a status of "artwork" on the premises of the Lexus resale. This unit is the same as the first first three photos that illustrate the news, with white bodywork and benches covered in red leather and black.

Beautiful. Have to wonder if the car would look good if it could come fully unpainted as the title suggests though.
