Lexus Chases Ferrari with 552-Horsepower Supercar for $375,000

May 17, 2010

TORRANCE, CA - The latest Lexus model starts at $375,000, according to Bloomberg. Toyota Motor Corp., the same parent company that brings you the 51-mile-per-gallon Prius and $13,000 Yaris, will also be producing the LFA, a 202-miles-per-hour, gasoline-evaporating supercar that competes with the $320,000 Ferrari 599 GTB. Talk about a broad family tree.

I consider this as I walk around one of three drivable LFA prototypes in the world, currently sitting on a racetrack in southern New Jersey. The other two are in Japan and Europe.

Inside, it has leather and Alcantara, automatic seats and navigation like you'll find on the LS 600h L executive sedan. Until now that $109,000 hybrid was the most expensive Lexus model.

The LFA is no hybrid. It has beefy carbon-ceramic brakes, swollen performance tires and a 552-horsepower V-10 engine that will propel it to 60 mph in less than four seconds.
