The Lexus LFA is most definitely the first Japanese exotic supercar. Produced with a limited run of only 500 the car is Filled with incredible automotive technology and at almost S$1.25million, is an extremely expensive Toyota. Only a handful was brought into Singapore (around four units, if I am not wrong), and even if you have the cash to buy one, you probably would not get the chance to own one due to its scarcity.

But donít fret because rumours are, Lexus is working on a successor. The alleged rumour was stated by a senior Toyota executive and also mentioned the car to be more exotic, powerful and expensive than the current LFA.

But why would the company want to build a car that is more powerful and more expensive than the LFA? The LFA took almost a decade to develop and a lot of money and resources were spent during the developmental stages. You could say, Lexus already has the technical knowledge and expertise after manufacturing the LFA but really, why is there a need for another exotic supercar after just one year plus?

A possibility is the attention and sales success brought upon by the LFA. These two factors are enough to release another exotic model. It is hard not to think that the recent unveiling of the LF-LC Concept at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show could be Lexusí next exotic supercar since talk about it going into production stirred shortly after.

The LF-LC Concept features a hybrid engine, and is possible that Lexus might go down the same route as Porsche did with their 918 Spider-hybrid technology that offers supercar performance. If Lexus does come up with a successor to the LFA, we might not see it pretty soon because considering the time it took to develop the LFA; the successor might take at least three to five years.

As for now, both Toyota and Lexus have not commented on the the alleged rumours.

Some say that his blood is actually RON98 petrol and some say that his right foot weighs over 20kg. But all that we know about Faez is that he loves to drive and is a JDM enthusiast.
