BMW and Toyota to co-produce LFA successor?

By Regan_ong on 23 Nov 2013

Attached Image The Lexus LFA has got to be one of the greatest car ever made - simply because of how technologically insane it was, but more significantly, how the V10 sounded like an early 90s F1 car.
Attached Image It has been over two years now that BMW and Toyota come to an agreement to work together and share technological resources to make a car that will set the pace for future cars. But ever since - there has been no work seen between the two automotive giants but recent rumours claim that the two companies are actually working on an LFA successor.
Attached Image With the intention on putting up against cars like the Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 - the aforementioned LFA successor will likely be a hybrid filled with lithium-ion batteries but don’t despair because that isn’t such a bad thing.
Attached Image Instead of looking at the hybrid system as an ecological way to save the environment, we prefer to look at it as a power boost to the engine, making it go even faster! We heard the Japanese also plan to drop BMW’s 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 into this supercar and tag it with Toyota’s hybrid system to create a combination made in heaven.
Attached Image No doubt - we can expect the successor to be flourished in excess of carbon fibre and lightweight materials everywhere, making it absolutely exotic! We can’t wait to see this coming along quickly and an addition to the list of hybrid hypercars on the road nowadays. Cross your fingers though, and hope that this car will not be as ridiculously expensive as the LFA.

Regan's interest in cars started since the time when 'Hot Wheels' was leading the way. Oh yeah.

Supercars developed by mass market brands are actually loss making ventures. Their sole purpose is to push up status of the brands.


Its technically a marketing campaign for them. Typically, they will stretch it for a long period of time, release some sniplets of news now and then to keep up the interest. We won't be seeing this new supercar development moving too fast.
