The LFA, a two-seat supercar from Lexus, went into production in late 2010, with a projected run of 500 vehicles at the base price of US$375,000. The vehicle carried the same designation as the concept LF-A, but without the hyphen. Features a new 4.8 L 1LR-GUE V10 engine and a carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) body. CFRP materials account for 65 percent of the LFA's body composition by mass. 6-speed automated sequential gearbox. Top speed of around 325 km/h (202 mph).

Each LFA V10 engine carried the signature of the specialist who assembled it. With 20 units produced monthly, production of the entire LFA extended from December 2010 to December 2012. Production ended on December 14, 2012. the final 50 copies being a Nürburgring Package variant model.(wikipedia)
