Lexus Ends Production After 500th LFA Supercar Rolls off the Line

A little more that three years has passed since Lexus revealed their first supercar to the world and two years since it began deliveries on December 15, 2012, and after it has produced the 500th unit, Lexus has decided to end production of its V10-powered LFA.

The final model, which left Lexus‘ production facility at the Motomachi Plant, Aichi Prefecture in Japan, on Friday, December 14th, was a white 562bhp LFA with the Nurburging Package. Commenting on the end of production, LFA chief engineer, Haruhiko Tanahashi said:

“I’ve lived and breathed supercars for the past decade. Specifically one supercar, LFA. Very few people have the opportunity we had to create a world-class supercar from a blank sheet of paper.”

According to Lexus, 170 hand picked takumi workers made up the dedicated team that was involved in parts manufacturing, vehicle assembly, and painting of the LFA, which was produced at the rate of just one car per day.
