Lexus SUPERCAR aka LF-A(LF-L) spotted without camouflage!

It has some camo left but it's 99% there(taillights, front bumper)

Enjoy the pics.






Here's the article :http://www.nextautos.com

I'm a lexus fan but this car is just too bland........! On a positive, I like the funky rear bumper, front bumper intakes and the rear intake type something but that's about it. The car is pretty mildly designed to be a supercar.

On the otherside, people wanting high revving engine will be delighted with this car.

4.8 V10 singing to the tune of 9000rpm giving above 500hp would be

supercars these days seem to defined by how weird they can make the exhaust look...I bet in a few years we'll have exhausts coming out from the hood or like door mirrors or someshit like that.

It looks like a Celica replacement and they want to charge a few hundred thousand dollars for the pleasure of owning one.

Point out a single part of the car that screams GTR. This has been testing for years. A GTR is not as low slung or sleek as this. A GTR doesn't have nice 10 spokes like this. This is by no means a Nissan

This car's design has a lot of potential if only they tweaked a few things.


And it appears that the triangular shape in the front bumper is fake.


The Triangular exhaust design actually looks really good on this car.

The rest of the rear bumper leading up to the tailights is where it starts to look weird.

They tried to make it R8-ish and it turned out looking not-so-pretty.

I'm sure it will look somewhat better in person.

Bunch of fashionistas up in here.. I'm more concerned about how it drives than how it looks.

Sucks it won't be available with a stick.

Sucks we have this instead of the NSX. Honda makes much better sporty cars than this accounting firm that occasionally remembers that it is a carmaker.

No passion, just numbers.

+1....Honda makes amazing sports cars. I have only heard praises on NSX and S2000's handling. The only bad thing I heard about these cars was that they were underpowered.

I just wish Honda/Acura brings a halo super car.

P.S ....I dont think Lexus sucks....even if the design isn't good, at least they are bringing a supercar unlike some others (ahem BMW)

Not a fan - First of all it looks nothing like a GTR. With that said, I understand the Nissan comparison. Look at just the roof line first - It looks just like a 1991 - 1996 300ZX with a big bulky body kit -

Question

Is it really naked? Those tail lights still look camo'd.

If they aren't, worst tail lights EVAR.

No it looks nothing like the Nissan supercar but I understand why he said what he did. On seeing these pictures the word 'GTR' also jumped into my mind and I believe the reason for that was it doesn't have the usual slender appearance of most supercars, in fact it's got a chunkiness that's more in common with the Nissan.

I really just don't like this car that much.

Good for Lexus. They need a good sports car for their image, but damn, this thing doesn't tingle my sack at all.
