The first LF-A concept car — note the now eliminated hyphen — was revealed at the 2005 Detroit Motor Show. This was then restyled in 2007 for a little more drama and was followed in 2008 by a roadster version.
Lexus' Remote Touch controller, which we first saw on the RX350, makes an appearance in the LFA's centre tunnel. It controls the entertainment, navigation and communication system via the centre LCD screen.
Instead of just moving the engine, the designers have placed the transmission near the rear axle to improve weight distribution, which now stands at 48 per cent over the front wheels, 52 per cent over the rear.
