20th July, 2012

An Australian owner of a $700,000 (approx) Lexus LFA super car has taken their vehicle to the extreme - wrapping it in a unique chrome exterior. LFA number 304 - one of only 10 Lexus LFAs in Australia and 500 in the world - is the first example to receive the chrome treatment.

The car will be displayed at MotorEx in Sydney this week-end.

Lexus LFA is a powerful, balanced and lightweight vehicle, featuring an advanced Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) construction for its chassis and bodywork to deliver a light, incredibly strong and highly rigid structure. Sixty-five per cent of LFA's body structure is carbon fibre, while the remaining 35 per cent is aluminium.

Powering the super car is a bespoke 4.8-litre V10 engine producing 412 kW of power and 480 Nm of torque. It propels the Lexus LFA to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and is capable of revving from idle to a redline of 9,000 rpm in just 0.6 seconds. Top speed of the LFA on a race track is 325 km/h.
