Lexus supercar still on course for production
18 June 2009

The Lexus LF-A supercar will make its first UK public appearance at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The V10 powered LF-A recently competed the Nurburgring 24-hour race as part of its ongoing development programme and will be tackling Goodwood’s hill course.

A source at Lexus told Autocar that the car will be going into production and it is hoped a road version will appear in 2010.

F1 driver Timo Glock will be driving the Toyota TF108 at Goodwood, the last F1 Toyota to be designed before the sport introduced its current restrictions on wing sizes and additional aerodynamic elements.

The Toyota Sprint Series will be represented for the first time on the hillclimb, in the shape of the 690bhp Fensport 4WD Celica GT4-X.

There will also be a static display of Alain Prost’s winning Andros Trophy Auris.

The four-time F1 champion has claimed back-to-back titles in the annual ice racing championship at the wheel of the Auris, which features carbonfibre bodywork and a tuned version of the 3.0-litre V6 engine that was used in the Lexus RX.
