Lexus LFA details:

Constructed using advanced carbon fibre technology, the rear-wheel drive Lexus LFA is powered by a bespoke, high-revving 552bhp 4. 8-litre naturally aspirated V10 motor, matched to a rear-mounted six-speed sequential automatic transmission, giving 200mph-plus performance.

In the words of Chief Engineer Haruhiko Tanahashi: The Lexus LFA is a thoroughbred supercar, a machine engineered to achieve a single objective - to deliver a supreme driving experience. Over the past decade we have pushed each boundary in pursuit of this objective and I believe we have created the most driver-orientated vehicle we possibly could.

Keeping the car's weight to an absolute minimum was one of the defining components in the development of the Lexus LFA and this led to the decision to switch from using aluminium for the car's construction to advanced Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) for the chassis and bodywork.
