    [SIZE=4]Lexus Manila's lone LFA supercar has arrived[/SIZE]
    Words and photos by Christopher Kho



    Of the 500 units produced worldwide, LFA No. 161 has finally arrived in the Philippines. Draped in its official color code “079 whitest white,” the Japanese super sports car is the sole unit allocated to the Philippines and is estimated to have a price tag of over P40 million. Unfortunately for those who are just starting to save up, this one's already been spoken for. Still, you can catch a glimpse of this rare masterpiece in the flesh at its temporary home in Lexus Manila's showroom at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

    “We want to share this rare and priceless automobile with the discerning public. Our doors will be open to showcase the LFA, the ultimate testament to everything that Lexus is capable of,” explains Lexus Manila Chairman, Mr. Alfred Ty.

    The aptly named LFA - which stands for Lexus Fuji Apex - is the pinnacle of Lexus' performance engineering. “The LFA is a thoroughbred supercar unlike any other before it. Astonishingly lightweight, powerful and balanced, it is engineered to achieve one single goal - to deliver a truly supreme driving experience,” shares LFA Chief Engineer, Mr. Haruhiko Tanahashi about his masterpiece, which took 11 years in the making.

    Borrowing from Toyota's Formula One technology, this hand-built rear wheel-drive supercar sits on a lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) chassis. It's powered by a compact 560 horsepower 4.8L V10 that revs up to 9,000 rpm and equipped with a 6-speed Automatic Sequential Gearbox (ASG). Better hold on tight because it’s capable of launching from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and should reach a top speed of 325 km/h if the road permits. But one of its most outstanding attributes is its harmonically tuned exhaust note that mimics the scream of a Formula One car. It’s the “roar of an angel,” as Tanahashi calls it.....
