When companies like Lexus try to take on Ferrari, vehicles like the LFA are the result. Packed with race car technology from bumper to fender, the full size vehicle boasts 553 horsepower and a lightweight body of all carbon fiber. Its production ended after just two years and only 500 vehicles ever made it into consumer’s hands. What was the main reason for this vehicle's limited run? The loud and powerful Lexus LFA did not fit with the quiet luxury that typifies the Lexus brand. This high performance version, while beloved, seemed out of sync with branding that took decades to build.
Now, unless you want to go to war at an auction, the only way to own one of these rare vehicles is by purchasing this Tamiya scale model car kit. The replica is 7.4 inches long when assembled and features an accurate reproduction of the LFA’s aerodynamic shape and stunningly-luxurious interior. In addition, the 1/24 scale plastic replica offers a faithfully reproduced engine, metal-plated parts, synthetic rubber tires, and a variety of photo-etched parts. In terms of options, builders can choose from a variety of rear wing shapes, an open or closed hood, and whether or not to retract the rear wings. Pick up this charming brand-contradiction today!
