Car­bon fi­bre gets nod

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Prestige -

THE Lexus LF-A su­per­car will have an all-car­bon fi­bre body when it’s re­vealed in pro­duc­tion form at the Tokyo Mo­tor Show. Alu­minium was con­sid­ered for the V10 speed ma­chine but re­jected be­cause of cost. The car­bon-fi­bre re­search was done in-house. Toy­ota will also be re­spon­si­ble for man­u­fac­tur­ing the body, just as Mercedes-Benz AMG will with its com­ing SLS ‘‘gull­wing’’.
