Carbon fibre gets nod
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’’.
