Lexus is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the LFA, a spectacular supercar that went into limited production at the end of 2010.

Although the Lexus LFA is officially 10 years old, its story began in the early 2000s as an R&D project, with chief engineer Harahiko Tanashi given the freedom to act and the opportunity to work with new materials and processes.

The luxury car brand Toyota completed the first prototype in 2003, and the following year it was put on the Nurburgring.

The world was given a first glimpse of LFA through a study presented in 2005 by NAIAS, followed by an updated version two years later.
