Lexus LFA Successor Rumored To Launch As A Hybrid

22 Mar 2023

The Lexus LFA was a groundbreaking supercar that made its debut in 2010. It was a limited production vehicle that showcased the best of Lexus engineering and design, and it quickly became a sensation in the automotive world. Despite its short production run, the LFA left a lasting impression on car enthusiasts around the world. And now, rumors are swirling that Lexus is planning a successor to the LFA, which could launch as a hybrid before eventually morphing into an electric supercar.

According to various reports, the new Lexus supercar is being developed under the codename "Lexus LFA II." While details about the car are scarce, there are some rumors about what we can expect from the vehicle. One of the most prominent rumors is that the LFA II will launch as a hybrid. This is not surprising, as many automakers are turning to hybrid technology to improve the performance of their vehicles while also reducing emissions.

It is expected that the LFA II will use a hybrid powertrain that combines a gasoline engine with an electric motor. This will give the car impressive performance capabilities, as well as improved fuel efficiency. Some reports suggest that the car could produce as much as 800 horsepower, which would make it one of the most powerful cars on the market.

But the real excitement around the LFA II is the possibility that it could eventually become an electric supercar. This would make sense for Lexus, as the company has already made significant investments in electric vehicle technology. In fact, Lexus currently sells a range of hybrid and electric vehicles, including the popular UX 300e electric SUV.

If the rumors are true, the LFA II could be the flagship vehicle in Lexus's electric lineup. It is rumored that the car could be designed with a modular platform that allows for a range of different powertrain options, including fully electric. This would allow Lexus to adapt to changing market conditions and customer preferences.

Latest project from CALLUM to make global public debut at Concours on Savile Row

CALLUM SKYE, the first own brand vehicle fully developed in-house by the British design and engineering business CALLUM, will be seen in public for the first time at Concours on Savile Row, London on 22-23 May 2024.

The pioneering, high-performance, all-wheel-drive, multi-terrain electric vehicle was announced in November 2023 to global critical acclaim. The first running prototype will be displayed outside Edward Sexton’s store throughout the free-to-attend event that celebrates the long history that car manufacturers and tailors share.

Engineered to offer an exhilarating and rewarding driving experience both on- and off-road, SKYE has been crafted to ensure the utmost capability, refinement and beauty for discerning adventurers. As an all-electric vehicle, it’s powered by a 42kWh battery with anticipated range of 170 miles, with the option to specify an ultra-fast charging battery for full charge in under ten minutes. Measuring 4,047mm in length and 1,900mm in width, and weighing just 1,150kg, it boasts sportscar performance with 0-60mph achieved in under four seconds.

“The CALLUM SKYE is bold, beautifully engineered and crafted with refinement and craftsmanship. The same can be said for the world-leading bespoke tailoring that exists on Savile Row. We can’t wait to see and hear the reactions of event visitors who will be the first to see SKYE in person,” says David Fairbairn, managing director, CALLUM. “Compact, capable and extremely beautiful, we’re confident that this representation of the SKYE exterior will turn heads, as we invite those interested in commissioning a CALLUM SKYE to reserve their build slot.”
