There’s not a lot to dislike about the Lexus LFA, apart from maybe the lack of cupholders. That screaming V10 with super-low inertia, the total single-mindedness, the outright nerdiness that went into its every gram – it’s a modern legend.
Lexus has brought it back to our attention with this new art car, designed for a display at the 24 Hours of Spa endurance race this weekend. The asymmetrical black artwork is meant to express a sense of movement echoing the fluidity of current society.
We know nothing about art so we won’t pretend to know whether the Portuguese artist, Pedro Henriques, has achieved his goal or not. What we do know is that this car would look absolutely superb bashing around the famous Spa circuit.
As things stand, though, Lexus fans will have to make do with the GT3-spec RC F coupe competing in the official Blancpain GT Series race. RC F number 14 won the six-hour race at Paul Ricard in France earlier in the season and will be hoping for a repeat performance.
Don’t forget there might still be a few brand new, unregistered LFAs out there somewhere…
