Default Lexus Bids Farewell to the LFA as the Last Example Rolls Off the Production Line

I thought they stopped producing these awhile back.

A little over three years after Lexus revealed its first ever supercar to the world and two years since it began deliveries on December 15, 2010, the Japanese automaker has produced the 500th and last example of its V10-powered LFA.
The final model was a white 562bhp LFA with the Nürburgring Package and it left the LFA works, which is Lexus' dedicated production facility at the Motomachi Plant, Aichi Prefecture in Japan, on Friday, December 14.

Commenting on the end of production, LFA chief engineer, Haruhiko Tanahashi said:

"I’ve lived and breathed supercars for the past decade. Specifically one supercar, LFA. Very few people have the opportunity we had to create a world-class supercar from a blank sheet of paper."

Lexus said that a dedicated team of around 170 hand-picked takumi workers were involved in parts manufacturing, vehicle assembly and painting of the LFA, which was produced at the rate of just one car per day.
