Lexus LF-A Roadster sounds like a Formula One Grand Prix
The Lexus LF-A Roadster Concept – which starred at motor shows in Tokyo and Detroit – has rocked the Melbourne Motor Show. Powered by a V10 engine delivering over 360kW of power, the LF-A Roadster sounds like a Formula One Grand Prix car and probably looks better than many modern F1 racers. It certainly casts-off the dowdy image some associate with Toyota’s prestige/luxury brand.

With two large air intake ducts located ahead of the rear wheels, you could be fooled into thinking the LF-A Roadsteris rear engined. In fact only the radiators are located aft (for better weight distribution) and the engine is mounted ‘front-mid’ – in front of the passenger compartment, but behind the front axle.

Drive to the transaxle is via a torque tube and propeller shaft to a transaxle (combined differential and gearbox). The torque tube is a structural member that adds rigidity to the drive train and chassis while also reducing vibration.

The bodywork is a combination of lightweight carbon fibre and aluminium used for high rigidity even without a roof.
