Lexus LFA SuperGT 2010

Lexus LFA SuperGT 2010


Unofficial Lexus LFA SuperGT contender rendered


Take a look at the field of 2010 SuperGT competitors and something's amiss. Nissan's been campaigning its new GT-R in the series for two years and Honda recently revealed the HSV-010 before its inaugural run in the series this May. What's missing? A new competitor from Toyota.

Jyuichi Wakisaka and Andre Lotterer took the overall GT500 win in the team's Lexus SC430 last year, but that model is not long for this world, so it's just a matter of time before Toyota fields a new car in the series. So what's set to take the SC430's place? The answer's obvious: the Lexus LFA.

Although Toyota's yet to confirm the LFA's entrance (we're expecting an announcement later this year), Iain Chandler, a skilled 3D artist hailing from Australia, has rendered a GT500-class LFA, complete with six sets of livery. While it's far from official it's a pretty good indication of what to expect when Toyota finally pulls the trigger, and Lotterer seems to approve – he posted the images on his site.

photoshopping a guesstimation of a Super GT car is futile....since it'll probably be wrong..

futile maybe, but it still looks nice.

I only did it for my own enjoyment, I honestly couldn't care less how wrong it is ...in any case, I dont think Andre Lotterer would have taken interest in my images if there was a real SuperGT LFA, because if there was, he would have definitely driven it in test sessions by now

They are still running the SC this year I think. Though I too would be interested to see if Toyota brings the LFA to play...

I don't think they look that bad. It would look stupid to make a car look like a racer and then have normal lights.
