Lexus LFA Code X Gets Larger 5.3L V10



Quote:
Hinting at what future developments may come from the Japanese luxury brand, Lexus today debuted a wild new LFA Code X model at the Tokyo Auto Salon with an even larger engine.

With the standard-issue supercar already boasting a potent 552 hp 4.8-liter V10 engine, this new test mule gets an extra half-liter displacement bump to 5.3-liters. No details have been provided on how much the power increase would be for the new engine, but Lexus has said output has been better tuned to deliver quicker Nurburgring lap times.

The car itself is built by Toyota motorsports partner Gazoo Racing, which has run several LFA race cars at the legendary Nurburgring 24 Hour race over the year and will once again campaign cars at this year’s event.

The LFA Code X, says Toyota, is an “enhanced sports car research vehicle” and, “has been created to enable study of future sports car technologies.”

Those technologies will be put to the test when the car competes at this year’s Nurburgring 24 Hour race alongside another LFA race car and one of the team’s Toyota GT86 race cars.
