The front looks like an Enzo cross bred with a Gallardo.

The whole rear end of the last pic looks like it borrowed a lot of the G35 Coupe's rear styling cues.

My bad.

Someone should take off the GT-R pic to avoid confusion.

Future Products Lexus - - By AUTOMOTIVE NEWS - - Source: Autoweek

LF-A: Lexus' two-passenger, high-performance sports car will be unveiled at the same time as the Japan Formula One race moves to Toyota's home, Fuji Speedway, in the fall of 2007. It is likely that a big 500-hp V-8 will be the powerplant, as a V-8 has weight and packaging advantages over the all-but-dead V-10 program. It would arrive in the United States in spring 2008.

It would make sense to throw in a V8 ... F1 is going that route so might as well use some of that technology into the LF-A. Plus it'll probably be cheaper on the whole to use a V8 than V10. We all know what Toyota is like with profits & cost-cutting ...

Definitely out of my price range (unless I hit the lotto before the release of this car ...)

Post Spy pics

So, is it LF-A or LF-H...? Make up your mind, Toyota!
Or is this a whole new thread? I'll let the mods decide.

That thing looks crazy ... I'd say it would have justified making yet another F&F sequel.

that is some crazy looking stuff. Me likey.

GT-R, LF-A, NSX .... we're missing a representative from Mitsu of old to rekindle the spirit of the 3000GT VR4 but other than that, it looks like the Japanese supercars of old are posied for return and battle.

What a great time to be a car enthusiast. Wouldn't be a bad time to win the lottery either

The Skyline/G35 is a sedan/coupe. I think you may mean the GTR. Assuming that's what you mean, I disagree. The looks like the devil on wheels.

Lexus press release...

The LF-A sports-car concept was originally shown at the 2005 NAIAS to express a bold new direction in styling for the Lexus brand. The goals for the new LF-A are no different than they were with the original concept: To build a supercar with world-class performance that is uniquely Lexus.

As with all new Lexus vehicles, the styling of the LF-A is rooted in a design direction called L-finesse. The concept of L-finesse was used to shape and detail the original LF-A, and it was used to reshape, redetail and redefine this latest version. Lexus has further refined the styling of the new LF-A to enhance its exotic nature with a greater use of curved surfaces and interesting details.

The running gear of the LF-A is just as it was with the original, powered by a high-revving 500-plus horsepower V10 engine. Its front mid-engine placement, along with a rear-mounted transaxle and rear-mounted radiators, allows for excellent weight distribution. The horsepower, superior aerodynamics, and revised styling makes a top speed of 200 mph not only possible but probable.

An "F" logo, indicating the vehicle's status as a part of the new "F" marque, is located on each front fender.

"The first LF-A was a pure concept, but one that we went so far as to conduct engineering analysis on," said Carter. "This latest concept is much closer to a vehicle that we would bring to market, and one in which we will be gauging consumer interest."

ooooh, looking much better than the orginal concept. The LEDs out front are strange. I think it would look better more parallel with the lights instead of angled like that. Looks better than the Acura Sports Concept IMO.

that is BEAUTIFUL! Amazing! I absolutely love it, and I usually dislike Lexus!

9000rpm redline. Some of the best, modern exotic car styling I've ever seen. Awesome interior. This thing is

Fantastic job Lexus/Toyota. Build it just the way it is.

EDIT: I think I might just prefer this over Acura's next gen exotic car concept.

This latest concept is definitely an improvement, but I like the NSX concept better.

The front end of the LF-A reminds me of Predator's mask:
