New Lexus LFA Art Car design to be unveiled at Spa
LFA with special bodywork design marking tenth anniversary of Lexus’ ‘F’ performance models will be revealed at Spa 24-hours this weekend
The design of the Lexus LFA Art Car, which celebrates ten years of Lexus’ ‘F’ performance models, will be revealed at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend.
The LFA is already one of the rarest supercars in the world, with just 500 hand-crafted examples ever built. And one model among them is being used as a canvas for a new artwork to celebrate the decade milestone of the F brand.

The LFA Art Car will be revealed at the Spa-Francorchamps race circuit in Belgium, where the RC F GT3 coupé – one of the latest F generation – will make its debut in the Spa 24-hours race on the Blancpain GT racing calendar.
The car’s bodywork design has been created by Portuguese artist Pedro Henriques; rendered in black and white, it merges with the LFA’s lines and shape.
Henriques said of the design: ‘My inspiration was the idea of fluidity that’s present in contemporary life, where things are in constant movement and it’s hard to freeze anything.
‘The lines follow this sense of going everywhere and never stopping: a progressive life. I wanted to reach an organic feeling by using hand-made material and liquid lines in the elements spread throughout the car. By doing this I hope to express a feeling of the car becoming a less defined shape, in constant mutation in its movement.’
This is not the first time Lexus has entered the world of art and design, as every year it showcases exhibits at Milan Design Week. This summer the brand has also opened a pop-up UX Art Space in Lisbon, featuring works by several artists including Henriques.

This 2005 Porsche 996 Turbo S Cabriolet Tiptronic is one of just 1500 Turbo S cars produced and we believe only 93 right-hand drive Cabriolets came to the UK, so this is a very rare beast, indeed. It’s an exciting one, too, as the S came as standard with the X50 Powerkit which raised power 30bhp to 450bhp, which gives a top speed of 190mph. This really is a supercar! To help cope with this power
