Lexus reveals one-off LFA Art Car

Another day, another chance to gawp at a special V10 Japanese supercar

Lexus has enlisted the services of a Portuguese artist to scrawl all over one of its rarest ever cars. A supercar at that, too. Ladies and gentlemen, the very first Lexus LFA Art Car has arrived.

It’s been commissioned to honour both Lexus’ ten-year anniversary of its ‘F’ performance arm, and the Spa 24hrs premiere for the Emil Frey Lexus Racing team (who’ll be fielding a RCF GT3 this weekend).

We’re told the special livery “merges the instantly recognisable lines of the most iconic Lexus supercar” – check – “with an organic pattern expressing the feeling of movement and constant evolution.” Err, yeah, check.

The Portuguese artist in question is a man named Pedro Henriques, who had this to say: “The lines in the drawings follow this feeling of going everywhere and never stopping, a progressive life.

“I wanted to reach an organic feeling by using handmade material and liquid lines in the elements spread through the car. By doing this I hope to express a feeling where the car becomes a less defined shape, in constant mutation in its movement,” he added.

This LFA Art Car will be at Spa, during this Saturday’s track parade just before the 24hr race kicks off. Now, we’re big fans of the LFA – a V10 Japanese supercar that’s serviced ‘like a Le Mans racer’ (more on that here), but what do you reckon of this artistic rendition?

Let us know below…
