We were left hanging yesterday with a ton of pictures of Lexus' brand new LF-A Roadster Concept, but no information to go along with them. Now Lexus has filled us in by releasing information and rather vague specifications on the car, although it's nothing we wouldn't have guessed. The LF-A Roadster is essentially based on its coupe brother that first made its debut back in 2005 in Detroit. A revised version was also shown in Detroit last year. Power comes from a V10 under 5.0 liters with something north of 500 horsepower, and shifting is done via a sequential transmission with paddle shifters. A significant change to the Roadster version, besides not having a fixed roof, is the retractable rear wing that adjusts according to the vehicle's speed.
By continuing with the LF-A series, we can only hope that this means Lexus is still planning on making a production version. The only thing left to choose would be if you'd rather have the coupe or the roadster. Viewing the beautiful live shots in the gallery below might just help you make up your mind. You can also follow the jump to view the official press release.
