One-Off Yellow Lexus LFA Roadster Pops Up in Tokyo

Three years out of production, with brand new untouched examples still sitting on lots, and the legend of the Lexus LFA continues to grow. The next chapter is currently unfolding in the car's birthplace, Japan, where a rare LFA Roadster in a bright yellow paint job popped up at Media Ambition Tokyo, an exhibit that is "connecting Tokyo to the world, the past to the future, and art to technology." The car is featured in a visual and audio installation called "1,220," which refers to the 1,220 mm height (48 in.) of the LFA. Visitors sit in a small space below a screen to witness an array of  images in "an attempt to have visitors experience that journey of light attaining meaning across a distance that represents the height of the Lexus LFA."

The original concept that debuted in 2008 was red and had a few different styling cues. The second that popped up was white. Considering production of the 500 examples ended back in 2012, there are two ways this car was created. Either Lexus built it and has kept it under wraps until now, or this is the result of an aftermarket customization. We've reached out to Lexus but have yet to hear back.
