CEC one of Los Angeles's main car tuners has just announced a partnership with Lexus North America that involves developing a tuning program for the Lexus LFA.
While there will be only 3 modified LFAs, each one will feature an army of enhancements created on the specific needs of each customer.
For Lexus, the current LFA is the third car that bears the LF designation and it was introduced for the first time at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. Some of the main features of this supercar are the ultra light carbon fiber reinforced polymer body and the 4.8 liter V10 engine capable of 412 kW. Actually the car accelerates so fast that an analog tachometer needle could not accurately track the LFA's engine evolution, so a digital one was mounted.
Now, back to the CEC tuning involvement, because Lexus LFA is a state of the art car, the LA based company will mainly work on aesthetics and the only major technical tweak will be a 10 hp increase in engine performance and a trimmed shift time of about 15 of a second.
Quite remarkable, the three tuned out LFA's may well enough be the rarest and more expensive Lexus ever manufactured and sold worldwide.
