Could Lexus Trademark Mean Return of LFA?

Filings hint at supercar's return

  • Lexus has applied to renew the LFA trademark

  • This could come before a second-generation of the supercar

Lexus might be planning to launch another generation of the LFA supercar. It has worked to secure a renewed trademark for the brand, at least, which suggests that it could be making its return.

Drive Australia found the trademark filing from Lexus for the LFA badge. It was filed in late August and was filed in the U.S., Phillippines, Indonesia, and Israel. Yes, that’s an odd assortment, but we won’t pretend to understand the peculiarities of international trademark law.

The Lexus LFA was the company’s first and so far only supercar. It was delivered with a screaming V10 engine unlike anything the company had done before or since.

Just last week, footage of a heavily camouflaged model surfaced. The car, which sounded like a screaming V8, was being tested on Japan’s Twin Ring Motegi circuit, and it’s thought that this could potentially be a new LFA.

A company exec also said earlier this year that a street-legal version of the Toyota GR GT3 race car would be going into production in the next few years. The same exec said it would be sold as a Lexus, making it just one more possibility to give the LFA badge a second go around.
