The Lexus LF-A showed that the brand was not only capable of creating a supercar, but a competitive force to be feared. Now, Lexus seems to be acknowledging that it lacks the traction of its European competition in the supercar arena, an issue it is poised to address with the release of the Tokyo Edition.

The LF-A Tokyo Edition is set to debut at the Tokyo Motor Show later this year, fittingly. This comes on the heels of the special LF-A Nurburgring Edition, and will likely boast the same 4.8-liter V10 engine. For those of you are not aware, this demon sprints from 0-60 in a face-transforming 3.7 seconds and reaches speeds exceeding 200 miles per hour. The carbon fiber brakes are extraordinary, when I drove the LF-A at Homestead it could stop on a dime and spit out a nickel’s change.

The Tokyo Edition will offer some unique features to separate itself, including an unpainted carbon fiber roof and special rear spoiler. Once this special edition Lexus hits the market, it will cost around $430,000, which is about $50,000 more than its standard predecessor.
