Hydrogen is difficult to store, and vehicles running on hydrogen are machines of the future. We have been seeing such a statement in automobile magazines over the past 5 years. But it looks like those statements now need to be re-written as Toyota’s luxury wing is ready to roll out their Lexus LFA-h. Yes, this beast runs on hydrogen and is more powerful than their gasoline model.
As proof that Lexus is having what they need in creating hydrogen-powered supercar, the luxury division of Toyota released a 45 seconds long video.
The hydrogen-powered Lexus LFA goes 600 horsepower, around 48 horsepower more powerful than the standard LFA supercar which powered by gas. The hydrogen-powered Lexus LFA has no emission at all as the power consists of water and the emitted gas will be water vapour.
The video we have for you below, shows that the LFA supercar was brought to the desert where the roaring V10 support with the hydrogen-powered power plant cracked the dry soil.
Lexus began taking orders for the LFA supercar on October 23, 2009. Buyers were selectively chosen by Lexus in the second quarter of 2010. Production began in December 2010 as a 2011 model. Only 500 total LFA models will be made worldwide, with only 20 produced each month.
Each car will be custom ordered to the customer’s specifications, and will cost an estimated US$375,000, depending on options and customization. Following the LFA’s release at the Tokyo Motor Show, Lexus unveiled a website with a ‘LFA configurator’ which allowed users to select exterior and interior colors, brake caliper colors, seats, steering wheel leather, and other interior designs.
It is not yet confirmed that whether this car my go into production but the whole world is waiting for it.
