Supercar Blondie is ahead of the line with Lexus LFA successor

LOS ANGELES: YouTuber Supercar Blondie has something to crow about. She has been given first access to the Electrified Sport concept car that is set to be the successor to the Lexus LFA.

In a video that has drawn over 1 million views since it was posted on Aug 17, the celebrity made an entrance with a Toyota forklift to "drag" a crate into a warehouse here to unpack the all-electric supercar.

Australian Alexandra Mary Hirschi aka Supercar Blondie then performed a walkaround of the car, which made its public debut in June at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed in Britain.

The swoopy coupe features some design cues of the LFA that was motivated by a naturally aspirated 4.8-litre V10 engine making 553hp. Lexus ended production of the LFA in 2012.

But the as yet unnamed successor is expected to offer up to 800hp with a 0-100kph sprint in just over 2s.

The interior has been blacked out as much of the details have yet to be worked out but a simulated manual gearbox is rumoured to be in the works for the two-seat supercar.
