Lexus has ceased production of its LFA supercar, completing the planned production run of just 500 units.

Number 500 is a white example with the track-focused Nürburgring Package - fitting given the role the famous circuit played in the LFA’s development.

A Nürburgring LFA clocked a 7:14.64 lap time on its namesake’s Nordschleife in 2011, the fastest ever by a road-registered series production car.

The labour-intensive super coupe was built at a rate of just 20 units per month, with production ending exactly two years after commencing on December 15, 2010 - as promised at the LFA’s launch.

Despite this two-year production run, the Lexus halo model famously consumed nearly a decade of development, and competed in the Nurburgring 24 hour whilst still a disguised development mule.

"I’ve lived and breathed supercars for the past decade. Specifically one supercar, LFA. Very few people have the opportunity we had to create a world-class supercar from a blank sheet of paper," LFA chief engineer Haruhiko Tanahashi said.

Just 10 examples of the 412kW/480Nm 4.8 litre V10-powered LFA made it to Australia, with a MRP of $700,000.

Lexus promises that the technology developed for the composite-heavy supercar will be used in future Lexus models - also justifying the 170 staff at the LFA’s dedicated Motomachi Plant in Japan.

What will follow the LFA at the pointy end of the Lexus line-up? The carmaker isn't saying, but reports over the past year suggest its next halo model will be "twice the car" the LFA was.

With the likes of the Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari's upcoming Enzo replacement to consider, we suspect the next LFA will need to be three times better.
