Late last year, Toyota confirmed that development of its $225,000 Lexus LF-A supercar would continue on despite the lack of any sort of production time line. The supercar has seen race duty already, having competed in last year's 24 Hours of Nurburgring in Germany, and now the same platform has been chosen to help the automaker show that it's got fashion sense as well. A totally crystallized exterior will grace the LF-A when it goes on display during Fashion Week in Milan, showing off the car's fancy drivetrain components in the process.
The LF-A has been seen in concept form so many times already that spicing things up with a transparent exterior, in effect showcasing that impressive 5.0L V10 engine, strikes us as a good way to keep people interested in the car while Lexus delays its introduction in preparation for better economic times.
