Lexus has presented its LF-A in roadster form, although it remains a concept car at present.

Based on the aluminium and carbonfibre body of the LF-A coupe, the two-seater is also powered by the same 500bhp 5.0-litre V10 engine, which is mid-mounted.

No 0-60mph times have been given, but Lexus admits it will top 200mph.

Two rear-mounted radiators cool the engine and are fed air through ducts just above the rear wheel areas. Their positioning also helps maintain optimum weight distribution.

Before you get too excited, though, take a deep breath: there's no news on whether it will be built.

The Lexus GS is quiet and comfortable, but finds itself up against some strong competition. The GS F is interesting, but hampered by a poor gearbox.
