The V10 might be found in the LFA II. Now the LFA X Code will run @ VLN 2014, the V10 now has a displacement of 5.3l compared to normal 4.8l.

I also read that it will be a hybrid power plant, which is unfortunate.

What's the LFA X Code and what's VLN 2014? I hadn't realized that Toyota is making a successor the LFA at all.
