Believe it or not, it has been 10 years since the Lexus LFA was launched and while there are some low-mileage examples out for sale out there, only wealthy individuals can afford the Japanese automaker’s most famous performance model.

Good thing then there’s a way around that – well, sort of. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Lexus has launched a scale paper model of the supercar that can be made at home, which is not a bad way to spend some time during the holiday period.

There are four full-size Lexus LFA templates right below. The first is finished in white with a black roof, the second in orange, the third has a Gazoo Racing livery inspired by the LFA race car, and the fourth if finished in blue. Lexus recommends printing the template on an A3 sheet of paper to make construction easier and to give you a larger model. If you don’t have access to an A3 printer, A4 paper will work just fine.

In addition to paper, those want to create their own LFA will need some paper glue or double-sided tape and a pair of scissors.

Full instructions:

Step 1: Download a high-resolution PDF template of the model. There are four designs to choose from, each highlighting a different element of the LFA’s history. If you have the option, print the document inn A3 rather than A4 size, as this will make the construction easier and will give you a bigger model at the end.

Step 2: Cut out the templates, being careful not to leave off the tabs. For each of the following steps, you will need to fold and glue each of tabs to the relevant panel.

Step 3: Start gluing the individual parts together. Take the roof panels and attach the two windows.

Step 4: Build the front of the LFA using the two pieces provided. The third piece will be needed later.

Step 5: Create the four wheels and axles. Roll the black tires into wheel shapes, folding in the tabs, and then attaching the wheel hub. Create the axles by carefully folding the paper along the lines.

Step 6: Next, attach the rear to the sides of the car.

Step 7: Fold down the rear.

Step 8: Affix the top of the doors to the sides of the car. You can see in the picture that one of the doors has already been attached on the right-hand side.

Step 9: Prepare the underneath of the model. Cut the holes in the black tabs – this will allow the axles to run through the model. Then turn the model upside down. Fold the rear of the car and the holes upwards.

Step 10: Attach the sides of the car using the tabs on the rear and center of the underbody section.

Step 11: Attach the bonnet to the roof section. Then, working from rear to front, attach the roof to the tabs on the side of the car.

Step 12: At this point the LFA should start to take shape. Take one end of the axle and attach the wheel, push it through the holes in the model and attach the other wheel when done. Repeat this for the second axle and wheels.

Step 13: Add the additional front piece (referenced in step four) to the bottom. Then attach the front. If building the Nürburgring Edition or racing version, add the spoiler to the rear.

A New York man is lucky to be alive after spending more than 10 hours buried under 4 feet (1219 mm) of snow.

According to the New York State Police, 58 year old Kevin Kresen went off the side of the road during a recent snowstorm. While that’s bad enough, a snow plow came by and buried his car.

Kresen made a number of calls to 911 asking for assistance and officers responded. However, his car was buried under so much snow, they couldn’t locate it. Making matters even worse was the fact that the serpentine belt was broken, meaning Kresen was trapped without heat.

Thankfully, his luck changed the following morning as Sergeant Jason Cawley contacted Tioga County 911 to see if any emergency calls were pending from the snowstorm. He was informed about Kresen, so he started searching for him along State Route 17C in the town of Owego.

However, he was unsuccessful as the car was covered by the snow. Despite this, Cawley noticed “what appeared to be a row of mailboxes and waded through the snow to check the addresses.”

In a miraculous turn of events, Cawley hit the windshield of Kresen’s car while digging to check on the mailboxes. He then freed the man after being trapped in his car for more than ten hours. Following the rescue, Kresen was taken to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia and frostbite.

A number of companies are embracing electric vehicles and it appears Alpine could jump on the bandwagon.

In an interview with Automotive News Europe, Renault’s executive vice president of engineering suggested the company’s CMF-EV platform could be used to underpin high-performance electric vehicles from Alpine.

Details are limited, but Gilles Le Borgne confirmed Alpine is considering using the architecture. He also suggested Alpine EVs would have more powerful electric motors, but said it’s too early to talk about specifics.

The CMF-EV platform was developed with Nissan and will be used to underpin an assortment of upcoming electric vehicles including the production version of the Megane eVision concept.

The architecture was designed with flexibility in mind and it will reportedly be able to accommodate vehicles that measure between 157.5 inches (4,000 mm) and 185.0 inches (4,700 mm) long. To put that into perspective, the platform could underpin everything from the Zoe to the Megane.

The platform will reportedly be offered with three different battery packs that have capacities of 40 kWh, 60 kWh and 87 kWh. The mid-size battery is slated to allow for a range of 280 miles (450 km) in “mixed driving” or 186 miles (300 km) when traveling at highway speeds of 75 mph (120 km/h).

We’ll learn more next year, but Le Borgne suggested vehicles based on the architecture will be more expensive than their internal combustion counterparts as he doesn’t believe EVs will reach cost parity for at least another decade. That being said, battery prices are dropping and using the platform across the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance should help to reduce costs.
