The $400k Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package Info Leaked
While the Nürburgring is known for speed and excitement, it seems Lexus isn’t. Despite the LFA’s sporting nature, Lexus has been moving at an ant’s pace when it comes to the release of the much-anticipated LFA Nürburgring package.
The Lexus LFA Nürburgring package is a massively expensive and insanely fast V10 powered monster that is at home, eating up other cars on the world famous German circuit for which it’s named. Lexus announced that they would only be creating 50 examples of this limited edition LFA and they have confirmed that it would be shown at the Geneva Motor Show next week.
With the Geneva Motor Show just days away, Lexus gave the world a little taste of what the LFA Nürburgring package is all about.
Under the hood is a V10 engine, just like the base LFA, but this version puts out ten more horses, but not for increased speed. The horsepower boost is to counteract the drag of that giant rear wing that will help keep the car stuck to the road at all times.
The Lexus LFA Nürburgring package can be had in white, black or orange and Lexus has recently confirmed that the interior can be white, black and red, or black and purple for those that need the Liberace treatment. Yet, only in Europe will the automaker offer a full carbon-fiber interior.
The LFA Nürburgring will hit 62 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds, while shift times from the six-speed sequential transmission are around 0.15 seconds. To increase handling, Lexus has dropped the ride height by 10 millimeters and equipped each wheel with a special mesh.
The base Lexus LFA is around $375,000, which is quite a lot, but this special edition model will add $75,000 to that price tag. If buyers go for the matte black finish that’s another $20,000, making this one of the most expensive vehicles in the world.
