Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition Makes Premier Delivery in Europe

Nurburgring

The Japanese supercar has made its way to Europe at long last.

The Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition has indeed been delivered to a very lucky customer in the UK. The Japanese supercar is already in the hands of a select few in the U.S. and this particular orange model is the second we have seen in this color of the special editions. A black variant and white variant have also been spotted previously. A limited run of 50 Nurburgring Edition units will be built (side note: only 500 standard LFAs will be produced), each packing the stock's 4.8-liter V10 tuned for an extra 11hp.

That brings total output to 562hp. The extra power comes in addition to aerodynamic styling changes, new tires and a modified tranny and suspension set-up for maximum track performance. Performance numbers are quite impressive, with 0-62mph timed at a rapid 3.7 seconds and top speed quoted as 202mph. The changes have allowed the LFA Nurburgring to lap the famed German track in an impressive time of only 7:14.64. That is good for a fifth all-time on the Nordschleife, beating such impressive models as the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and the Corvette C6 ZR1, amongst others.

Lexus is throwing in a year-long subscription to the Nurburgring race track in Germany along with a free driving course to those who purchase the LFA Nurburgring Edition, not too shabby for those with a cool $445,000 lying around.
