Lexus LF-A breaks Porsche GT2’s Nurburgring record (unofficially)

Everyone is so proud of the Nissan GT-R and its Nurburgring lap time of 7:38.54 seconds. Well, according to a new report by AutoExpress, another upcoming Japanese supercar has unofficially smashed the lap record of the Porsche GT2 at Germany’s Nurburgring.

The Lexus LF-A has lapped the famous Nurburgring in 7 minutes and 24 seconds, beating the Porsche GT2 by one second. The beastly Lexus is expected to have a 5.0 liter unit that produces 500 horsepower with a top speed of 200mph. A hybrid variant is also in the work that will use a engine similar to the LS600h.

Sources are also saying that the when Lexus puts the LF-A to production it will only build 26 units a month. No production date is set yet, but rumor has it that Lexus is looking to introduce the supercar to the market in 2009.
