Lexus LFA to be available in track-spec trim level

Lexus LFA

The new 2011 Lexus LFA will be available in a track-tuned trim that will be stripped out and built to track specification.

An insider confirmed that the track-spec Lexus LFA won’t have an upgraded powertrain or engine.

“The LFA is such a bespoke machine that buyers can specify pretty much what they want,” said a company source. “If they choose to ask for it to be stripped out and built with track use in mind, there’s no reason why it won’t be possible.”

Lexus said it has no plans to run the LFA in a race series.

Refresher: Power for the Lexus LFA comes from a 4.8L V10 engine that makes 552-hp with a maximum torque of 354 lb-ft. Mated to a 6-speed Automated Sequential Gearbox, the LFA goes from 0-60 mph with a time of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph.
