After all the leaked reports, Lexus today officially announced the details on its Nurburgring edition of the new Lexus LFA supercar.
“The new Nurburgring package provides additional aerodynamic features and technical revisions that improve handling and downforce without compromising the exceptional speed and acceleration that are central to the LFA”s driving character,” Lexus said in a statement. “Greater downforce, essential to peak track performance, has been gained through revisions and additions to several of the LFA”s CFRP components, including a larger front spoiler, side fin-type spoilers and a new fixed rear wing.”
Power still comes from the mid-front-mounted 4.8L V10 engine, but power has been increased to 562-hp (base LFA makes 552-hp) and gearshift times have been cut to just .15 seconds. Lexus also made some handling modifications including sports tuning of the suspension and mesh-type wheels shod with dedicated high-grip tires.
Only 50 units of the 500 limited production run of the LFA will be made with the Nurburgring Package. Buyers of the Nurburgring Package will also receive a one-year driving pass to the track.
