We previously have an official video of the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition lapping the Nurburgring Nordschleife in a blistering 7:22.85. While that was as official as it gets, a new report comes via Twitter saying that the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition has topped its previous lap time, returning a quick 7:14.

The news comes via Twitter accounts of Chris Harris and Lexus Europe. Lexus driver Akira Iida posted a 7:14 lap time around the Nordschleife.
