Earlier this year in June, 67 year old, Hiromu Naruse, died in a collision involving the Lexus LFA Nurburgring prototype. The very respected test driver lost control of the LFA and swerved into the oncoming lane and collided with a BMW driven by two BMW test-drivers.
Lexus has now released a video paying tribute to Naruse.
“It is with great honor that we recognize Lexus’ chief test driver, Hiromu Naruse for pursuing more than 47 years of racing inspiration” Lexus said in a statement. “Naruse helped inspire and develop nearly every iconic racing vehicle created by Toyota. Just as he guided Lexus in our relentless pursuit of perfection … we thank him for allowing us to be part of his.”
