DESTINATION UK FOR EUROPE’S FIRST LEXUS LFA WITH NÜRBURGRING PACKAGE
A British customer is the first in Europe to take delivery of the Lexus LFA supercar with a Nürburgring Package, one of just 50 examples that will be sold.
Finished in orange with a black interior, the model’s exclusivity is matched by its track-focused performance and hand-crafted quality. Building on the speed and handling of the LFA, the Nürburgring Package adds a number of elements that increase downforce for sharper circuit performance, without compromising out-and-out speed.
It includes a front spoiler made from CFRP (carbon fibre reinforced plastic), a strong and lightweight advanced composite material, plus special mesh-type wheels with dedicated, high-grip tyres to improve manoeuvrability and stability. Maximum power from the LFA’s 4.8-litre V10 engine has been increased from 552 to 562bhp (411 to 420kW), maintaining the car’s 3.7-second nought to 62mph acceleration time and 202mph top speed.
The package has handsomely demonstrated its worth: last year Lexus undertook a performance check with professional driver Akira Iida driving the LFA around the Nürburgring’s famous Nordschleife – a feat he accomplished in a new class record-breaking time. Customers who buy the LFA with the Nürburgring Package will likewise be guided on how to fully exploit their car’s performance with individual tuition on the circuit from one of the Nürburgring’s chief instructors.
