The Lexus crazy folks over at LexusEnthusiast have uncovered a Japanese story about a possible Nürburgring Edition of the new LFA supercar, adding credibility to earlier reports that a more track-focused model is on the way. The extra high performance model is reportedly named after the world famous race track/public road where the LFA underwent extensive testing and which is used as a benchmark to rate all high-performance vehicles.
Upgrades to the LFA Nürburgring Edition are to include a front splitter, a large rear spoiler (fixed), a stiffer suspension, lighter weight wheels, stickier tires and a slight bump of 10-hp. This would bring the LFA’s total engine output to 562-hp from its 4.8-liter V10.
The model will be offered in just four colors: black, matte black, the orange color seen above and another color that was lost in Google translation.
Lexus has yet to confirm details of a Nürburgring Edition LFA, but we’re excited about the possibility, although we’re a bit surprised the carbon chassis creation is being eclipsed so quickly.
