Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition Headed to SEMA

Believe it or not, the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition has never been seen at an American auto show. That will all change in the next few weeks however as the Japanese automaker is bringing its special edition LFA model to the 2012 SEMA Show.

The Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition has already clocked a 7:14 lap time at the Green Hell last year thanks to its 4.8-liter V10 engine that has been tweaked to push out 562 hp. Combined with its suspension and aerodynamic upgrades, the Nurburgring Edition LFA builds on an already incredible machine. Only 50 of the 500 LFAs built were Nurburgring Edition models, making a rare car even rarer.

Priced at $445,000 the tweaks and modifications made to the LFA carry a $70,000 premium. But owners receive more than just the car: training sessions at the Nurburgring, one-night stay at the Lindner Congress and Motorsport Hotel Nurburgring, admission to an onsite amusement park, a Nurburgring jacket, and a one-year pass to the famous track.
