Geneva 2011: Lexus LFA Nurburgring World Premiere
Coinciding with the reveal, Lexus has announced complete details on the Nurburgring Edition kit, with a large front splitter, cannards and a massive rear spoiler.
Output from the 4.8-liter V10 engine has been upped just 10-hp to 570-hp total, helping the carbon monocoque machine hit 62-mph in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 202-mph (slightly lower than the standard model due to the massive downforce generated by the rear spoiler).
Additional upgrades include quicker shift times, a returned suspension, a lowered suspension (10mm) and special wheels and tires.
The Nurburgring edition will be available in Matte Black, Black, White or Orange, and the interior can be had in Black and Red, Black and Purple or all Black. Plus, all Nurburgring editions get added carbon fiber interior bits, plus carbon racing seats.
