Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package UPDATE - Web Exclusive

Lexus has released more information ahead of its Geneva Auto Show debut.

Feb 23, 2011

We have already previewed the Lexus LFA with Nürburgring Package in the News pages at www.eurotuner.com, but now the manufacturer has released more information ahead of its Geneva Auto Show debut.

The car has been built to celebrate the LFA’s hat-trick of class wins at the Nürburgring 24 Hour race. It includes an array of aerodynamic features, suspension adjustments and revisions to the 4.8-liter V10 engine that give the supercar a more track-focused profile. Shown in public for the first time at the Geneva motor show, the performance option is available on just 50 of the 500 cars that will be built. These versions will be crafted during 2012, the second full year of LFA production.

To sharpen the car’s circuit performance further, the Nürburgring Package introduces modifications and additions to several key carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) components to increase downforce at high speed. These include a larger front spoiler, fin-type side spoilers, a canard fin and a fixed rear wing.

To ensure the LFA maintains its 0-62mph acceleration time of 3.7-second, in spite of the increased drag, the V10 engine has been revised to increase maximum power by 10hp to 562hp. Shift times in the six-speed sequential transmission are just 0.15 seconds. In terms of handling modifications, the package features suspension tuning and a 10mm reduction in ride height. Exclusive mesh-type wheels are introduced, fitted with high-grip tires.

Exterior color choices are restricted to matte black, black, white or orange, with interiors finished in black and red, black and purple and all-black. Cars delivered in Europe will feature a carbon fiber center console and door trims, with carbon fiber sports seats finished in Alcantara.

Customers who specify the package will also be offered one-to-one driving tuition from a Nürburgring chief instructor and a year’s pass to enjoy their car on the famous Nordschleife circuit.
