Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package

Lexus has introduced the Nürburgring performance package for the LFA supercar, a special racetrack-edition with new aerodynamic elements, power increased to more than 562 hp and gearshift times cut to 0.15 seconds. It will be produced in just 50 units.


In celebration of its LFA supercar taking on the challenge of the Nürburgring 24 Hours race in May, Lexus has launched a new performance package designed to appeal to track driving enthusiasts.

Lexus LFA Nurburgring PackageThe package provides additional aerodynamic features and technical revisions that improve handling and downforce without compromising the speed and acceleration.

Greater downforce has been gained through revisions and additions to several of the LFA’s CFRP components, including a larger front spoiler, side fin-type spoilers and a new fixed rear wing.

Maximum power from the mid-front-mounted 4.8-litre V10 engine has been increased by 10bhp to more than 562bhp and gear shifts in the six-speed sequential transmission have been cut to just 0.15 seconds.

Thanks to these changes, nought to 62mph acceleration in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 202mph are maintained, in spite of the extra drag created by the new aerodynamic elements.

Handling modifications include sports tuning of the suspension and mesh-type wheels shod with dedicated high-grip tires.

Just 50 LFA will be available with the Nürburgring package, within the car’s strictly limited global production run of 500 examples.

If they wish, customers will be able to take advantage of individual driving instruction on the legendary Nordschleife circuit from the Nürburgring’s chief instructors. They will also receive a one-year driving pass to the track.
