The first full public outing of the Lexus LFA equipped with Nurburgring Package will take place at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. Lexus just released a bunch of new photos and details of this special edition.
As if the standard Lexus LFA is weak or doft, the Nurburgring Pack will make it harder and more track-focused. It features additional aerodynamic elements, lowered suspension and engine revisions. Mind you, that engine revision is not very deep and results in just a mere 10 bhp increase in power from V10 engine to 562bhp, thus enabling the car for a 0 to 62 mph sprint of 3.7 seconds. In terms of handling modifications, the package features suspension tuning and a 10mm reduction in the ride height. Exclusive mesh-type wheels are introduced, fitted with dedicated high-grip tyres.
The reason they call it the Nurburgring pack is because of the car’s commitment to the Nürburgring 24 Hours race. The LFA has been basically developed in that race track and spent years and years in there either testing or racing. 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.
You can have the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package in 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 fibre centre console and door trims, with carbon fibre sports seats finished in Alcantara. The car featured in the press images you see here is the orange which might not look very classy in the pictures, but it’s actually quite cool in the real world!
Lexus is also offering one-to-one driving tuition from a Nürburgring chief instructor and a year’s pass to enjoy their car on the famous Nordschleife circuit for customers who specify the package. That sounds like a generous offer, but you have take into account that the basic LFA is bloody expensive, and so is the Nurburgring package! So you can actually expect way more than that.
