Lexus LFA Wins SP8 Class in 35th DMV Nürburgring Race


Lexus LFA @ Nürburgring

Two Lexus LFAs and an IS F competed in this weekend’s 35th DMV 4 hours race at Nürburgring, here are the results:

  • LFA #128 – 17th place (First in SP8 Class)
  • IS F #137 – 71st place (Fourth in SP8 Class)
  • LFA #127 – 105th place (Fifth in SP8 Class)

Update: The full results can be found on the VLN website.

Another SP8 class victory for the LFA, and another sign that we can expect good things in May’s Nürburgring 24h race. LFA #127 had a planned shock absorber change that should explain its late place—here’s a video of that LFA on the track:

But best of all, TLE friend Thomas Biesenbach sent in these absolutely awesome photos of the LFAs & IS F from the race:

  1. Look at that mean-looking machine hitting everything apex with its wide fender flares covering its sticky set of tires. Man those extra lights heighten the aggressiveness a lot.

    17th place is pretty good!

    The IS F looks ricey LOL

  2. the IS F’s trunk sits lower than it should be..?

  3. It still just breaks my heart that even if I could afford one, I can’t have an LFA. Exclusivity never held any appeal to me.If a car is really great,it won’t be less so by others having one too.

  4. Where can I find the official ranking? 17th place is great but what about other cars. How does the LFA stack up?

  5. The thing is SP8 class is not like the special SP9 class in which the leaders and race winner was apart of. The SP8 class is close to production engine size up to 6 liters. I think it’s 4 to 6 liter engine size? The cars are not fully prepared race cars as the class is ‘close to production’. SP9 class is GT3. Those are fully prepared race cars like the R8LMS and GT3 RSR along with the BMW M3GT2. So 17th place is very good considering the LFA is around 3000+ pounds compared to the SP9 cars 2500-2600 lbs.

  6. JVX:Where can I find the official ranking? 17th place is great but what about other cars. How does the LFA stack up?

    Thanks for reminding me—I’ve added tilps’ link to the final results to the post.
