Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package to Debut at Geneva Auto Show


Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package Debuting in Geneva

The Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package will make its official debut next month as part of Lexus’ display at the Geneva Motor Show.

This amped-up $445,000 USD edition of the Lexus supercar will only be available on 50 of the 500 LFAs that are being built, and this exclusivity brings additional aerodynamic features and technical revisions to improve handling and downforce, increases engine output by 10bhp to 562bhp and speeds up gear shifts in the six-speed sequential transmission.

The Geneva Motor Show opens on March 3rd.

    Krew, I know this is a little off topic but have you heard anything about the upcoming auto shows? Will Lexus be showing us anything new, like a new GS or ES?

    Bombarded sounds a bit hostile.

    Lexus needs to do three crucial things. I am sure if they are smart, they will do these (I hope):

    1 – Tell how much weight reduction is on the ‘ring package
    2 – Make it official that LFA ‘ring edition has lapped the Nurburgring in only 7:18
    3 – Dedicate the car to Hiromu Naruse. The car Naruse died perfecting.

    Haha, fair enough — I wasn’t sure what else to call 15,000 unique visitors over a 5 hour period! :-)

    Nothing concrete, but we can probably expect something any time now. I’d say the timing’s about right with both the CT & LFAs arriving in dealerships — we need something else to look forward to! :-)

    #1 should be announced in March.

    #3 Agree x 1,000,000

    Your Dutch is near perfect. ;-) Do you have any clue were LFA nr.1 ended up?

    Nurburgring package LFA can lap the ring in 7:18 secs? Wow, what about the standard LFA time round the ring? Awsome track weapon made better!

    Lexus Europe said “in the low-7:20s for the standard LFA”.

    Some new eye and ear candy:

    The first ever demonstration of Lexus LFA launch control system off the line from 4000 rpm and then up to 260 KM/H (163 mph). Hitting 9500 rpm in every gear.

    0 – 260 km/h (163 mph) in aproximately 19 seconds. That is insanely fast!

    Somebody at lexus remembers the papaya orange Mclaren F1 in its standard GT colour scheme… The LFA’s engine would make Gordon Murray very very jealous.
