Short Video of the Lexus LFA AD-X Prototype


Lexus LFA AD-X Nürburgring

A short video clip of the Lexus LFA AD-X at the Nürburgring has shown up on Youtube, with only the briefest look at the prototype as it screams by.

According to the uploader, the entire track was closed for 10 minutes while the AD-X took its lap — could Lexus be going for a new Nürburgring record?

    I didn’t see an LFA, but I heard one.

    They’re not doing 180+ MPH there, and shutting down the track for no reason.
    They have something up their sleeve.  Stuff’s gonna come down…..

    Look at how it is accelerating uphill (30 degree) in 6th gear and hitting almost 300 km/h. The sounds is just insane. I reckon that is the scream of 10,000 + rpm.

    I still believe it is testing a new version of LFA, which is the extreme of the extreme. Lots of power with a 10,000 + rpm redline and a lot more hardcore track hardware.

    Lexus will one day rule the supercar world!!! I bet if Lexus continues, just give it 5 – 7 years and Lexus would be the best exotic car builder.

    hmm is this a stripped down LFA weighing under 3000lbs?

  • BlackDynamiteNY

    Strip it down to what?

    It’s already almost 65% carbon fiber.  Only has two seats.  The Nurburgring Pkg. already has lighter seats and wheels…..

    I think the engine would be tuned to 600 HP and 10k RPM

    Imagine an LFA on Michelin Super Sport Cups, not the 15 year old Bridgestone RE070s?

    What could a simple tire upgrade, an extra 50 HP, and a weight under 3200 lbs do to lap times?
