Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition Videos

The Lexus LFA Nürburgring edition debuted this week at the Geneva Motor Show, and here’s Colum Wood from AutoGuide to give us a brief overview of the track-modified supercar:

The LFA looks great up on that stage, here’s a deeper look:

Although there’s been plenty of coverage of the orange LFA special edition (Autoblog has a nice photo gallery, as does Jalopnik), not much in the way of new details have been announced — with one exception. Motor Trend is reporting that of the 50 Nürburgring editions being built, “at least” 15 of them will be in the USA.

Still no nurburgring time? grr Man I would also like to vent my frustrations when people say this car is so expensive and has no racing heritage or is boring. Please correct me if worng on this but car companies like the Zonda and Bugatti don't have any racing heritage do they?? Why don't people have a go at them? I mean at the Zonda doesn't even build its own engines. I think people just hate it cos its not a Lambo or Ferrari and have this thing where they can't admit that a company like Toyota can build a nice supercar and don't like it cos its from Japan. Sorry only place i can vent without actually having to register cos i do go on a few forums to read car news.

@pri­ma­tives: Bugatti, via wikipedia: "[Bugatti] enjoyed great success in early Grand Prix motor racing, winning the first ever Monaco Grand Prix. The company's success culminated with driver Jean-Pierre Wimille winning the 24 hours of Le Mans twice (in 1937 with Robert Benoist and 1939 with Pierre Veyron)." Pagani may be a coachbuilder using other manufacturers' engines, but historically that's very common - it's not like the original McLaren F1 was powered by a McLaren engine - It was BMW. For what it's worth, Pagani used to work for Lamborghini before deciding to build his own cars.

Toyota/Lexus has racing heritage. WRC, Le Mans, Daytona Prototypes, CART, JGTC/SuperGT, F1 all with some great level of success. It may not date back as far as Ferrari and Lambo but it doesn't matter, look at the technology that's in the LFA. Side note, the Veyron is a waste, it's something any car manufacturer can make.

aside from the fact that it took a lot of years for its development and tuning, one should take note that even the materials used to built this car is almost exclusive. I also reckon that this car will retain its value and perhaps will not depreciate due to exclusivity.
