Best Motoring Laps with the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Race Car

One of the thoughts that ran through my head while watching Best Motoring supercar battle was: How would an Lexus LFA with the Nürburgring package have performed?

Turns out the answer was out there on Youtube — here’s Best Motoring‘s Naoki Hattori & Takayuki Kinoshita taking Fuji Speedway laps in one of the Nürburgring LFA racecars:

Hattori’s time around Fuji was 1’47″31, and Kinoshita’s time 1’47″18, making for an 8-second time difference between these laps and the stock LFA’s. Of course, the LFA race cars are even more stripped down than the Nürburgring package, but they’re more similar than not.
