Lexus LFA in Full Nürburgring 24h Race Livery

Lexus and Gazoo Racing will be competing in the 39th annual Nürburgring 24h race this weekend with two LFAs driven by six extremely talented drivers, including Andre Lotterer, winner of the the 24h Le Mans race earlier this month — here’s a full list of the drivers and their accomplishments:

Just as in the four years previous, the LFAs will be in the SP8 Class, and are hoping to improve on last years’ 18th overall finish — a goal very much in reach considering the Gazoo team’s strong showings during this season’s VLN races.

As for the racecars themselves, they will continue to be powered by a detuned version of the 4.8L V10 in order to qualify for the SP8 class, putting out around 492hp instead of the production model’s 552 hp.

I’ll be doing my best to cover the event here, and I certainly recommend following the Lexus Europe Twitter account for quick updates.
