Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition Laps Nordschleife in 7:22.85

Right before we jump into coverage of this weekend’s Nürburgring 24h race, a new video has surfaced showing Team Manager Akira Iida taking a Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition around the Nordschleife in 7:22.85 (be warned, the video is not of the highest quality):

While there’s some important details left to discover, a time of 7:22.85 would put the LFA Nürburgring Edition in some very elite company, and good enough for the 10th fastest lap by a production car on the all time list.

More details as they become available.

Update: This video was being shown at the Nürburgring 24h race alongside the LFA Nürburgring Edition display.

Update II: I’ve been told that this video isn’t an “official” lap time, but instead just a warm up to a possible official attempt later this year.
