Through the kind generosity of a German Car Forum member ENZOX, Chris Harris’ EVO Magazine feature on the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition has been scanned & uploaded, and we can finally read what one of the world’s best automotive journalists thinks about Lexus’ track-optimized supercar.
Not to spoil anything, but I have to pull some quotes:
I have probably spent too much time driving around the [Nürburgring] Nordscheife, but that dos at least mean I have driven most of the current super-sports cars around the place, and this special LFA is the best of them all. Haruhiko Tanahashi and his team have done a stunning job.
[The Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition] is the best road car I’ve ever driven around here, which, added to its unique appeal as an object, intensifies the aura that surrounds this motoring curiosity. That it costs an extra £63K over the standard car and only 50 will be built won’t bother the lucky few. They even get some free driver training and a year’s free lapping at the place the car was named after. Bargain.
Heavy praise indeed — this is the definitive LFA Nürburgring article, especially when combined with Harris’ earlier video of the lap he describes. Highly recommended reading.
