Lexus Conducts Final-phase Test of 'LFA Nürburgring Package' at Nürburgring

On August 31, 2011, Lexus conducted a final-phase test of the "LFA Nürburgring Package", a track-performance-enhanced version of the 500-unit-limited LFA two-seater supercar, at the Nürburgring in Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany.  The vehicle is scheduled for production next year.

On the 20.6 km Nürburgring Nordschleife (North Loop), where the LFA was tempered and after which the package is named, professional race driver and LFA test driver Akira Iida recorded a lap time of 7:14.64.  The standard tires for the vehicle, Bridgestone Potenza RE070, were used.

The LFA Nürburgring Package features a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) front spoiler and fixed rear wing to enhance aerodynamic performance, and comes with a suspension designed for circuit racing and custom wheels for improved maneuverability and stability.  The maximum output of the LFA Nürburgring Package has been raised to 420 kW (571 PS) over the LFA's 412 kW (560 PS).
