Lexus LFA Supercar: Nurburgring Edition Price and Specs

We reported in an earlier post that the Lexus LFA sports car was able to shatter a champagne glass with its exhaust note, and that fact that all 500 pre-orders have now been sold. The LFA is due to hit the streets in December, but we have recently learned that the Lexus LFA will be turned into a supercar with a 2010 Nurburgring Edition.

Toyota owned Lexus has announced that there will be 50 of these Nurburgring Package race version, but will come with a more hefty price tag than its current $375,000. According to Venus V from Nitrobahn, the finally price is expected to be $445,000, $465,000 if you choose to add the matte black paint job.

So what extra do you get for the $70,000 price bump? You get an extra 10 horsepower, so now the 4.8-liter 10-cylinder engine will pump out 563hp. The gearbox software will be upgraded allowing gear changes 0.05 seconds faster — this will be more noticeable on the track.

Lexus will also add extra-grip tires and sports-tuned suspension; the end result is faster approaches to corners. The extra $70,000 is not just for extra bits on the car, you will also get an expense-paid trip to Nurburgring — the ultimate racing track. There is no word on when the new Lexus LFA Nurburgring will be released.
