The first US-bound Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition has landed. Almost at the same time, a Bahrain-based owner over at Teamspeed posted a few pictures of his own LFA Nurburgring Edition! Pictures of the US Nurburgring Edition have surfaced showing the white supercar waiting in a warehouse, presumably ready to be delivered to a new owner.
The US car has a white exterior with carbon fiber accents. Inside it gets a red interior with white and carbon fiber accents. The Bahrain car has a gloss black exterior with the same carbon fiber trim accents. It appears to have a red alcatara interior with black and carbon fiber accents. The Bahrain car appears to have a painted roof rather than the carbon fiber option fitted to the US car though.
The Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition is limited to only fifty pieces. It includes enhanced aerodynamic performance and improved high speed downforce thanks to a larger front spoiler, fin-type side spoilers, a canard fin, and a fixed rear wing. Power has increased by just 10hp to just over 570hp, enough to ensure that the LFA maintains its acceleration time of 0-100km/h in just 3.7 seconds and a maximum speed of 325km/h. The maximum torque is 480Nm at 7,000rpm.
The Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition was originally available only in matte black, black, white or orange although we expect special orders to be placed too. The interior only gets three colour schemes, black and red, black and purple or all black, however, the US car conforms to none of these, therefore we assume it is a special order.
Both cars will have completed a 200km test drive at the Motomachi track in Japan prior to factory release. Owners also get individual instruction on the Nordschleife by one of the Nürburgring chief instructors, and a one year driving pass so they can maximize their driving experience. We doubt the later will be of much use to either of these customers!
In the US the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition costs the normal $ 375,000 price tag for the LFA plus and additional $ 70,000. In Malaysia, the car likely costs over 3 million Malaysian ringgits, well over twice the price of the US car.
