It’s already one of the rarest supercars on the planet – but Lexus has gone a stage further with this special edition LF-A.
Called the “Nurburgring Edition”, it honours the famous German racing circuit where the LF-A was developed. Inspired by the competition versions that raced at the 20.8 kilometer track, it gets a huge fixed rear wing and front splitter, stiffer, more adjustable suspension and lightweight alloys with track-spec tyres.
Lexus engineers have also liberated an extra 7 kW from the LF-A’s 4,8-litre V10 engine, taking total power output to 419 kW. A range of four colours will be available – including gloss black, matte black and orange – while the production run is expected to be tiny, given that just 500 examples of the ‘standard’ LF-A will be built. Expect a price tag in excess of £400 000, or around R4.6 million.
