Video: Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition review

September 19, 2011

Autocar in the UK has just posted up a Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition review onto its YouTube channel. The video review outlines the main differences between the normal Lexus LFA and the new special Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition.

The Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition is the car that recently lapped the famous Nurburgring Nordschliefe circuit in Germany in a best time of 7:14. Even though this time has since been bettered by the Dodge Viper ACR (7:12), the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition is still the second-quickest proper road car – with a boot – to have ever lapped the circuit.

It features the same 4.8-litre V10 engine under the bonnet as the normal LFA although it outputs 419kW compared with the 412kW standard output. The special edition also features a number of aerodynamic revisions, including a fixed rear wing, as well as considerable weight reduction measures which bring overall weight down by around 100kg.

Click play on the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition video review below for more details. Autocar says it will be doing s complete lap test of the LFA on the Nurburgring very soon. We’ll keep you posted.
