Here's Your Chance To Own One of Only 50 Lexus LFA Nurburgring Editions

Here’s Your Chance To Own One of Only 50 Lexus LFA Nurburgring Editions

Prepare those checkbooks, ladies and gentlemen

The Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition represented the last of the LFAs that Lexus developed at the start of the decade. Only 50 Nurburgring Editions were made, and all 50 were scooped up in short order. The special edition’s limited status makes it hard to find one being put up for sale, let alone in an auction setting. It’s not impossible, though, because one of the 50 LFA Nurburgring Editions will return to the spotlight when it’s auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson event in Palm Beach, Florida this coming April.

One-Off McLaren 720S By MSO Raises $650,000 For Children's Charity

One-Off McLaren 720S By MSO Raises $650,000 For Children’s Charity

Going big for a good cause

While just about any McLaren model in standard trim is truly a sight to behold, the experts over at McLaren Special Operations (MSO) have a way of making these machines even more attractive. And that’s exactly what happened with this one-of-one 720S coupe, which comes draped in unique paint and gets decked out in a plethora of carbon bits. One McLaren fan was so smitten, they paid $650,000 to get their hands on it, well over twice the car’s starting MSRP. And that’s a good thing, because proceeds went to benefit a children’s charity.

The car was recently auctioned off at the Naples Winter Wine Festival, where it raised money for the Naples Children & Education Foundation. The car was originally equipped in the Luxury specification (as opposed to the base model or Performance spec). From there, MSO added a host of optional equipment, including loads of carbon fiber bits for the interior and exterior. However, the most eye-catching feature is the Nerello Red paint found on the body panels, so named after a type of grape found in the Mascali area of Sicily – appropriate for the Naples Winter Wine Festival, no?

Inside, the 720S comes equipped with Saddle Brown leather upholstery punctuated by Nerello stitching. There’s also a customized steering wheel sporting some Carbon Black leather hand grips.

As a reminder, the McLaren 720S comes from the factory with a carbon fiber chassis for low weight, as well as a 4.0-liter V-8 for motivation. The powerplant is pumped up by a double-dose of turbocharging to produce 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque at the rear wheels. The run to 60 mph takes just 2.8 seconds, while top speed is rated at 212 mph. MSRP starts at $287,745.
