We already know that the 2011 Lexus LF-A will come in only 500 units. What we didn’t know – at least until Lexus announced it a few days ago – was that 50 of these LF-As are going to be that of the special-run Nurburgring Edition.

Built to commemorate the supercar’s third go-round in the Nurburgring 24 Hours race this coming May, the Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Edition were built with a slew of special upgrades, including a bigger front spoiler, a fixed wing on the back, fin-type of side spoilers, and stickier compound tires. In addition to that, these special edition LFAs will also get a moderate boost in power to over 560 horsepower. It’s not a lot compared to the standard model, but it’s still significant enough to warrant a mention, especially given that the supercar already comes with a 4.8-liter V10 engine.

And if that’s not enough for any of you, the LF-A Nurbugring Edition will also come with a 1-year pass on the race track, plus individual instructions on Nurburgring itself.

Whatever else this special-edition LF-A has with it, we do know that while the orange paint job really doesn’t do the car any aesthetic favors, it doesn’t take away from the car’s exclusivity, which, with only 50 units, is already as exclusive a car as you can find anywhere in the world.

500 is really quite small figure. Is it because they want to make sure the mistake they did in the past won’t happen again? Well I really hope no more accidents this time

50 only? Well I guess the LF-A fans should be reserving already for it’s release on the market.

Nothing so special with it. I hope to see a LF-AS and the ST1 come face to face on track, and see whos more superior killing machine but alos please include the GT-R.
