Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package laps Nurburgring in 7:22

The Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package just proved it is worthy of its name. During this past weekend’s ADAC 24 hour race at Nurburgring with Gazoo Racing’s Akira Iida behind the wheel, the car lapped the Nurburgring race track in 7:22.85 purely for exhibition purposes.

Lexus stated that this wasn’t an "official" lap time, but just a warm up to a possible official attempt later this year. However, despite that fact, this lap time places the LFA Nurburgring Package in 10th place for the fastest production vehicle on the Nurburgring track, and it did it with minimal effort. We can’t wait to see what it can do when it goes balls to the wall!

Short reminder: The Lexus LF-A is powered by a 4.8 liter V10 that delivers a maximum output of 560 HP, but for the LF-A Nurburgring Track Edition the output will be raised to 570 HP. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph will be made in 3.7 seconds, and top speed will go up to 210 mph.

Yeah, they probably will. It is likely that they would bring out the official time later this week. And that one is certainly going to be amazing. I just hope that they would bring it to the public.

Well, if that’s just an unofficial lap time, I think in they can bring the Lexus LFA to its edge. This car can surely compete with other super cars there.

It would really be a good idea if they would release this one as a special edition car. A lot of folks would definitely be very excited if that one is the case here.

Well, I would say that I already expected that the LFA would pull off a superb performance. But I am still quite amazed at the time that it made for that lap.

Well, with or without the Nurburgring lap time, I would still say that this one is an awesome car. The looks of it alone will tell you that this baby is no ordinary ride.

Maybe they are just trying to find a lap time that would really be good, and then they would call that the official time. Pretty clever if that’s the case.

Not at all surprising really, since we are already well aware of the performance that this one can pull off. Nevertheless, it is still amazing to see this one in action.
