• Wild Lexus LF-A caught testing at Nurburgring (UPDATED w/Video)

The Lexus LF-A is getting closer to the end of its life line, with only 10 units remaining to be produced. While we prepare to say goodbye to a wickedly awesome supercar, it looks as though Lexus is preparing to send it off with an automotive fireworks show. Our spy photographers have spotted a very wild-looking LF-A testing at the Nurburgring and we have to wonder what kind of special edition model Lexus is firing up.

The prototype looks a lot like the Nurburgring Edition, but looks to have gotten some significant changes: an additional air intake on the hood and a small bootlid spoiler. The normal tri-exhaust pipes in the middle look like they have been removed and replaced with twin exhaust pipes on both sides placed just under the rear lights. The small Gurney flaps above the rear lights also look slightly bigger on this prototype.

The only question is: what car are we looking at? Is it an LF-A Final Edition? Tokyo Edition? We’ll just have to wait and see, but as soon as we do, you’ll hear about it.

UPDATE 06/26/2012 #1: It looks like BridgeToGantry managed to shoot a video of this special edition Lexus LF-A while it performed some hot laps around the Nurburgring. They are calling it the Lexus LF-A AD-A because AD-A are the three letters printed just above the side sill, behind the front wheel. Hit the jump to watch the video!
