The Lexus LFA supercar was a long time coming, but little time has been wasted in bringing a mod-kit aimed at hardcore track driving enthusiasts to market. The Nürburgring package offers new aerodynamics including a fixed rear wing which delivers greater downforce, a power increase to more than 562bhp, gearshift times cut to just 0.15 seconds, 0-62mph acceleration in 3.7 seconds and the top speed of 202mph is maintained in spite of higher downforce.
Only 50 examples are to be built out of a total LFA production limit of 500 cars. The announcement was made to highlight LFA’s entry in the Nürburgring 24 Hours race in May.
