Recommended Posts

Hallo Freunde des F-ahrvernügens,


anbei die Story und Fotos zum letzten je gebauten LFA, ich hoffe ihr könnt etwas Englisch da ich der Einfachheit halber die Texte immer auf Englisch vorbereite.

Falls nicht einfach fragen 🙂


The last LFA - 500/500
A question I often hear is: What's the most unique Lexus you have seen? For sure it's this LFA with Nürburgring package, as many of you know the "standard" LFA was limited to 500 cars worlwide, some lucky people could buy the even more limited LFA with Nürburgring package which was limited to just 50 cars.
The car you see above is the last car that left the Motomachi plant in Japan on the 14th december 2012, the car was signed by the Toyota Motor Corporation president Akio Toyoda himself.
The Nürburgring package featured an extra 7.4 kW(10 PS, 10 hp) from its V10 engine, bringing the total to 420 kW (571 PS, 563 hp). It also featured a re-calibrated transmission with gear shifts made faster by 0.05 seconds, a front splitter, stiffer and more adjustable suspension, lightweight alloy wheels wrapped in track tyres( Bridgestone Potenza RE70), aerodynamic canards at the sides of the front bumper, and a large fixed rear wing.
The LFA with the Nürburgring Package is a competition-focused variant, and was available in four exterior colours, namely glossy black, matte black, race yellow, and whitest white.
Buyers received training sessions at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, accompanied by Nürburgring chief instructors, a one-night stay at the Lindner Congress and Motorsport Hotel Nürburgring, admission to the ring°werk leisure park, a Nürburgring branded jacket, and a one-year pass to the circuit.
The warmup round:
The Nürburgring Package LFA was tested at the Nürburgring in June 2011. Driven by Akira Iida, the LFA set a confirmed time of 7:22.85, the 10th-fastest time ever for a production vehicle.
Lexus confirmed that this lap video was recorded as a "warm up" video for the "ADAC 24-hours" for exhibition purposes.
The LFA hit 292 km/h (181 mph) on the last straight uphill climb, which is one of the highest speeds achieved by factory standard sports car on that segment of the track. Standard OEM Bridgestone Potenza RE70 performance street tyres were used.
The final round:
On 2 September 2011 reports came from Lexus via Twitter as well as Chris Harris of Evo Magazine that the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package completed a lap of the Nurburgring in 7:14.64 with a top speed of 298 km/h (185 mph) on the "Dottinger" uphill climb, the fifth fastest time for a production car at the time, and almost ten seconds quicker than the Porsche 911 GT2 RS at 7:24
