Even more extreme version of LFA hypercar revealed at the Geneva motor show
1 March 2011

Lexus has publicly displayed its Nurburgring package for the LFA hypercar for the first time at the Geneva motor show.

The Nurburgring Package is available on up to 50 of the 500 LFA units Lexus is building. It includes a 10bhp power boost for its 4.8-litre V10 engine to 562bhp thanks to a revised exhaust system, while a recalibrated six-speed transmission cuts shift speeds from 0.2secs to 0.15sec. However, the 3.7sec 0-62mph time and 202mph top speed remain the same.

Visual changes on the track-focused LFA include a larger, fixed rear wing and a new front splitter. Mechanical upgrades include a stiffer suspension system with increased adjustability and new lightweight alloys featuring semi-slick tyres.

It is available in four colours: Black, Matte Black, Whitest White and Orange. The Matte Black colour scheme is expected to command another £15,000 premium.

Buyers also get a day of one-on-one driving tuition at the 'Ring, as well as a 365-day pass to the Nordschleife. No pricing details have been revealed, but the pack is expected to push the LFA’s list price close to £400,000.

    The DS 5 is hard to pigeonhole but it works as a package. Impressive French-style long-range cruiser, albeit at strong money for an unproven brand

    The 4C improves, and the Spider is a good conversion, but it remains dynamically troubled and absurdly expensive

    More traction and nothing separating Jag's monstrous V8 mouthpiece from your ears. It's the shoutiest, priciest F-Type on sale, but is it the best?

    The C63 may have lost its big V8, but its replacement makes it difficult to mourn
