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.

    Limited-edition road-legal Caterham track car is a superbly enthralling drive, with enough creature comforts to be used on the road as well. Even more addictive than most of its rangemates
