Buyers will be able to order stripped-down version of the £343k supercar
26 October 2009

Lexus LFA buyers will be able to specify the supercar in a harder, track-tuned trim, a company insider has confirmed.

The £343,000 V10-powered supercar was unveiled at last week's Tokyo motor show, with Lexus confirming that just 500 will be built.

Now it has been confirmed that buyers will be able to ask for their LFA to be stripped out and built to a track specification - although the powertrain and engine won't be altered in any way.

"The LFA is such a bespoke machine that buyers can specify pretty much what they want," said a company source. "If they choose to ask for it to be stripped out and built with track use in mind, there's no reason why it won't be possible."

Since being shown as a concept car six years ago, the LFA has made several race appearances at the Nurburgring 24 Hours.

Lexus has also confirmed that it has no plans to run a race series for the cars.

"... buyers will be able to ask for their LFA to be stripped out and built to a track specification - although the powertrain and engine won't be altered in any way."

and all that will be what? - Nürburgring Spec?

AHAHAH cannot! that will be unreliable...

now I`m looking to the Novitec 747... what a machine!

that is, to have balls...

back to the toys, indeed, i`m not shure if with this they will find the remaining 498 buyers...
