Lexus has announced a Nürburgring package for the LFA that increases power and improves handling.

Lexus has announced a Nürburgring package for its LFA supercar. The name was given in celebration of Lexus entering once again the car in the Nürburgring 24 Hours race.  Previously, the limited edition was announced in Japan as the simply put, "Special Edition." The pack is limited to 50 examples and targets potential buyers interested in an even more hardcore track driving experience.

New aerodynamic components including a larger front spoiler, side canard air foils and a new fixed rear wing have been added to increase downforce and improve handling.

Power is also on the up. From the standard 4.8-litre V10 with 412 kW (553 bhp / 560 PS) comes a new power figure of 419 kW (562 bhp / 570 PS) and reduced gearshift times. Performance times are also down; 0 - 62mph flashes by in 3.7 seconds and top speed is 325 km/h (202 mph).

Lexus is offering buyers of this package, who form part of the limited 500 units globally, an advanced driving course at the ‘Ring, plus a free year-long pass into the legendary track.
