Lexus LFA is very hard to defeat

Before the hard 24 hour competition at Nurburgring, Lexus decided it was best to test its special edition, the LFA. It was a quite big surprise to see the lap time at the finish line. The model had managed to defeat the time around Nordschleife of 7 minutes and 22 seconds. This personal record makes the model the 10th fastest model to run around the "Green Hell".
At the wheels of the LFA was Akira Iida, Gazoo Racing's supervisor. So, the first step was made. What Lexus wants is to beat the production car Nurburgring record, but that will only happen in a few months.
The Nurburgring special edition build by Lexus will only have 50 units and will cost $ 375,000. The model has a 4.8-liter V10 engine that can deliver 562 bhp. The LFA has a few updates in comparison with the original model starting with the 10 extra bhp and continuing with the brakes, more aerodynamic aids and even a lower suspension.
Lexus is really not joking.
