Lexus Nürburgring LFA Supercar for 2012: If owning one of the 500 examples of the LFA supercar that Lexus plans to build doesn’t claim victory to your ego, then you’ll be happy to know that the Japanese automaker has just released U.S. pricing for the Nürburgring Package that will be strictly limited to only 50 units worldwide.
Those that choose to tick the option will be charged an extra $70,000, while Matte black will carry an additional cost of $20,000. The standard LFA carries a MSRP of $375,000, meaning that with the Nürburgring Package, increases the total price to a $450,000.
The 75 grand will get you a tweaked version of the 4/8-liter V10 engine producing 562HP or 10 more horsepower than the standard LFA along with a modified transmission that reduces gear-shift time by 0.05 seconds to 0.15 seconds.
A sportier-tuned suspension, exclusive black mesh-type alloy wheels with dedicated high-grip tires for better handling, as well as a larger front spoiler and fixed rear wing for improved high speed down force, are also part of the Nürburgring Package.
And if that ain’t enough, in addition to the vehicle specs, Lexus will throw in a package of special privileges in association with the Nürburgring course itself.
The company said that perks include, but are not limited to, private parking, co-pilot ride, one night stand at the Lindner Congress and Motorsport Hotel Nürburgring, private training with Nürburgring chief driving instructor, a Nürburgring branded jacket, as well as a one-year annual pass valid for driving on the Nordschleife and admission to ring werk leisure park.
The limited edition LFA with the Nürburgring Package will be available in four exterior colors – whitest white, orange, black and matte black complemented by a choice of three interior colors – black, red, and violet. All come with a carbon fiber center console and door trim.
