First Lexus Nurburgring LFA to be Transported to the US

the-first-lexus-lfa-nurburgring-edition-to-land-in-the-usThe much-coveted Lexus Nurburgring LFA is about to land in the USA. The identity of the owner has not been revealed, but at this moment, he is considered luckier than everyone else in the country. The Lexus vehicle is armed with the Nurburgring Package which makes it stealthier, more powerful, and faster than the other models bearing the same brand name. There are also only a few Lexus LFA model available with this package so it’s certainly one of the most valuable cars to be imported into the country this year.

While the Nurburgring Package shows a car in orange, this vehicle was ordered in white. There was also a carbon roof installed which is a deviation from the standard design. Still, the Lexus gem is as handsome as ever. The photos you’ll see circulating the Internet are all taken from the product’s delivery to the country.

You might also find the interiors of the car quite interesting. While the exterior is in white with black markings, the interior is in pure red. It’s a great design decision on the new owner’s part because the car appears to have an even stronger personality compared to its standard counterparts.

It is known that the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition is one of the fastest production cars today. It is aptly named after the Nurburgring race track. The Nurburgring Package upgrade costs an extra $70,000, and this is a pretty big price tag. The standard Lexus LFA, without these trimmings, already costs $375,000. It sports a roaring 4.8-liter V-10, and could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 3.7 seconds.  The top speed of the car is 202 mph.

For certain, this wasn’t made for practical, city driving. Whoever ordered the Nurburgring Edition of the Lexus LFA must be a very rich and powerful man. He probably also owns his own race track because he won’t be able to test the full features of this car on the city highway.
