Lexus LFA "Special Edition?" Prototype Spied On The 'Ring

Lexus LFA production run of 500 units is almost sold out, but there is always room for special editions. Lexus is very likely going to introduce a new special edition of their LFA supercar that is currently being tested at the Nürburgring.

At first the prototype looks similar to the Nürburgring Edition with its big rear wing, but at closer inspection you will notice a carbon fibre bonnet with new air intake, carbon fibre roof, side skirts, new lip spoiler, new never before seen bright Tiffany-Blue paintjob and at the rear the three middle exhausts are replaced with double exhaust pipes under the rear lights. There is also a new rear diffusor.

The Nürburgring Edition package had an engine output increased by 10bhp to 562bhp and faster shifts in the six-speed sequential transmission.

We don’t know what Lexus will call this special edition LFA and can’t be sure that it will ever see productuon, but we expect to see it at a major car show end of this year or in early 2013.

Update! Lexus has confirmed it is a one-off vehicle, being tested for technical purposes only. Lexus has now plans to produce and sell any new special editions of the LFA.
