Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition Posts Record Time at the Nürburgring


Here’s something Toyotaku can be proud of. According to Lexus’ official twitter stream, the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition has just run the Nürburgring in 7:14 at the hands of driver Akira Iida. This is the quickest time from a mainstream automaker (ie, a marque the average person has heard of), beating the next fastest, a Porsche 911 GT2 RS, by four seconds. Corolla drivers, you can hold their heads up a little bit higher. Hiromu Naruse would be proud.

    good for Toyota.. but the car itself, unlike the GTR is so out of reach.

    Cost/Performance is still held by Nissan’s GTR!

    I’ve often lamented the fact that I weren’t around when the Toyota 2000GT was launched,but the instant legend that is the LFA more than makes up for it.
