It is the most challenging track in the world. In its most volatile state it is 12.9 miles in length and has some 170 corners. This is the ultimate test for any machine. This is the Nürburgring… Lexus today has smashed the lap record for production cars around the track.
The crown has now been taken from the Porsche 911 GT2 RS that lapped the track in 7:18. A Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package car has completed the track in 7:14 making it the fastest production car on “the green hell” and in the top five fastest overall. The extra 10BHP and fixed wing of this special edition appears to have served its purpose and brought this Japanese nuclear weapon the recognition it deserves.
