Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package

Announced back in June 2010, the Nurburgring package for the Lexus LFA has been unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Designed in order to make the supercar more track-oriented, those who have the money to buy it will also get “Ring” driving lessons and a one year pass on the course. Lexus said that they are only making 50 packages for the LFA which is 10% of all the cars that are going to be produced.
