Lexus to race LFA track cars in 24 Hours Nurburgring endurance event –

After a lot of rumors deeming certain an even more powerful edition of the LFA supercar, presumably named the Nurburgring, Lexus has come forward with an announcement about its performance supercar and the famous German track.

Sadly, it’s not the announcement many people have waited, as the Japanese company revealed that it will be racing two LFA track cars at the famous 24 Hours of Nurburgring endurance competition, taking place between May 13 and 16.

The two cars will be raced by the Gazoo team, a longtime racing partner of both Toyota and Lexus. They will be driven by a mixed crew of Japanese and German drivers, all with extensive racing pedigrees. In case you didn’t know, this isn’t the first time the LFA participated in the race, as it has attended in prototype stage the 2008 and 2009 editions.

Judging by this announcement and the rumored performance edition, it’s fairly certain that after the race, Lexus will reveal the Nurburgring limited edition of the LFA. Until May though, we’ll have to wait and see.
