as time goes on, the lexus lfa becomes more and more desirable to collectors. more than a decade after its release, people are finally starting to realize just how special a car it really is. widely touted as the best-sounding production car ever built, just 500 were made through two years of production. and just 50 of those cars came with the high-performance nürburgring package. now, one of those cars is for sale.
in addition to the flashy bbs magnesium wheels and fixed wing out back, nürburgring package cars got a retuned suspension, stickier tires, a big front splitter, dive planes, and a recalibrated six-speed single-clutch automatic transaxle for even faster shift times. combine those with a naturally aspirated 4.8-liter v-10 engine making 562 horsepower—10 more over the standard car—and you have one of the best vehicles japan has ever come up with. in a successful attempt to live up to its name, a lexus lfa equipped with the nürburgring package was able to set a nordschleife lap of 7:14.64 back in 2011—a record at the time.
this particular car was originally sold in canada before being exported to the united kingdom in 2014. it currently shows just under 12,000 miles on the odometer and wears a beautiful green wrap around its original white-painted body. prior to its listing, the car received a major service with new spark plug, as well as a brake service 3000 miles ago.
this lfa is currently listed for sale on pistonheads.com in the u.k. with an asking price of £849,950 (roughly $1.13 million at current exchange rates). because the car was originally built for the canada market, you shouldn't have much of a problem importing and registering it here in the u.s., which is a plus.
