Onboard A Lexus LFA Racing Around The Nurburgring: Video

Follow Viknesh



Here’s your chance to ride shotgun in a race-prepped Lexus LFA as it storms around the Nurburgring circuit in Germany at a recent VLN event. By watching this video you are taken directly into the cockpit of the Lexus LFA, number 111, which ended up fifth overall in the race.

Behind the wheel is Hiroaki Ishiura, one of three drivers that will compete in the highlight of the VLN, the Nurburgring 24 Hours endurance race on June 25. During the race captured here, Ishiura had an average of speed of 100 mph and managed to complete a lap of the famous circuit plus the shortened GP-track in 8 minutes and 34.416 seconds.

Fielded by Gazoo Racing and Toyota, two LFAs are competing in this year’s grueling VLN series. The cars are largely stock though based on the slightly more hardcore LFA Nurburgring Package models.

Some modifications have been made to their bodies, including the installation of a fixed rear wing and a new chin spoiler, but the mechanical package has been left completely stock. This means power still comes from a 4.8-liter 72-degree V-10 engine that’s rated at 562 horsepower and 354-pound-feet of torque.

Stay tuned for our race preview of this year’s Nurburging 24 Hours race, where we’ll also get to see the sultry Aston Martin V12 Zagato take to the track.

  1. IMO, the Japanese team is going to have to bring some more of the "LFA Nurburgring Package models" into this car, if they seriously want to compete against the two Porsche's that were on the video.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Porsches look so mundane at the Nurburgring. This think looks like a UFO and sounds wild. I want.
