U.S. Collector Car Dealer Selling Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition


If you’re looking to buy a 2012 Camaro ZL1 or a 2013 Ford Shelby GT500, RK Motors in Charlotte, North Carolina probably won’t be able to help you much. On the other hand, if you’re looking to buy an immaculately-restored 1969 Camaro Z/28, or an original Shelby GT350 Mustang, RK Motors may be worth visiting.

RK makes its living by restoring and reselling classic and collector cars, but that doesn’t mean its inventory is restricted to decades-old models. In fact, RK Motors is currently offering a 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition for sale, 1 of just 50 built.

It’s not the same U.S. car we showed you in March, as the RK car sports a different interior. The same hand-built 4.8-liter V-10 lurks beneath the hood, though, and it’s still good for 562 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque.

As with all Nürburgring Edition Lexus LFA models, this one wears a prominent carbon fiber rear wing, as well as a revised front end that increases downforce by nearly 33-percent.

That’s not going to help you much on the street, but it does make a significant difference on the track. Driving a Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition, test pilot extraordinaire Akira Iida was able to lap the Green Hell in just 7:14.64, establishing a record (later beaten by the Dodge Viper ACR) for a production car running on standard-issue tires.

As for the asking price, RK Motors isn’t saying. Not only is the car 1 of 50 built, buts it’s the only one to be offered in this specific color combination of a white exterior with a red and black interior.

The base price, before options, of an LFA Nürburgring Edition was set by Lexus at $450,000, and we’re guessing that it will cost you a bit more than that to add this one to your collection.

  1. I've been a Lexus fan for almost 5 years. This ca never disappoint me. Luxury, elegance and performance. All of these were Lexus' characteristics. Lexus parts also is a combination of affordability and quality.
