It’s safe to assume that a large majority of 2012 Lexus LFA buyers will have no idea how to extract the most from their highly refined and engineered supercar. With a mighty V-10 delivering 552 horsepower at a lofty 8,700 rpm, mostly carbon fiber construction and a quick-shifting sequential manual gearbox, the LFA is almost the exact definition of a race car built for the road.
This is largely the reason behind Lexus’ decision to offer a driver development program for future LFA owners, which will run between March 8 and 15. It will include a full day of high performance driving with racing professionals at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California.
The Lexus LFA driver development one-day program was designed as a place for current or future LFA owners or sports car enthusiasts to become more confident and comfortable driving this high-performance machine. The program offers a blend of racing theory, track lapping sessions, performance limit exercises and technical demonstrations on the Infineon Raceway circuit.
Pricing for the one-day program starts at $3,500 per person.
