Lexus LFA Nürburgring
How do you make a carbon-tubbed 9,000rpm V10 supercar even more ultra-special? Swap the pop-up rear spoiler for a whacking-great fixed wing, add lighter wheels and front aero flicks, then get nerdy.
Each of the 50 LFA Nürburgrings had an extra 10bhp to compensate for the taller wing’s increased drag, while gearshifts were trimmed by 0.15 seconds. Each owner received Nürburgring driving lessons and got a 12-month circuit pass thrown in on the house. Beats a set of floor mats and an air freshener.
