A Lexus LFA with aerodynamic package Nürburgring achieved an extraordinary sales result in a recent auction held by the company Bring A Trailer, which operates online. The 2012 car, the 349th of 500 produced in all, it was sold for just under one and a half million euros: astounding figure, which however this model has absolutely in the ropes given that in the past other specimens had obtained results that on average were just under one million euros. It is one of only 64 units with the Nürburgring packageof which only 15 had ad hoc specifications for the US market, or the one on which it was auctioned.
Already in 2019, in Amelia Island, RM Sotheby’s he had sold the same car for 825 thousand euros, and therefore the value has increased significantly. The car is finished in orange with Alcantara upholstery, and it seems to attack the asphalt even when stationary given the very strong look. Power comes from a 4.8-liter V10 (developed in collaboration with Yamaha) coupled with a six-speed automated sequential gearbox and a Torsen limited-slip differential. Among the main features of the car are the carbon fiber aerodynamic kit specific for the Nürburgring package, carbon composite bodywork, headlight washers, carbon-ceramic brake discs with Brembo calipers, heated and electrically adjustable seats, a Lexus Insider infotainment with voice control and navigation and a Mark Levinson audio system. And then, an element not to be underestimated, it has only driven 3,200 kilometers since leaving the factory.
The Nürburgring package was announced in March 2010: it is an optional specification of almost 65 thousand euros, which included a carbon fiber front spoiler, front canards and a fixed rear wing along with a revised suspension, light alloy wheels and a 10 horsepower increase over the standard LFA. Specifically, the car features three central exhausts, side air intakes, ventilated hood and bi-xenon HID headlights. The 20-inch forged alloy wheels are fitted together with Michelin Pilot Super Sport 265/35 front and 305/30 rear tires, which were installed in February 2022. A license plate authenticating the car as the LFA 349 is riveted to the rear bulkhead. Is he worth all this money? It is certainly a car that stands out from the competition, and its specific features make it particularly attractive for those who are fond of Japanese cars and, possibly, of the drifting and super sports world. The doubt remains that a lot has been put in place in this record auction romance.
