One of only fifty examples of the Lexus LFA Nurburgring has come up for sale on the PistonHeads website – the only Nurburgring LFA currently available in Europe.

Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show

The most expensive Japanese car ever made – the LFA still holds the record for the fastest lap around the Nordschleife circuit – set back in 2011.

An original production run of the hand-made LFA lasted for two years and was set a strict global limit of 500 vehicles – 50 of which were set aside for the Nurburgring Package treatment.

40 standard LFAs made their way to Europe; Germany was the biggest recipient with 15 models, six went to Switzerland, five to the UK, four to the Netherlands and France took three.

The car up for sale is one of the 50 LFA models that received the ‘Nurburgring Package’ – creating a more track-focussed vehicle which features a number of slight alterations including an additional 10bhp, a fixed carbon rear wing and front splitter, a re-calibrated gearbox for faster shits, stiffer and more adjustable suspension, lightweight alloy wheels and carbon canards on the front wings.

These modifications come together to produce a car that looks more striking than the standard model and can go quicker.

This particular LFA is finished in white with black Alcantara interior and has complete just 6,000 miles since it came out of the factory.

A 4.8-litre V10 monster develops an incredible 552bhp and will get you from a standing start to 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds before reaching a mind-blowing top speed of 210mph.

The car is listed at an eye-popping £440,000 but when you consider you can’t get a Ferrari 250 GTO for less than £20 million this doesn’t look as steep!
