Lexus delivers first LFA Nürburgring supercar in UK

A British customer is the first in Europe to take delivery of the Lexus LFA supercar with a Nürburgring package, one of just 50 examples that will be sold at £411,752.

Finished in orange with a black interior, the Nürburgring package adds a number of elements that increase downforce for sharper circuit performance, without compromising speed.

It includes a front spoiler made from carbon fibre reinforced plastic, plus special mesh-type wheels with dedicated, high-grip tyres to improve manoeuvrability and stability.

Maximum power from the LFA’s 4.8-litre V10 engine has been increased from 552 to 562bhp (411 to 420kW), maintaining the car’s 3.7-second 0- 62mph acceleration time and 202mph top speed.

Lexus

Lexus total sales last year were just behind where the brand was in 1999 but model development has recently seen a resurgence in demand.

The CT200h has been hailed as the model that Lexus 'has been crying out for' to ramp up sales through its dealer network.

The CT200h is the first compact five-door car from the Japanese prestige brand. This is also the lowest priced Lexus, costing from £23,485. The carmaker wants to ramp this up to 10,600 by 2012, and CT200h will account for more than half of that total.

Customers are expected to come from other premium brands as well as mainstream ones, including Lexus’s parent Toyota.

Toyota GB’s research shows that 10% of Toyota owners leave the brand each year to upgrade to premium models, but only 10% of these have bought a Lexus until now because there was no compact, lower priced cars in its range.
