    Default Mysterious "Final Edition" Lexus LFA on the Nurburgring

    Lexus is going even a step further in the development of the flagship LFA, as the original was meant to be produced in a limited run of only 500 units. This new edition spotted testing at high speeds on the Nurburgring, features quad exhaust tips in the rear, replacing the standard's center-mounted three. The reason for this change, you ask? To make room for a much larger diffuser integrated into the rear bumper.The new hood has been left unpainted for a raw carbon fiber look, while an additional air intake allows that mighty V10 to breathe a bit better. New spoilers have been added to the trunk-lid.We are assuming that this LFA will be a very powerful final version of the flagship supercar.

    So let me guess the price... $1,000,000?

    Nice find though.

    I like the new exhaust tip location. I'm sure the price will be much closer to the mil mark now.

    Bugatti and Lamborghinis are VW. If a company that makes beetles can make veyrons and aventadors, a company that makes corollas can make the LFA without being hated because of the brand.

    This lfa bashing because its a toyota is getting old...

    honestly the LFA makes one of the best sounds out of all road cars. Carrera GT also. Pure NA V10 heaven.

    This.
    Now for the record... I would personally take a 456 Italia over it. BUT I appreciate what the LF-A is. It is certainly no slouch and is already a rare legend of sorts with only 500 units built. And even with the $350k price tag, Lexus loses money on each example!

    Nice lil' vid here. Skip to 2:18 for FIERCE acceleration/exhaust:
