The Lexus crazy folks over at The Lexus Enthusiast have uncovered a Japanese story about a possible Nürburgring Edition of the new LFA supercar, adding credibility to earlier reports that a more track-focused model is on the way. The extra high performance model is reportedly named after the world famous race track/public road where the LFA underwent extensive testing and which is used as a benchmark to rate all high-performance vehicles.

Upgrades to the LFA Nürburgring Edition are to include a front splitter, a large rear spoiler (fixed), a stiffer suspension, lighter weight wheels, stickier tires and a slight bump of 10-hp. This would bring the LFA's total engine output to 562-hp from its 4.8-liter V10.

The model will be offered in just four colors: black, matte black, the orange color seen above and white.

Lexus has yet to confirm details of a Nürburgring Edition LFA, but we're excited about the possibility, although we're a bit surprised the carbon chassis creation is being eclipsed so quickly.

If I was a respective LF-A owner/leaser I would be pissed about this news. You go spend $375K on what you think is the most exclusive car Lexus has ever made...and then they come out with a faster/better/more exclusive version.

Although, if I was a respective LF-A ower, that means that I have boatloads of cash and I guess it really donesn't matter. so, Cool, bring it on.

Everyone seems to do that, though. (Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera comes to mind, as does the 430 Scuderia)
