We now have the official track time for the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition.
Driver Akira Iida clocked a lap time of 7:14.64 on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife on August 31. The special edition LFA did it using its standard-issue (road-legal) Bridgestone Potenza RE070 tires.
The LFA Nürburgring Package is scheduled to go into a limited-run production in 2012. Only 50 units will be from a total LFA production run of 500 models.
The Nürburgring Edition of the LFA comes with a carbon fiber body kit, a re-tuned suspension and an upgraded 6-speed sequential gearbox. It is powered by a 4.8-liter V10 engine with 562 hp (419 kW / 570 PS) - the standard LFA has an output of 412 kW (560 PS). The complete package costs an additional $70,000 but delivers a 0-100 km/h sprint of just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
BMW ring Taxi vs Porsche 911 on the Nurburgring (The Nordschleife!)
This is the best race track in the world. The Nordschleife!
This is the one were every bike on the track gets in the way of the cars, but to be fair it isn't a race, and the bikers are only there sight seeing not to ride fast. This video is from 2007, BMW M5 vs Porsche 911 (the passenger is a biker and has just been riding round the track, now he goes in the Porsche, several times he says how 'incredible' the car is he even points out how much the bikes slow the cars down drastically especially after the bus, listen to him, the bikers think they are going fast!)
People can make excuses for the riders in this video, which is fine, but at the end of the day it's a video about cars not bikes, and for those saying it isn't Sabine, IT IS Sabine driving the BMW! it is the old M5 with 450 bhp!
I meant, it's easier to ride a bike than drive a car, to learn at least. Not to take anything away from the bike riders, it takes skill, lots of skill and balls of course, or stupidity, which ever you like. No I wont ride a bike at these kinds of speeds, I like being alive, yes I will drive a car at these speeds, it feels safe, even if it isn't!

EVO and GTR at the Nurburgring
GTR owner came over afterwards and was very enthusiastic :-) Apparently running around 550bhp, but I couldn't pass him on the straight after ex-muhle! In the end he let me past as I was a bit quicker through the corners and I think he said his tyres got a bit hot.
