Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package smashes Nordschliefe production record with 7:14 lap

http://www.autoblog.com/2011/09/02/l...ntent=FaceBook

Quote:
The web is afire with news that Lexus has managed to demolish the standing production-car record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. The news comes courtesy of EVO Magazine's own Chris Harris and Lexus itself via the miracle of Twitter. Lexus test driver Akira Iida reportedly managed to twist the LFA Nürburgring Edition around the infamous circuit in 7:14. If true, that time puts the carbon-fiber exotic four-seconds ahead of the previous production-car champion, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, at 7:18, and it puts the LFA Nürburgring Edition in the top five quickest vehicles to ever run the track.

Impressive.

List of all of the "ring" lap times:

This time is REALLY fast. Not far off from basically full out race cars.

That's probably the same one. Good to see the owner driving it.
