Lexus has finally released official photos of their LF-A prototype which will compete in the grueling 24-hour endurance race at Germany's famous Nürburgring.
Although the company is keeping details a closely guarded secret, they did state that the 200+ mph supercar is powered by a 4.8 liter V10 engine which produces 500 bhp. The sleek carbon fiber LF-A prototype will be entered by Japan's Gazoo Racing team and will be driven by a variety of professional race car drivers, Toyota engineers, and Lexus dealers.
AND THEN THERE WERE TWO
The Lexus LF-A concept car has never been camera shy, but it has not been seen like this before. Here for the first time is not one, but two of the sleek V10, 500bhp sportcars pictured parked side by side and in race livery ready for this weekend's Nürburgring 24-hour race.
Entered by Gazoo Racing, the team hopes to repeat its class winning form in the 4-hour race earlier in the year. The team, made up of professional drivers, Toyota test drivers, dealers and one very enigmatic driver known only as "Morizo", is tackling the race as part of the development programme for the 200mph+ car.
Gazoo is a Japanese market, Toyota-owned, e-commence website that aims to "create a new relationship between automobiles and people in the new IT era". Gazoo has its own racing team and this will be the third attempt at the famous German race.
