GENEVA — Nearly a year after it was first announced, the 2012 Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package makes its public debut in early March at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show.

The Nurburgring Package will add $70,000 to the LFA's base price of $375,000. A matte-black finish costs another $20,000.

Lexus said the new package will be limited to just 50 cars, out of the LFA's total production run of 500 units.

The Nururgring Package features enhanced aerodynamics and downforce, with a fixed rear wing, a larger front spoiler and fin-type side spoilers, all made from carbon fiber. The suspension also has been retuned and mesh-type wheels fitted with high-grip rubber.

Output on the 4.8-liter V10 has been increased by 10 horsepower to 562 hp and shift changes on the six-speed sequential gearbox cut to 0.15 second. Lexus says 0-60-mph acceleration takes less than 3.7 seconds and top speed is 202 mph.

Edmunds.com says: At $465,000 for the full monte, the most expensive Japanese production car ever. — Paul Lienert, Correspondent
