H Lexus ανακοίνωσε σήμερα ότι θα βάλει το LFA να τρέξει για 4η συνεχόμενη φορά στον 24ωρο αγώνα του Nurburgring, στην ίδια κατηγορία με αυτή που θα συμμετέχει η Aston Martin V12 Zagato. Για το promo της συμμετοχής της έδωσε και ένα video από τον 4-ωρο αγώνα VLN που συμμετείχε το περασμένο Σάββατο και τερμάτισε στην 5η θέση με μέση ωριαία ταχύτητα 161 χλμ/ώρα.

Επίσης επειδή ένα video δεν είναι αρκετό, δες ένα κάτασπρο LFA να driftάρει κατά την διάρκεια του αγώνα drift, Tokyo D1 Grand Prix 2011.
