After a lengthy lead time, Lexus has delivered its first LFA Nürburgring Package in Europe. As you might recall, Lexus unveiled the LFA Nürburgring Package over a year ago at the Geneva Motor Show.

But the LFA Nürburgring Package is probably one of the few cars worth a year-long wait, thanks to an up-rated suspension, an improved aero pack and a 562 horsepower versions of Lexus' 4.8L V8. As a result of those improvements, the LFA Nürburgring Package can get around its track namesake in just 7:22.85 - good enough for eighth place overall for a production vehicle.

The LFA Nürburgring Package is available in matte black, white, black or orange, but the first car delivered in Europe - which went to a lucky customer in the UK - was finished in range's signature orange with a black interior. Other interior colors on offer include purple and red.

Just 50 units of the LFA Nürburgring Package will be produced worldwide, and Lexus has priced the super car accordingly. At $465,000, the LFA Nürburgring Package is the most expense Japanese car ever.
