Lexus is apparently preparing another one-off special edition LFA, as these spy shots from the Nurburgring reveal.
We've been inundated with spy shots over the past few days as carmakers have descended on the Nurburgring en masse to test out their latest creations. The latest player to run around the German circuit known as the Green Hell is this hardcore version of the Lexus LF-A. Codenamed AD-X, the test mule appears to be another LFA special project, following the AD-A and AD-B models seen over the past few months. The AD special editions are one-offs, so we expect this white and red model to follow suit.
The prototype's black hood, roof, pillars and spoiler are unpainted, revealing their bare carbon-fiber weave. It's also wearing an aggressive body kit, red wheels and trim, and a more pronounced front air splitter to keep it planted to the road and track. The stock LFA manages 552 horsepower from its 4.8-liter V10, which could easily be tuned to around the 600-hp mark, a number more befitting a one-off special edition high-performance supercar like this one.
