According to a recent press release from Lexus themselves, it appears that the company plans to make the official unveiling of the exclusive Nurburgring Package for its LFA supercar at the upcoming 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Showgoers and the world’s automotive press will get their first look at the package that offers even greater levels of performance from the V10 supercar in less than a month from now. The Nürburgring Package is available on a maximum of 50 of the 500 cars that are being built. Tasteful extra aerodynamic features are available, as are some technical revisions to improve handling and downforce and a minor engine output increase. The 2012 Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package is powered by the same 4.8-liter V10 engine found on the ‘regular’ supercar, but output has been raised by 10 horsepower to 562 hp, compared to the 552 horsepower developed by the normal version. The powerplant is mated to a 6-speed automated sequential gearbox that now swaps cogs 0.05 seconds faster, reaching 0.15 seconds per gear change. LFA Nurburgring Package comes in four exterior colors, more specifically white, orange, black and matte black, while the interior can be ordered in black, red, and violet. In a bit less exciting but equally important news, Lexus is also bringing the new CT 200h to Geneva, the first and only full hybrid model in the luxury hatchback segment, just ahead of its European market launch. autoevolution will be attending the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
