Lexus LFA Special Edition AD-X spied



Lexus and its LFA may be still fairly young in the supercar world, but that doesn't mean the model has lacked for variants in its scant two-year existence. Last year we were given the Nürburgring Edition to chew on, and we've seen, periodically, some other very limited-edition models out and about.

The car that you see here – noted on the bodywork as "AD-X" – is another branch on the old family tree, then. Our sources indicate that the AD-X follows a naming convention for LFA special projects, the first of which going by AD-A, with an AD-B model also spotted over the last few months. All of the cars in question have been one-off models, so that is what we are anticipating with this red and white beauty, too.

Accenting the racy red/white livery are a black hood, roof, and wing; all of which are said to be unpainted carbon fiber, rather than a different shade of paint. That the car also wears an even more aggressive than standard body kit – you'll notice an extra chin spoiler on the front fascia of the car – which speaks to what we believe to be a higher level of performance overall. More power than the standard LFA's 552 horsepower could certainly be coaxed from the 4.8-liter V10, too. We'll wait for further word from Lexus and hope for a nice, round 600-horsepower output figure.

They keep denying, but there is something very sneaky going on.

My guess is still that it is the LFA 2 in its early development phase and they are trying different approaches out, which is why they have three different prototypes AD-A, AD-B and AD-X (an evolution of LFA 1).

I hope you guys bothered to read the description in the youtube video. Sounds curious.

I didn't get to the trackside today until late, just as Lexus had hired the whole Nürburgring for just 10 minutes on an exclusive basis.

The Lexus LFA AD-X then took a flying lap at full speed... definitely a lap-record attempt, in my opinion. If it's quick, then expect Lexus to release the results soon!

They only have to put stickier tires on the Ring edition and it'd be faster than anything on the street. I think they could go around sub 7:10, they already said they know a 7:12 is in the Ring edition. Makes you wonder what this thing is capable of.
