Cr*p!!

Even Lexus dealerships don't know the proper specs of the cars. The engine size is 4.8 Liter V10 for both cars. The Nurburgring edition and standard LFA have 563 HP (571 PS or DIN HP) and 552 HP (560 PS or DIN HP) respectively.

I kind of like the fixed rear wing side spoilers feature

Now for the one up

My dealer, Catena in NJ sent out a eBrochure that said

IS can be had with a 205 liter engine
RX can be had in RWD
LX and GX can be had in RWD

I emailed the clown who sent it out and copied my salesman and have not heard back from them

Cool Lexus LFA info!

Look at what we found.... The actual specs (insider at JM Lexus) for the Lexus LFA # 420 and # 425.... We spoke to them and will correct the information. Artwork not that bad lol!

Thanks JM

The window sticker for the LFA that ended in 035, also delivered to JM Lexus referred to the winglets as

Speed sensing rear wing with side spoilers

I believe we have seen at least one ring car window sticker that also had the hp wrong (carried over from the base car)

i think it's shown here too. the last picture of the sticker, it says whitest white, so that seems to be the one for the ring car. it also says 552hp

Should be 11 HP. Not 10. (571 PS or DIN HP = 563.1 HP)

Technically, 560 PS or DIN HP is exactly 552.4 HP so it could either be rounded up to 553 HP or rounded down to 552 HP.

Ok...? I said the "Nurburgring Package" details on the right side says such and such. Not arguing over 1hp.

^^ Exactly...!!!

Its been "Officially" stated as 552 HP on Base & 562 HP on Ring Edition, for the last several years...

Not sure why all of a sudden there is a confusion on this factual information.. LoL
