High-res photos: http://www.worldcarfans.com/111090736364/lexus-confirms-lfa-nrburgring-lap-time-of-714-video
We now have the official track time for the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition.
Driver Akira Iida clocked a lap time of 7:14.64 on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife on August 31. The special edition LFA did it using its standard-issue (road-legal) Bridgestone Potenza RE070 tires.
The LFA Nürburgring Package is scheduled to go into a limited-run production in 2012. Only 50 units will be from a total LFA production run of 500 models.
The Nürburgring Edition of the LFA comes with a carbon fiber body kit, a re-tuned suspension and an upgraded 6-speed sequential gearbox. It is powered by a 4.8-liter V10 engine with 562 hp (419 kW / 570 PS) - the standard LFA has an output of 412 kW (560 PS). The complete package costs an additional $70,000 but delivers a 0-100 km/h sprint of just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 hits the Nürburgring
To demonstrate the improvements on the 2012 Corvette, Chevrolet has
returned to the Nürburgring with the range-topping ZR1.
As the video shows, the car - which features a supercharged 6.2-liter V8
engine with 638 hp (476 kW / 647 PS) and 604 lb-ft (818 Nm) of torque -
lapped the legendary Nordschleife in 7:19.63 which is more than six seconds
faster than the previous Corvette
record that was set back in 2008.
To get the improved time, the ZR1 was equipped with the new PDE performance
package which has a full-width rear spoiler and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup
Zero Pressure tires that are "optimized for warm, dry conditions to
increase cornering and handling capability."
2012 Porsche 911 (991) TV-commercial
Porsche has officially released the 2012 911 (991) model.
As expected, the 911 has been stretched some, with a wheelbase 100 mm (10
cm/3.9 inches) longer than it's predecessor.
The new 911 Carrera also comes with a body made of intelligent
aluminum-steel for reduced weight and greater rigidity. The car has a wider
track at the front and rides on 20-inch wheels.
Under that rear bonnet comes a 3.4 liter boxer engine with 350 PS (257 kW /
345 bhp) for the standard Carrera and a 3.8 liter with 400 PS (294 kW / 394
bhp) for the Carrera S (torque figures were not provided).
The Carrera S with the PDK transmission does the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in
just 4.3 seconds - 4.1 with the Sport Plus function in the optional Sport
Chrono package. Those numbers are 4.6 and 4.4 seconds, respectively, for
the standard 911 Carrera.
Other technologies available include the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control
(PDCC), available for the first time on the Carrera S, which provides an
optimized cornering with intelligent distribution of lateral forces.
The 2012 Porsche 911 will make its global debut at the Frankfurt motor show
on September 13. The model goes on sale on December 3 but will start taking
orders as early as September 1.
Prices in Germany will start at €88,038 for the 911 Carrera and
€102,436 for the Carrera S, VAT included. In the United Kingdom 911
models will be in Porsche Centers from December 17, 2011 at £71,449 and
£81,242, respectively. Prices in the U.S. are listed at a base MSRP of
$82,100 and $96,400 (excluding destination).

Lexus LFA Nordschleife lap
A lap around the Nürburgring Northschleife. My first time on the
Nordschleife, didn't know the track well. Drove a few laps on PS3 a day
before. Enough to remember the 1st third of the track, the rest was
familiar, bot not enough.
Made A LOT of mistakes, overshifted a lot trough the whole lap. Probably
because of the excitment, so don't blame me :) Amazing expirience. Great to
be able to look at the speedo too. The video hides true speed very well.
Still in love with the engine and the sound of the car. The LFS is
magnificent, sublime on the road and track. Best supercar I've driven. So
balanced, so poised and with enormous levels of grip. Will remember this
for the res of my life. Was one of the highlights of my journalistic career
and I get chills just looking at this ...
Timed the lap, and I think it would be around 8min05sec. Good&fast for my
first time at the Ring. The car was a normal LFA, not the Nürburgring
edition that did the best laptime for the LFA model.

they are available for purchase.

The Nürburgring takes it up a notch to a starting price of around $445,000
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have

NEW Porsche 918 Spyder onboard Nurburgring 6' 57" record lap
The Porsche 918 Spyder supercar has conquered the 20.6-kilometre record lap
around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than seven minutes. Achieving
a best time of exactly 6 minutes and 57 seconds, the super sportscar
equipped with a hybrid drive shaved 14 seconds off the previous record.
The record, which was previously held for four years, was even broken
during the first attempt in the test drive on the morning of September 4.
All three drivers -- Former European Rally Champion Walter Röhrl, Porsche
test driver Timo Kluck and Porsche factory driver Marc Lieb -- were quicker
than the existing record with each lap driving the two 918 Spyder models
used, and posted lap times of less than seven minutes on numerous
Ultimately, it was Marc Lieb who posted the absolute best time of 6.57
minutes, driving at an average speed of 179.5 km/h, as measured by Wige
Solutions. Marcus Schurig, editor-in-chief of sportscar magazine "sport
auto", was on hand as an objective observer of the record-breaking runs.
The two sportscars, which deliver an output of 887 bhp (652 kW), were
equipped with the optional "Weissach package" to increase the driving
dynamics, and lead out on the standard Michelin tyres developed
specifically for the 918 Spyder.
