Lexus held its first-ever LFA owners event at the Laguna Seca Raceway on August 23, 2012. Scott Pruett, pro driver, provided some helpful hints to nearly two dozen owners as they try their hand at one of the most famous race tracks in the country.

Peak torque is 354lb-ft at 6,800rpm with 90 percent available between 3,700 and 9,000 revs. The Nurburgring Edition is a special lighter version with more horsepower and a more track-biased setup.
