A Lexus LF-A mule has unofficially recorded a lap time on the Nordschleife of 7 minutes, 24 seconds. This is not in dispute. What is in dispute is how many seconds faster the LF-A's lap time is than that of the 2008 Porsche 911 GT2, the previous "King of the 'Ring" record holder. Wikipedia notes that the fastest 911 GT2 driven around the Ring posted a lap time of 7 minutes, 32 seconds.

Saw the LF-A roadster at NAIAS, and as much as I despise Lexus (aka: Toyota plus), that was a pretty hot looking car. It had some sort of goofy white plastic upholstery on the seats (:wtf:), but still, just a mean looking car.

That record is going down once the GT-R V-Spec comes out. I can't even think of a Lexus holding that record. But I am looking forward to what the ZR-1 will do as well

This was just posted up over on another forum I am on. http://www.motorauthority.com/news/supercars/video-nissan-gt-r-club-racer-caught-testing/#more-4526 the V-Spec model is supposed to be even faster, if that's the case then I'm going to start saving up right now!
