The Lexus LFA may be four years old, but it’s one of the best sounding supercars of all time.
One of the great characteristics of a supercar is its wonderful sound. While modern supercars are among the best sounding vehicles in the world, there’s one supercar that will also be one that’s ranked among the very best—the Lexus LFA.
Forget about turbochargers and superchargers, the Lexus LFA is from a time when naturally aspirated engines were king. Just like many other supercars, the original LFA was defined by its insane engine, high-tech design and blistering performance. But that wasn’t enough for Lexus, as the automaker was clearly set out to prove that it could make a supercar to go toe-to-toe with the best from Italy.

The world thought the Lexus LFA was more than enough for an entry into the supercar realm, but Lexus created an even more track-focused variant with the LFA Nurburgring Package. With more downforce and even more power, the LFA Nurburgring Package was an epic supercar that raised the bar for the automaker and Japanese supercars.
With a tuned version of the same 4.8-liter V10 out of the original LFA, the Nurburgring Package was good for 562 hp and a zero to 62 mph time of just 3.7 seconds. Besides its blistering speed, the special-edition supercar put out the same glorious howl that the original LFA was known for.
Only 500 models of the supercar were made, so seeing one being pushed on the track is a rare treat.
It may be old, but the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package is one of the best sounding supercars ever made. Don’t believe us? Spend a few minutes listening to the supercar run around Monza at full throttle and you’ll see what we’re on about.
