The Lexus LF-A has been spied yet again on the challenging Nurburgring race circuit in Germany as engineers hunt down the benchmark lap time of the Nissan GT-R.

Lexus has reportedly refused to sign-off on the LF-A project until it has toppled the 7.26 minute lap time of the GT-R and considering its extended development time this is proving to be quite difficult.

Without even having been released for public sale the LF-A will line-up in the Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race as a means of honing the car under extreme racing conditions.

Using a front-mid-engine layout, the prototype features a 4.8-litre, V10, engine classed as ‘close-to-production’ that develops more than 365kW, mated to a paddle-shift, sequential-manual transmission.
