    This limited edition LFA will be available in four exterior colors – whitest white, orange, black and matte black complemented by a choice of three interior colors – black, red, and violet.  All come with a carbon fiber center console and door trim.  The Nürburgring Package will carry a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $70,000.  Matte black will carry an additional cost of $20,000.  The standard LFA carries a MSRP of $375,000.
