Trick or treat!

Criteria for being a Halloween Hypercar? Amazing performance, stunning design, delicious details and exclusivity for the ages.

What meets these criteria in spades?

The 2012 Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package — an orange stunner with V10 legs for miles and a bite to sate even the sweetest tooth.

Enjoy these photos – we have never seen many of them published in their full glory, and they are worth considering in detail.

Interspersed are the LFA’s official specs from Lexus.com.

Overall, the Nurburgring pack brought a fixed rear wing, an extra 10-horsepower, firmer and remapped suspension and transmission, and a 7.14-second lap time around the green hell.

Here is Chris Harris in the driver’s seat.
