When Lexus announced last month that its LF-A prototype enduro racer would be making a return to the ADAC Nurburgring 24-Hour, we got a sneak preview of the new livery that would be replacing last year's oh-so-drab matte black paint scheme.

Now we can gaze upon it in all its two-tone glory, a few days before it's due to get its nose covered with insect carcasses and flanks caked in brake dust.

In the LF-A prototype's last running of this event, mechanical issues pulled the Lexus down the leaderboard and resulted in the sole entry finishing 120th outright. A crash during qualifying certainly didn't help its cause either.

This time around though, there will be two LF-As, with one of them to be pedaled by Toyota President (and chief proponent of the LF-A program) Akio Toyoda. With many saying the LF-A will make its debut in production form at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show in October, it seems Toyota is taking its home-grown supercar very seriously indeed, and it's likely they'll be aiming high at the Nurburgring this weekend.
