Toyota’s Chief Test Driver, Hiromu Naruse, dies testing the new Lexus LF-A

Tragic news, Toyota’s Chief Test Driver, Hiromu Naruse died in a fatal car accident while testing the new Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Edition on the highway 410 near the Nurburgring. He supposedly collided onto on coming traffic and collided with 2 test drivers of a BMW vehicle.

While the two BMW test drivers survived the crash, the yet-unnamed Toyota driver died behind the wheel of the recently spied LFA Nurburgring Edition he was driving.

The report says that the driver of the LF-A was 67 years old and Toyota’s chief test driver, which leads us to believe that he is Hiromu Naruse, In addition to being the company’s chief test driver, Naruse is also Akio Toyoda’s personal driver and the Godfather of the LFA.

This is the same LF-A pictured below.

Could this be a blow to Lexus sale wise? hmmm I don’t believe it would, but on a safety aspect, we still don’t know the details of this accident.

Condolences goes out to the family of the Godfather of the LF-A, Hirumo Naruse. RIP…
