Lexus GX460 Tows a Mig 31 Fighter
I'll go on record and say this: I quite like the 2014 Lexus GX460. Something of an odd statement for someone of my particular demographic to say, but the luxury SUV definitely has presence - or at least, that's what I thought to myself as I saw the Japanese behemoth in diamond white pearl hauling its way through the Grapevine stretch of the 5.
With its proportionally large fascia, the GX has been one of the best implementations of Lexus's love it or hate it spindle grill for 2014's models. So to supplement GX460 photo gallery, we also found this awesome little video of a previous generation GX460 towing a Russian Mig 31 fighter.
Note the video's original description was entirely in Russian - instead of transcribing, we decided to present the Google translation as is. Make sure to read it through in your best thick, Russian accent.
