One of our members created a thread about installing the Tundra/Sequoia TRD supercharger on his 2013 LX570:

I admit i am surprised Lexus did this, but it is pretty exciting nonetheless.

The LX already sells around 15000 + a year over here, i think these will be sold out very quickly.

I would have preferred if it looked like the normal LX without the kit and white tail lights and ''Supercharger'' in the back.

Lexus LX cabernet interior ( locally known as Garnet, been out since late August ). They headliner color is black now on darker interior models, previously it was grey. You also get an option of either black or beige headliner for the tan interior.



Interesting UZJ. Even though this is a special model, is it possible that both these new LX570 taillights and these changes to the Land Cruiser (200 Brownstone) are a swan song MY2015 minor refresh ahead of a MY2017 redesign?

We discussed this much earlier and so far the 200-Series was updated in early 2010, early 2012, and now possibly 2014 ahead of the 300-Series in 2016?

Cmk1, i have a feeling the LC/LX are getting an update sometime in the next couple of months and it will be the last major update before the next generation is unveiled sometime in late '16 as a '17 MY
Sort of like the 60 series when it got updated the last couple of years before the 80 was unveiled . It had a new engine, redesigned dash and front end , which hinted to the design of the next generation model.

Meaning we would see an updated MY15/MY16 200 while the MY17 is the all new 300 series.
10 years of production - 2007-2016 -



..

I actually saw a truck loaded with brand new LX 570's coming out of the port and one of them was the supercharged version. It definitely stood out.

I live in Dubai, and i call BS. I highly doubt this is a factory installed kit it. everything about this looks tacky, most likely a dealer installed. I may be wrong but i highly doubt this is true

Here are pictures of it from the port. I Know a friend who works at the port and he sent me these pics and he tells me they come down from the Ship with all the goodies.
Even though i admit...i am not a fan of the way this looks and i much prefer the normal LX .

With a supercharger, I'd say LX-F, not f-sport.

If gas was as cheap as it is over there, I'd be driving a gas guzzler too.

''The Supercharged LX 570 being offered in the Gulf is a limited factory job with the approval of chief engineer Sadayoshi Koyari.

This is based on the TRD USA blower kit for the 5.7L V8 Tundra & Sequoia. (If you find an underhood shot of a blown Tundra or Sequoia it’ll look the same.)

The Middle East supercharged 570 special is a limited edition run including the appearance package and special badging.''

Seems to me that we will probably see a permanent LX supercharged model in the next couple of years, maybe when the next gen is released, along with a possible hybrid LX....
I'm sure they already tested it out and will further enhance it with the future generation/models. I bet they will be sold out in no time.
