Lexus LX 570 Supercharger special edition announced with 450 bhp


Launched in Kuwait

Lexus has launched a special "Supercharger" edition of the LX 570 in Kuwait which as you would imagine brings a supercharger kit.

Under the hood it's the same V8 5.7-liter engine but instead of the standard 383 bhp (286 kW) output it now develops 450 bhp (335 kW), still less than Hennessey's version which offers 500 bhp (373 kW). The engine is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission transferring power to those 20-inch alloy wheels. Performance figures have not been released but it should be a few tenths of a second slower than the tuned LX 570 which needs 6.6 seconds until 60 mph (96 km/h).

The special edition LX 570 has received xenon headlights with LED low-beams, power tailgate, front & rear parking sensors and satellite navigation. Also inside the cabin there's a Mark Levinson sound system, heated & cooled front seats, leather upholstery and a wood trim.
Already available in Kuwait, the Lexus LX 570 Supercharger could reach other Gulf markets in the near future.

Damn that's epic

And what makes it epic is that it's an official performance improvement/upgrade from the Toyota Group (and not some third-party aftermarket job from Henne****..........I mean Hennescrewed )

Im sure the guys at Hennessy can build you something similar and you'd retain your warranty.

This is not a 2015. It is a 2014 model, in case anyone is wondering.

Usually the next model year LX/LC arrives to the ports at the end of August with a production date of early August.


So far, i have heard that the LX/LC are receiving a face lift for the 2015 MY.

Also, i have seen a closeup picture of the LX at the port and the first letter in the factory paper on the window was E ( E = 14 ). If it was a 2015 it would have been F.

Beautiful shots of the LX570 Supercharged. Even though it might have been contradictory (in not being F-tuned), they should've released this as an LX-F.

Excellent point. I remember the VIN on my parents' LC200 starting with JTMHV, but I guess the Lexus is different or has Toyota changed VIN numbering?

With such high demand in the Middle East, I'd love to see Lexus offer some of these packages around the world in the next gen LX. Something like RR's Autobiography editions.

Yes, you are correct, however what i was referring to was part of the VIN which they have on the factory paper that refers to MY.



^ The pic above is of a 2012 LC ( C ) the 2014 LX Supercharged still reads E ( 2014 )

I think the all black looks really nice. US really is losing out but the LX does sell like hotcakes over there.

It's very interesting to me how there is such great discussion about these vehicle on THIS forum where the majority of the members are based in the US. These vehicles are pretty much nonexistent here.... Still don't know why, they are definitely amazing.
