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.
I'd definitely be interested in this. The link was broken so I wonder what this would msrp at in the U.S. if it were available. A regular LX at the dealer yesterday was $92k, so this would likely be $105,000+. It would make more sense for me to get a new Vette and a diesel pickup instead.
