Default OEM Lexus LX570 Supercharger

Looks like Lexus might have introduced a supercharged version of the LX570, in Kuwait. Less power than the Hennessey, but OEM support.

I might be interested in a few years if they introduce it as an aftermarket kit in the US! Without the body kit and badging...

maybe the market? for the 570, there is the big tundra market where they have a supercharger setup already, i think that's similar to the one that they put in the lx for selected market. so it's minimal cost to them.

the gx engine is in a much smaller market for them to develop anything. plus if they do it, it will hurt the lx (especially in the US market where there is no supercharged lx)

Keep in mind the GCC spec version has around 20 less hp than the US version. 362 vs 383 hp...so add another 21 hp to the 450hp.

I do like the blacked out chrome accents... Too bad the kit's not going to make it stateside.

Thanks for the blog link, IB Editor - I think a few of the numbers may be incorrect. Should be 450+HP, not 250. Also stock torque is already 403 lb-ft, so maybe over 500 with the SC?

I would not be surprised at all if the next gen LX had a new supercharged permanent trim which will probably be sold in all markets the LX is sold in.

My local stealer, LHM in Utah, installed a s/c on two LXs and RX.
Cost was $9k/ea. Unknown hp gains, much less manufacturer.
