Default Lexus releases supercharged LX 570.

Looks like it is just for the GCC.

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.


450hp and 706NM

Agree. The black cheapens the look.

What's the power out on this beast?

Looks sick

But I have a question though:

Is this aftermarket or third-party tuning? Or modification job?

That thing looks so dorky being lowered and still having the wheels so inset into the body.

It is low because the Active Height Control is set to the lowest setting. Once it gets going it isn't actually this low . The locals will be running king coilovers and steelies on this in no time After all it is a Land Cruiser.

Wow factory upgraded and installed from Japan? HOLY ******

Are they planning on making this official to the general public? (I haven't seen or heard any official announcements or news statements about it)

I don't think any have been sold yet, but they should start soon. I will update this thread with further information about hp figures and official pricing once further information is available.

to be exact, is this factory supercharger on the lx570 (factory installed), together with all the badges?

or this is an aftermarket (even if done by dealership) install?
