200 exclusive units of the Supercharged Lexus LX 570 will be available only for the Middle East, marking the 25th anniversary year of Lexus in 2014. With a boost in power and the usual comfort and infotainment technology features, the Lexus SUV is fully geared for urban traffic as well as combating the toughest off-road challenges.
According to Nobuyuki Negishi, Chief Representative of Middle East & North Africa Representative Office, Toyota Motor Corporation, “Lexus’s reputation for creating the best luxury SUVs has endured since the introduction of our first SUV, the LX 450 in 1996… This limited edition supercharged model gives its proud owners an immensely powerful, luxurious and capable SUV unlike any other vehicle in its class.”
The 5.7-litre V8 Engine with supercharger churns out 450 hp and 706 Nm of Torque teamed to a six-speed automatic transmission with standard full-time four-wheel drive. Ninety percent of that enormous torque figure streams in at just 2,200 rpm.
From Rock, Rock & Dirt, Mogul to Loose Rock and Mud and Sand – the Lexus LX 570 can take on any kind of terrain (Range Rover fans take note). The Crawl Control System with the driver-selectable low range for the transmission provides low-speed crawling capability for handling steep off-road declines efficiently. Shifting into low range engages Active Height Control, which serves to achieve increased ground clearance of two inches by raising the vehicle. The 5-step type in the speed control allows for precision control while driving.
