Lexus LX 570 Supercharger

Lexus is obviously a name associated with quality, luxury and superior customer satisfaction. The brand reputation grew fast and Lexus became America's best-selling line of luxury motor vehicles. Lexus belongs to the global Toyota family, whose members together constitute the world's third-leading automaker. So they must do everything perfect to keep the high standards of the brand. Very recently Lexus has introduced in Kuwait the Lexus LX 570 Supercharger special edition.


As the name clearly suggests, the Lexus LX 570 Supercharger is equipped with a supercharger kit. The same V8 5.7-liter engine is powering the vehicle. However, it generates 450 bhp (335 kW), not 383 bhp (286 kW) like the stock model. Still, it can do more than this, as we have already seen in a tuning package offered by Hennessey, who made the car develop 500 bhp (373 kW). Lexus mated the engine to a six-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the set of 20-inch alloy wheels. Performance figures are still unknown, but it should be slower than the upgraded LX 570 which only takes 6.6 seconds to do the 60 mph (96 km/h).


Did you think it was all about an engine upgrade? Well, no. The Lexus LX 570 Supercharger is also equipped with xenon headlights with LED low-beams, power tailgate, front and rear parking sensors and satellite navigation. A Mark Levinson sound system will warm the inside atmosphere of the vehicle.  Heated and cooled front seats, leather upholstery and a wood trim come to offer a plus of elegance to the car. The vehicle is available in Kuwait and there are high chances to see it n other markets, too.
