Lexus LX570 Supercharged apparently offered in Kuwait
Lexus has apparently just launched a supercharged version of the LX 570 exclusively for the Middle East market, making its debut in Kuwait.
Arabic blog Qabaq posted details of the upgrade package for the LX 570 SUV, which consists of a supercharger added to the standard 5.7-litre engine. The standard motor produces 362 hp, but with the upgrade, power is bumped up to 450 hp, likely using a TRD supercharger of the kind available for the Toyota Tundra.
Subtle changes have been made to the interior as well, such as red leather seats, wood trim with red accents and “Supercharger” written across the tail-gate. Other features include xenon headlights with LED low-beams, power tailgate, front and rear parking sensors and navigation.
We have yet to hear details about performance figures but an 88 hp bump in output should definitely help improve the 0-100 kph time which currently sits at 7.8 seconds officially for the standard engine.
Assuming this isn’t just an initiative by the Kuwaiti dealer, it is highly likely the supercharged Lexus LX 570 will make its way to the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other GCC countries soon.
