Lexus LX 570 gets TRD body kit in Japan, likely coming to UAE & GCC
Toyota and Lexus do their best to differentiate their products, but cross-pollination is inevitable when the luxury Lexus brand’s flagship LX 570 model is a rebodied Toyota Land Cruiser. Now the Toyota Racing Development tuning arm, better known as TRD, is offering a body kit for the Lexus LX 570 in Japan.
The TRD kit offers nothing more than visual mods, with a full frontal grille-bumper replacement, a redone rear bumper that hints at a dual exhaust system (which it doesn’t really have), and new wheels. The parts are sold separately, with the sand-scooper front end costing US$ 2,100, the rear bumper costing US$ 730, and the wheels priced at a whopping US$ 6,800.
Word is the kit will be offered in the UAE and other GCC markets as a “sport” model. A TRD supercharger is available separately for the 5.7-litre V8 engine, but not as a unique trim via the local dealer any more as far as we know.
