Lexus LX 600 Transformed Into Serious Off-Roader

Tuning / Comments

The special model has been kitted-out with heavy off-roading tech

Lexus and Jaos have put together this unique LX600 build to showcase the car's off-roading capabilities which can be enhanced by aftermarket parts. This unit will be showcased at the tuner's booth at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon taking place this weekend, but Lexus is proudly declaring its approval of the subtle but effective rework.

Lexus says that with this off-road project, it is committed to offering a diverse range of products that meet the diversifying needs and lifestyles of its customers. Its all-new LX, which sources its bones from the Toyota Land Cruiser 300, is currently available in markets such as Japan and the USA and claims to offer improved refinement without compromising reliability, durability, and off-road driving performance.

Jaos has been involved in creating 4x4 and SUV parts since it was established in 1985. Its main goal has been to provide customers with the opportunity to "Experience a New Adventure" via providing their cars with the necessary equipment. This is exactly what we see with the Lexus LX600 Offroad Jaos version.

Included in this model is a collection of parts that have been cast with lightweight, high rigidity infusion-molded CFRP. New panels to the body consist of a front and rear skid protector and an over-fender type-R wheel arch extension. These are accentuated by a set of 20-inch titanium-gold Jaos Tribe Cross alloy wheels connected to 285/55R20 Toyo Open Country tires.

For a more rugged appearance, the firm has also fitted samples of its mudguards and a tail cutter while door protectors tie up the overall appearance. The Lexus LX600 was officially revealed in the final quarter of last year as the premium brand's flagship SUV. Despite the position in its line-up, the Toyota division is confident that this is a thoroughbred off-roader.

Under the hood sits Toyota's 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo engine which offers 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. This is distributed to the 4x4 system via a ten-speed automatic transmission. Giving it the edge on the off-road course is the Active Height Control system and Adaptive Variable Suspension which is supported by softer springs for improved grip, traction, and control.
