There is a new Supercharger special edition of the LX 570 being offered by Lexus in Kuwait that as it name implies it offers a supercharger kit. Motivation is provided by the same 5.7-liter V8 engine that now develops 450 bhp, considerably more than the standard configuration which puts out 383 bhp. Power is sent to the 20-inch rims with help from a 6-speed automatic gearbox which should make the car a lot quicker than the regular LX 570.
The model can be visually distinguished by its power tailgate, LED low-beams, front and rear parking sensors as well as a Mark Levinson audio system. The Lexus LX 570 Supercharger also comes with heated and cooled front seats, satellite navigation, wood trim and leather upholstery.

American tuner Hennessey has prepared an upgrade program for the Lexus LX 570. The tuner’s HPE500 supercharger package is installed on the V8 5.7-liter and comes along not only with a SVT supercharger but also with a high-flow air filter, better fuel injectors and a remapped ECU. As a result of these upgrades, the engine now delivers an extra 117 bhp and 127 lb-ft compared to the standard configuration of the engine which means the motor now churns an impressive 500 bhp and a maximum torque of 718 Nm.
The Lexus LX 570 by Hennessey will complete the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in a decent 6.6 seconds while running the quarter mile is done in 14.6 seconds at 98 mph (158 km/h). The aftermarket kit also encompasses an individually-numbered plaque fitted on the center console along with exterior badging.
