Japanese tuner ASI has a new programme for the Lexus LX 570 luxury SUV which makes it look and perform much more aggressively. Called the LX 570 Invader, ASI insists it is one of the most thrilling off-roaders out there.

Performance figures were not supplied but ASI says it has special plans for the 5.7-litre V8 motor. In standard form the engine produces 280 kW (381 hp/ 376 bhp) and is mated to a 6-speed sequential-shift automatic transmission.  However, ASI is promising at least 441 kW (592 bhp / 600 PS) and a 0 - 100 km/h sprint time of under 5 seconds.
