The Lexus version of the Toyota Land Cruiser 200 is sold overseas as the “LX 570.” The full appearance of the model to be introduced in Japan has been leaked overseas.
The leaked photos were posted on the Instagram account of hamad1two3. The leaked photos show the newly improved Lexus 570 that had just been unloaded in the harbor.
The LX 570 was announced at the New York Auto Show in April 2007 as the Lexus version of the Toyota Land Cruiser 200. Its 5.7L V8 gasoline engine, which is not mounted to the Japanese version of the Land Cruiser 200, emphasizes its orientation as a luxury car.
The 2013 LX 570 was introduced at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2012. Since the debut of the current model, this will be the first significant update to the LX 570. The updated LX 570 has a new face, featuring a spindle grille and the new face of Lexus design, which has been introduced starting with the new GS.
This is the second time that the photos of the updated Lexus LX 570 have been leaked. There is a possibility that this model will be launched in the Japanese market in late August.
