Lexus to Sell Supercharged LX 570 in the Middle East?

Lexus LX Supercharger

Lexus will apparently begin selling a supercharged LX 570 in the Gulf Arab States — here are the first photos, found on the Toyota4Arab forum:

There’s also an image of the supercharged engine:

According to Club Lexus poster UZJ100GXR, this is an limited edition factory package and not an aftermarket or dealer installed option. There are no official details just yet, but the supercharger should boost the LX over 500 hp.

(The Lexus Technical Center in Russia successfully installed a TRD supercharger in an LX 570 in 2011, and the engine photo looks very much like the one above.)

Rear end looks horrible... tail lights are ugly and the s u p e r c h a r g e r looks tacky. Everything else is wonderful

It's the Middle East Lexus distributor, purchasing TRD superchargers for 5.7 engines and putting a Lexus logo on it. Not factory installed.

Indeed, you can already get the supercharger for the Tundra, right? Surely this isn't 6 years in the making. :)

About time that the Supercharger found its way to the LC platform...unfortunately, the kit looks a bit on the ricey side (The Supercharger badge looks so Pep Boys). I suppose it will appeal to the many shieks and shahs of the Middle East, where gas is cheaper than water.
