2008 Toyota Land Cruiser Got Pimped: Black Bison Edition

Although they rarely make the headlines, Japanese tuning houses exist too and today's piece of news does nothing more than to confirm this. Wald International, a tuning firm based in Japan, recently unveiled an aftermarket package for the 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser which is entitled "Black Bison Edition".

Just as its name suggests, the body kit is mostly covered in black, providing a more aggressive appearance to the SUV. As you can see for yourselves in the adjacent photos, the exterior upgrade includes new front and rear bumper as well as side skirts and quad-pipe exhaust. The front bumper now houses the foglights while the rear bumper also boasts a diffuser for improved aerodynamics.

The kit will be offered with either 21-inch chrome wheels or blacked-out Mahora M11C alloy wheels, according to a report by

What's interesting is that the Japanese tuner originally intended to release the aftermarket package only in Russia and Eastern Europe but it seems like it gets a remarkable success in several other regions, including the rest of Europe, Australia and even the Middle East.

In case you'd like to buy the whole aftermarket package, you'll have to pay no less than $6,300 and, if you want to further enhance the custom look of the car, you can do so by adding an additional sport muffler for $2,500.

Unfortunately, there are no engine upgrades, so you'll remain with the same output boasted by the stock Land Cruiser. The SUV is offered in a choice of three engines, two diesel and one petrol, as it follows: 3.0 D4-D (163 HP), 3.0 D4-D (173 HP) and 4.0-liter V6 generating 249 horsepower.
