White Lexus LX 570 with Larte "Alligator" Tuning Kit Looks Like the Predator

Russian companies are tuning up a storm these days, sometimes even targeting the weirder SUVs that German firms ignore. One example of this is the Lexus LX 570, which is like a tickled version of the Toyota Land Cruiser.

This full-size 4x4 is a viable alternative to the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, especially with the modifications brought by Larte. Their kit was presented in 2014, this being the second LX 570 to receive it.

Dubbed the Alligator, this aftermarket package was designed at their shop near Moscow. It consists of an aggressive front end, revised grille and a massive chromium brace. It looks a bit like the Predator with its mouth open, wouldn't you agree?

There are also new LED daytime running lights specially created by the German supplier - Nolden. Around the back, we see that it has an imposing bumper design with a diffuser stretching between the exhaust pipes. Matte black wheels with off-road rubber complete the look.

"Crisp lines, mesmerizing elegance - this is what can not but admire, that's why one chooses the car. The passion of our designers is to raise LEXUS brand line, leave a powerful Japanese SUV familiar, preserve the unique trapezoid grating, but gracefully insert an extra light, color, shadows, slots and a new sound to emphasize such qualities of the car as power and strength,"
the Russians claim.

No changes have been revealed for what's under the bonnet. That means we're dealing with a stock Lexus 5.7-liter V8 engine, which is good for 367 horsepower and 530Nm (393 lb-ft) of torque. 0 -100 km/h in 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 220 km/h (138 mph). The curb weight is 2,719 kg.
