Runs from 0-60 mph in 6.6 seconds
Hennessey has introduced a new HPE500 supercharger package for the Lexus LX 570.
Designed to give the model some extra oomph, the package includes a TVS supercharger, upgraded fuel injectors, a high-flow air filter and an optimized ECU. Thanks to these modifications, the 5.7-liter V8 engine produces 500 bhp (373 kW) and 530 lb-ft (718 Nm) of torque – an increase of 117 bhp (87 kW) and 127 lb-ft (172 Nm). This enables the SUV to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.6 seconds and run the quarter mile in 14.6 seconds at 98 mph (158 km/h).
The package also adds exterior badging and an individually-numbered plaque on the center console.
