Lexus LX 570 JTGrey Racing


For most people Lexus cars are just soft and roly poly cars with lots of leather and wood and a good air condition! So the idea of a Lexus off-road racer is hard to digest for them.

Specailly if it’s a Lexus LX! But the fact is that they are quite active in the sport and following a successful year in 2010 they’re coming back for the new season of SCORE Stock Full Championship with a specially prepared LX 570 race car developed for Jeo Becal of JTGrey Racing team.

Based on the production Lexus LX 570 V8 the car gets extreme modifications in order to become a full-on off-road monster that’s capable of repeating last year’s magnificent performance that resulted in like six first places and a second. The highlights of the JTGrey’s LX include 37-inch BF Goodrich Baja TA projectrace tires, custom King Racing shocks, Sparco race seats, and nine KC Hilites HID’s.
