Considering that the Lexus LX570 is the ride of choice for VIPs worldwide, the exterior of the truck is remarkably demure.
Yes, the updated 2014 factory LEDs and grille design help distinguish the LX570 a bit from its Land Cruiser cousin — but where is the visual punch, the sex appeal and pure aggression of the hottest Cayennes, QX80s and Mercedes SUVs?
For an LX570 that will take you (*and your family!) safely into and out of hot zones around the world — while looking exotic, exclusive and even more expensive than ever — the Larte Design ‘Alligator’ pack is a very effective makeover.
The sharp and choppy nose and tail detailing has strong flavors of the best Lamborghini’s — all wild angles cutting the bluff front clip design into a much racier face. The sliced vents, fresh grille detailing and integrated double LED fog lamps down below are all layered and intersect in a fairly artful way. Certainly one that will draw eyeballs and flashbulbs far quicker than the stock machine.
Is this what buyers want? Perhaps not on UN missions — but back home, absolutely!
Expect to create a commotion wherever you go… with traffic on the 405’s fastlane clearing in front of you like Moses parting the Red Sea.
Larte Design has offices in Germany and California in addition to its home base in Moscow — providing a one-stop upgrade shop where owners can drop off their LX570 for its superhero conversion by the experts.
The body kit elements are sold together or a la carte, with global shipping and installation assistance available for customers worldwide. Ballpark pricing? Around $15k before installation and paint matching.
The Larte Alligator kit will fit any LX570 of this bodystyle — and the team could swap out a pre-2014 truck’s main headlights for the latest arrowhead LED units at the same time.
A wishlist for the a possible stage two Larte LX570? Some kind of lowered ride height and custom sill extensions to take the place of the factory running boards. We’d also nix the roof rack and perhaps add a supercharger, too. =]
Included below is the latest video plus 75 new photos of Larte Alligators in grey and white.
LARTE Design Lexus LX570 Alligator
The Lexus LX570 just joined the designer upgrade roster at Larte Design in California!
This monster-truck makeover sees the family/luxury SUV become something altogether darker, more sinister and more exclusive.
The trademark Larte Design style is present up front, where the makeover is the most significant with matte-effect dark trims and a newly-chiseled lower bumper.
The Larte Design LX570 program is dubbed “Alligator” and just debuted this week at the Moscow auto show — where buyers give a first-hand look at this stylish upgrade for Lexus LX570 owners.
LARTE Design Lexus LX570 Alligator
LARTE Design presents white Alligator based on the Lexus LX 570
White crocodiles and alligators are a very rare sensation and sometimes even regarded as holy animals. Now, LARTE Design presents a white Alligator on wheels – the specially tuned version of the popular Lexus LX 570. And holy cannoli: This bodywork is really adorable.
Premium tuner LARTE Design has turned the full-size SUV into a much aggressive car, using a complex body kit made of high-quality fiber-glass. Under the black radiator grille a huge silver brace makes for a predator-like appearance. Then we have the LED daytime running lights specially manufactured by the German supplier Nolden. The ragged front is also adorned by irregular edges, protrusions, slants and elements and huge air inlets bearing grids.
And the car also has a striking rear bumper with a diffuser insert of a different color. On the sides, we find narrow air slots, which fit the reptile look very well. The chromium-gleaming exhaust pipes in their striking rhomboid design are the hallmark of the LARTE Design exhaust system. The kicker is the electronic valve control, which provides drivers with a better range of sounds, if you put the pedal to the metal. See you later, Alligator!
