So of course, when the 2015 model debuted in Pebble Beach with a plush QX80 Limited pack and new LED lighting, the LARTE folks were quick to take note.
Since those first QX80s started turning heads in Monaco with wild styling mods, Larte has expanded globally — with Cali and German offices doing great tunes on the Lexus LX570, Merc GL, Tesla Model S, QX60, QX70 and more.
Time to take the new knowledge and design vision back onto the QX80 base. The results are striking, to say the least.
A full monochrome nose removes every bit of brightwork, while a 10-piece body kit extends the QX80’s pure, creamy panel shapes deep toward the pavement. Expressive new slashes appear at the bumpers on both ends, with tasteful and classy execution. From afar, it is a killer silhouette on 24-inch three-piece forged alloys. From up close, its detail intricacy will make you want to touch its vents.
Functional ones too on the hood this year! The QX80’s dome hood shape is carved with four new ports above the headlamps, beside the round hood. Extra venting, plus more growl noise from the QX80’s absolutely fantastic 5.6-liter V8 engine.
This year, the new lighting package includes triple functional LED blades in the bumpers, plus a dual-mode sport exhaust system. Quad pipes with switchable open mode will make this beast howl like a werewolf!
Optional Rotura brakes are available, but no tweaks to the engine or suspension to far. We’d love to see Larte Design offer a K&N cone intake, plus some air springs for adjustable ride height.
The new pack is called MISSURO and is available now for global orders. We’ve detailed the items included at the footer of this page, plus a video of this high-fashion launch from Larte Design in 88 photos.

What’s new in Infiniti QX80 tuning kit?
Restyled front and rear fascias, radiator grill, three-mode LED lighting, and a new exhaust system make up the package. Up front, additional vents above the headlights are not merely aesthetic elements as they provide extra cooling for the engine compartment. Multifunction LED lighting under the headlights serve as daytime running lights, parking lights and turn indicators.
At the rear, the high performance exhaust system – equipped with an electronic sound control valve – is finished off by polished stainless steel tips which compliment the lines of the taillights.
Front and rear fascias are constructed from strong – yet lightweight – basalt fiber composite; a material widely used in the aerospace industry. In addition to its unquestionable strength, basalt fiber is an environmentally friendly material that is non-toxic, non-flammable, and alkali and acid resistant.
Specifically painted segments in select body elements harmoniously combine with the contours of the QX80’s headlights. The image is completed with 24-inch, three-piece modular wheels featuring forged centers. At the discretion of the buyer, the Imperator may also be equipped with a powerful braking system from Rotora, featuring 8-piston calipers, massive ventilated rotors high-performance pads and braided stainless steel brake hoses.
LARTE Design’s commitment to excellence gives the QX80 Missuro the commanding edge.
