2016 Lexus LX 570 unveiled at Pebble Beach – IAB Report

Riza

Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!

Complete resdesign saw only the door panels carried over.

The sequence of Lexus LX 570 spyshots and leaks has come to an end with the reveal of the SUV at Pebble Beach this week.
