Some say Wald is so busy tuning high-end European cars that they’ve forgot about their own Japanese brands! But they haven’t!

Check out their package for the Lexus LX570 SUV. This is an answer to the LX Invader, probably the only full-on tuning package for the big Lexus. But now Wald is offering a black bison alternative.

As with every Bison kit, the LX too is quite busy and show offy, but in a cool way. You get a new front bumper, revised rear bumper with a diffuse thingy, roof spoiler, side steps, four exhausts pipes, smoked lights, LED lights, the whole shebang.

It also gets striking MAHORA M13 wheels in size 24 inches and lowered suspension. The car is based on the LX570 which is not offered in Japan.

And it has the same old recipe of all-black theme with a unique body kit consisting of revised bumpers, tall side skirts, roof and boot lid wings, stylish side vents, a massive rear diffuser and cool vertical exhausts. This car also benefits from a blacked-out grille, LED lights in the bumper, and Wald designer wheels in matte black available in 22 and 24-inch size.

Wald is still reluctant to do engines or interior. Their work is strictly visual!

Platinum Motorsport has established itself as a fully fledged tuner in America.

Here’s their take on the Lexus LS460 Sport which is a very fine package. They went for a dark and discrete theme rather than vulgar kits which suits the style of the LS.

It also gets a new grille, smoked lights and presidential tinted window. As always the car is slammed on big wheels, which in this case is very huge at 22-inch size.
