Kyosho miniatures are always very popular among the collectors, they stand out from the crowd in terms of processing quality: gap dimensions and detailing are at the very top. And this also counts for the models of the so-called big SUV's of the brand Lexus, which is part of the house of Toyota: With the Lexus LX 570 in scale 1:18, Kyosho delivers again a first class job, which knows how to fascinate with its details. Would you like a first taste? Openwork radiator grille, correctly reproduced panels in the engine compartment, inside perfectly reproduced headlight technology. The hinges of the front hood - filigree, inconspicuous and therefore definitely to be classified as a benchmark in this area. The modelcars are available under item number 08955T and come to collectors in grey metallic with the name sonic titanium.
The massive miniatures offer the collector not only a working engine hood, four openable doors, but also an upward swinging, two-part tailgate. The dashboard and the interior door panels were built with great care: The leather above the instruments, which also contain displays and monitors, is painted with soft varnish; the wood decor is framed with silver-colored decorative elements. Flocked floor and prototypical seats, some of which are folded up, round off the good impression in the interior. The glass roof and side windows are darkened. The alloy wheels allow a look at the braking system of the model. Once again, the accuracy with which the headlights and taillights are inserted into the painted zinc die-cast environment is impressive. Quality: Always top quality at Kyosho.
But with all the enthusiasm we don't want to forget the key data of the role model. A SUV, called LX, exists at Lexus since 1996. The here presented modelcars replicate the third generation or their facelift, which came to the market in 2016. Its almost 6.0 liter big eight-cylinder transferrs 270 kW / 367 hp to the four-wheel drive and developes a maximum torque of 530 Newton meters (Nm). Thanks to its six-speed automatic transmission, the LX 570 accelerates to 100 in 7.7 seconds. The top speed is reached with 220 kilometers per hour. The bottom line is that the modelcars, which are over 28 centimeters long, can be judged so well that the team at ck-modelcars.de would not be surprised if their fans “walk” around this speed to order, especially up to March 15th, 2021, where one can still benefit from the winter sale.
