Alongside the massed ranks of tweaked Cayennes and X6s developed by German firms sat this, the Invader L60. From the front you wonder if it's based on the Range Rover Sport. But you soon realise the truth when you walk round the side - it's a Lexus 570 (which is itself based on the Toyota Amazon).
Japanese tuner Invader leaves the 5.7-litre V8 in place, but drops in a hefty supercharger to take power from 383bhp to 600bhp, enough to drop the 0-60mph time to 5.5 seconds. Brakes and suspension are uprated to match, the interior is re-trimmed and of course there's a set of 22in rims. Just 100 are being built and it's price on application.
