Toyota Land Cruiser V8 by Delta4x4

Germany's Delta4x4, as the name suggests, focuses on SUV and other off-roaders. Last month the Bavarian company released their upgrades for the Toyota Land Cruiser V8.

Starting with the engine, the tuners manage to extract an additional 32 hp from the seventh generation Land Cruiser resulting in 318 hp with 780 Nm of torque and a 218 km/h top speed. Not every driver is at ease with such power under the hood, so Delta4x4 also offer a high performance brake system. This brake system consists of a six-piston caliper, a 396 mm perforated brake disc and a steel wrapped hose providing precise pedal response and extreme stopping power.

The usual aesthetic options are available too, like an EU approved front bar (a bigger front bar is available for export markets), handmade 101 mm stainless steel side and rear bars, stainless steel double pipe exhaust system and 17 to 23 inch wheels.

It all comes at a price though, the brake system for one costs Euro 6,760, the front, side and rear bars will set you back almost Euro 5,000, the engine managment update almost Euro 2,000 and the exhaust system Euro 700.

Press release:

Just in time for the official German launch on March 8th 2008, delta4x4 introduces a complete new custom concept for the new Land Cruiser. As is expected delta4x4 combines excellent craftsmanship with sophisticated technology to deliver accessories for the discerning SUV driver.

For some the power surge of up to 218 kmph by the delta4x4 performance increase compared to the standard 286 kmph could cause a little anxiety but with the delta4x4 high-performance brake system any uneasiness is quickly forgotten. This high-performance brake system includes a six-piston caliper, a 396 mm perforated brake disk and a steel-wrapped hose. It provides a precise pedal response, allowing an allround secure and relaxing driving pleasure at a maximum torque of 780 Nm.

”Back to basics“ the Bavarian 4 wheel specialist delta4x4 prides itself on high quality handmade stainless steel accessories

delta4x4 fits Toyota’s new SUV with either a front bar that meets EU pedestrian protection safety standards or a bigger front bar for the export market. Also in the line handmade and hand polished 101mm stainless steel side and rear bars. To accentuate its powerful appearance and to render the vehicle’s sound more deep and mighty, delta4x4 has equipped the V8 with a stainless steel double pipe exhaust system.
The broad sporty wheels and the elegant 17 to 23 inch rim program provides the vehicle with a high urban profile.
