INVADER – Wide-body kits and performance upgrades for Japanese SUVs.
I don’t like SUVs much. Not much at all actually. But I couldn’t help coming back and taking a closer look at the INVADER stand. There’s something here.
Despite having been established as recently as 2009, INVADER, based out of Nogoya, Japan, has already managed to participate in the Geneva Auto Show. No small feat. They focus solely on Japanese automakers, modifying their vehicles from the inside out. This murdered-out, wide-body creation here is the L60, which is based on the Lexus LX 570. For starters, INVADER has taken the 5.7L engine of the donor car and with the help of a supercharger pump out 600hp (or 220 hp more than stock).
To help the engine breath better there’s a custom intake and exhaust as well as upgraded breaks and suspension to cope with the extra power. Then, of course, there’s the look of it. It’s a little Mad Max, a little military/police/swat vehicle and a little hip hop. The wide-body kit gives it an aggressive stance that would intimidate anything on the road. It’s so hideous that it works. Like the new Ferrari F12, it has an F1 inspired fog light mounted in the center of the rear bumper too.
22 inch, forged wheels also available in 24kt gold! More carbon fibre in the rear. Where are the parking sensors??
Carbon fibre goodies found in the interior as well.
INVADER also brought along with it the N40, which is based on a Nissan Patrol. As of the time of writing, I have no idea what they’ve done to the engine. It should get you by on looks alone though.
