SAC unleashes “The Beast” Land Cruiser 200VX

"The Beast".

The engineers at Steves Auto Clinic have long suspected that the 4.5 D-4D V8 turbodiesel engine that hides under the bulging bonnet of the Toyota Land Cruiser VX200 could offer so much more. There must be more to this imposing off-roader than the 173kW and 615Nm that the turbodiesel engine is rated for when it leaves the factory in Japan, they reckoned. It is, after all, a V8 fitted with two turbos, so gaining extra power should be no problem!

After countless hours spent on the dynamometer, SAC have found a way to unleash the Toyota Land Cruiser VX’s hidden power. So much power was lying in reserve, they decided to call this power upgrade “The Beast”.
