Looks like: An LX 570 that’s ready to rumble through the wilderness
Defining characteristics: Suspension lift; giant roof rack; full-size spare tire and water cans on the back; 17-inch Evo Corse DakarZero wheels; 33-inch General Grabber X3 off-road tires
Ridiculous features: Everything on the J201 Concept serves a practical purpose, but seeing them all on a brand-new LX 570 is somewhat ridiculous.
Chance of being mass-produced: Zero, though you’re welcome to buy an LX 570 and pay Expedition Overland to build another (though Lexus says in the fine print that all these non-Genuine Lexus parts will likely void your warranty).
The Rebelle Rally bills itself as “the first women’s off-road navigation rally raid in the U.S.,” and the latest iteration of the 1,200-plus-mile 10-day event kicks off Thursday. For the occasion, Lexus set up 2019 Rebelle Rally winners Rachelle Croft and Taylor Pawley of the X Elles with a vehicle that puts most LX 570s to shame. Behold, the J201 Concept: a lifted, 550-horsepower, LX 570-based overlanding monster.
