The World’s Fastest SUV Unveiled by Toyota

Toyota land speed cruiser

Toyota just unveiled the fastest SUV ever built at the SEMA (Speciality Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas. The new Land Cruiser has been named as “Land Speed Cruiser”. The SUV has achieved a world record of being the fastest SUV. The engine is a twin turbo 5.7 litre V8 that produces 2000hp, which is 500hp more than Bugatti’s Chiron. Its estimated top speed is 354km/h.

Toyota had to modify it to make sure that it could handle the extreme load of the components in the engine. SUVs are not aerodynamic and have a great ride height, which is not ideal for achieving top speeds. In order to overcome the issue of aerodynamic, Toyota had to lower the suspension, and smoothen the lower area to make it more aerodynamic. The lowered suspension makes the air pass under the vehicle, creating less turbulence at high speeds, less drag and more stability at super speeds.

    pointless to have such a vehicle in production. Cud be a one-off showpiece

    You have to be enthusiasts to know the point

    In the 2nd video at the 17th second and 51st second, he says between 2500 to 3000 hp. In the article it says 2000 hp. Which should we believe?

    This wasnt a criticism towards the enthusiasts who want it bad. just my speculation that a vehicle like this would never make it to a production model. I am personally all in for bentayga, cayenne and x5M

    2000hp probably pushes the limits of that block, I highly doubt 3000hp is possible from 5.7L.
