Lexus LX450d diesel launches in India, still off the cards for Australia

Availability of the diesel-powered Lexus LX450d has expanded to the Indian market this week, but, despite being offered in New Zealand, it remains off the cards for Australia. Powered by the same 200kW/650Nm 4.5-litre twin-turbo V8 diesel engine offered in the related Toyota Landcruiser 200 Series, the 2.5+ tonne LX450d is capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in a respectable 8.6 seconds, on its way to a top whack of 210km/h.
