Special 6x6 Toyota Land Cruiser developed


This may not be a Toyota-sanctioned development, but a 6x6 version of the brand's iconic Land Cruiser is bound to be a subject of dreams for many South Africans.

A few years ago the brutish six-wheel drive version of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class made plenty headlines, and subsequently more than 100 of the G63 AMG 6x6 beasts were built – some even made it all the way to South Africa…

But what about a six-wheel drive Toyota Land Cruiser? A joint project of NSV from Dubai and Multidrive Technology from Australia, the Land Cruiser 6x6 is powered by a supercharged 4.0-litre petrol V6 that delivers just shy of 300 kW and nearly 500 Nm of torque. It makes use of a five-speed manual transmission in standard form. However, a 4.5-litre V8 diesel and automatic transmission are options… tempting ones, too. You can even have it as a single or a double cab!
