Building on the success of the limited edition Al-Futtaim Motors 60th anniversary vehicles, and following the unprecedented success of the FJ Xtreme launched in 2014, Al-Futtaim Motors, exclusive distributor of Toyota in the UAE, announced the launch of two new Toyota cars, the 4.6-litre V8 Toyota Land Cruiser and the all-new 5.7-litre V8 Land Cruiser Xtreme, limited to just 60 production units in celebration of the occasion.
Describing the new additions to the 60th anniversary line-up, Jon Williams, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Motors, said: “We have seen tremendous response from customers over the 60th anniversary limited editions, which we initially offered in eight different vehicles, including the 4.0-litre Land Cruiser. The two new additions bring even more value to customers, and the extremely limited production of 60 vehicles for the Land Cruiser Xtreme is the crowning jewel of our 60th anniversary line-up."
The 4.6-litre V8 Land Cruiser comes with a host of new add-ons, limited to the 60th anniversary edition, including front bumper lip spoiler with day time running lights (DRLs), roof spoiler with chrome insert, chrome roof rails, rear bumper spoiler with dual chrome garnish, 9'' navigation screen with CD/DVD/AUX/USB/Bluetooth and rear seat entertainment in addition to rear view camera and blind spot detection for added safety and convenience.
The 5.7-litre Land Cruiser Xtreme stands head and shoulders above the crowd and is distinctly designed with performance in mind. It is now available with Door mirrors, side molding, back door trim, roof rails, 20" alloy wheels all black painted, in addition to fender flares, smoked led tail lights, FOX suspension, and a hood scoop to name just a few additions.
Last year, Al-Futtaim Motors launched FJ Cruiser Xtreme, a true personification of Waku Doki, Japanese for adrenaline rush, adding to the already fun-to-drive characteristics of the car.
The Xtreme badge earns its name by delivering an extreme off-road and desert driving experience, which eclipses the already legendary performance of both the FJ Cruiser and Land Cruiser.
Founded in 1955, Al-Futtaim Motors started the business with 28 Land Cruisers and Toyopets and has become today the leading automotive company in the UAE driven by the principles of engagement, transparency and integrity towards its customers and around 3,000 associates.
For six decades, Al-Futtaim Motors has established itself as a key driver for economic growth in the country as a large scale employer and provider of mobility solutions to individuals, private businesses and governmental and municipal organisations.
