Toyota Lexus 450

For Sale






Lexy’s legendary inline straight-six 1FZ-FE engine is youthful at only 181,000 miles.  These Toyota engines are designed for 1 million miles so we’ve barely scratched the surface of their usable life.  It is common to see vehicles offered with 300,000 miles or more. 


We’ve upgraded the suspension to the Old Man Emu Nitrocharge which adds a 2.5” lift for extra clearance.  For entertainment, we’ve installed a Pioneer with Apple Play and new Pioneer speakers.  Brand new, laser-cut Weathertech mats line the front and rear passenger areas, protecting the originally, plush Lexus carpet.

TOYOTA LX450 - 1997


Featured in the Notorious BIG’s classic party hit Hypnotize (“in the Lexus LX four-and-a-half”) this iconic luxury SUV has been outfitted for the beach and mountain roads of Costa Rica. 


The vehicle came to Uturn in excellent condition.  We simply made it better – much better.  The vehicle started its life in California and then spent some time in Arizona.  It was with the same family since 2009, orthopedic surgeons who live between Seattle and Santa Barbara.  It came to us with no rust whatsoever, even the tailgate was in stellar condition.  Strikingly, the vehicle got great gas mileage, averaging 18 MPG during the 1000-mile journey from Seattle to Los Angeles.


Once we got Lexy in our shop, the project took shape.  There were some dings and scratches and the interior was moderately worn – nothing we can’t fix!  She underwent a meticulous frame-off restoration and is painted a custom color, AREA 51.  Brand new, large BF Goodrich All-Terrain K02 tires grip the Fuel Vector matte rims. 

The entire interior has been reupholstered in a comfortable, durable synthetic leather, making it easy to clean after sandy surf sessions or a day in the mountains and mud.
