If anyone is looking for a premium Toyota Land Cruiser rebuild, Icon 4×4 is where the GPS should point towards by default. Their builds are not just the best in fit and finish, flushed with bespoke components, made with exclusivity, but have functional underpinnings too. Their overland vehicles offer a unique mixture of classic styling with modern internals that provide current standards of performance. 99 4×4 special edition Icon FJ44 Toyota Land Cruisers have already found their loving homes in the hands of overland lovers, and to commemorate the company’s 100th build, Icon has created a special edition machine that is named after the recently-reopened Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
And as the company’s philosophy goes, its not just paint that makes a build special. This Icon FJ44 Toyota Land Cruiser Petersen Special that goes on display at the Museum for the next six months has gone through a mad engine swap, and now is powered by a massive GM Erod 6.2-Litre LS3 that in it’s default setting pumps out 430 bhp. But for more smile per hour, Icon decided to throw in a intercooled supercharged that has now got the total power output to a insane 550 bhp.
The customisation of this Icon FJ44 Toyota Land Cruiser does not end there. Almost all of the underpinnings of the car have been upgraded, right from the brakes which are now Brembo units custom made for Icon to the custom made suspensions, on to the wheels tyres and almost everything else.
