LONDON - May 22, 2007: Superman, Spiderman and the Hulk all boast special powers, but remain the stuff of comic book and movie screen fantasy. The new Land Cruiser Invincible, however, is a superhero vehicle that’s designed for the real world.

The new eight-seat Invincible is positioned at the pinnacle of the Land Cruiser range, benefiting from a higher specification than the established LC5 model, with dark-tinted rear privacy glass and a sophisticated entertainment system that includes a DVD player with twin headrest-mounted screens for movies or computer gaming on the move.

These top quality features are in addition to the Sequoia (stone) coloured leather upholstery, the full-map satellite navigation, dual-zone climate control and electrically adjustable heated front seats that form part of the LC5’s standard equipment list.

The special features add around an extra 2,500 value to the Invincible, but the price tag of 38,495 ($75,916 USD equivalent) is just 500 greater than that of the LC5 model. The new model goes on sale on 1 June.

If the Invincible’s on-road behaviour is as poised as “mild-mannered Clark Kent”, it can turn in an instant (no phone booth required) into a formidable off-roader, engineered and equipped to cope with the toughest conditions. Its armoury includes Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), Downhill Assist Control (DAC) and Toyota Electronic Modulated Suspension (TEMS).

The Land Cruiser Invincible is powered by Toyota’s Euro IV-compliant 173bhp 3.0-litre D-4D engine, with five-speed automatic transmission.
