Lexus has brought four eye-catching concepts to the Tokyo Auto Salon 2023, which opens today in Japan’s capital. The concepts use Lexus’ line of SUVs as a canvas, showing what the company’s ramping-up vehicles could look like with a range of aftermarket parts.

The RZ Sport concept is based on the Japanese brand’s first electric vehicle, due to arrive in the United States earlier this year, and brings with it an exaggerated body. Two carbon fiber wings protrude from the roof and trunk, while the aggressive front fascia features blue accents and massive air intakes carved out of the hood and fenders.

the RZ was also lowered 1.4 inches, with aeroblades directing airflow behind Volk Racing’s 21-inch black wheels shod with 295/35 rubber. The changes are more than superficial, with the rear electric motor being matched to the 201hp front engine, increasing combined power to 402 from the stock 308hp. Front and rear bucket seats complete the motorsport-inspired changes.

Lexus also unveiled three adventure-ready concepts. The RX Outdoor concept, built from the new RX 450h+, gets an aluminum skid plate, LED headlights in the front bumper, and an aluminum roof rack that supports a roof tent. Custom 18-inch black Rays wheels wrapped in 265/60 off-road tires are matched with black trim over the crossover’s expressive body.

Joining the RX Outdoor is the ROV Concept 2, an updated version of the side by side unveiled early last year. The ROV is mechanically unchanged and is still powered by an innovative 1.0-litre in-line three-cylinder powered compressed hydrogen gas, but now the buggy has been repainted and drives in the same brown ‘Regolith’ color as the RX concept on unique airless tires.

Finally, the GX Outdoor concept takes over GX 460 SUV and adds a roof rack that carries a tent, supply containers, and a rigid light bar. An electric Warn winch and LED lighting have been added to the front bumper, which also adds a skid plate. Rocker panel guards protect the beautiful green paint, and the GX rides on bespoke suspension from Australian firm Old Man Emu. Off-road oriented 275/65 Toyo tires round out the changes for this particular GX.
