Meet the toughest Toyota Land Cruiser 200 Series yet: Icon given a truly menacing makeover

Russia's SCL Global has unveiled a menacing makeover for the LandCruiser 200 Series.

Tired of waiting for Toyota to confirm a Final Edition for the 200 Series LandCruiser? Let this menacing makeover from SCL Global whet your appetite for what's possible.

The Russian aftermarket outfitters call this makeover Hakama, and it certainly pumps up the tough factor for Toyota's ageing icon.

The kit includes a new and sharply creased bonnet, a new grille, new bumpers front and rear, side skirts, wheel arch extensions and boot spoilers.

They're not bolt on bits, either. These are entirely new panels, constructed from fibreglass, that the modifiers promise will resist temps of up to 120 degrees Celsius.

While the kit sadly isn't available in Australia, what appears to be a new, and official, Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series has been spied on a transport dock in Japan, with what is thought to be a new "Final Edition" snapped ahead of the 300 Series launch.

The images, reportedly captured on one of Japan's car transportation docks, show what seems to be a facelifted 200 Series, but it's not immediately clear if it's a special edition exclusive to the Middle East, or the rumoured Final Edition that will see off the current generation.

The grille has changed significantly, with the three horizontal slats making way to a twin centre slat and a blacked-out background finished in what appears to be a black mesh, bookended by two new fog lights.

That black mesh now continues below the grilles, with the lower half of the front-end now looking significantly different to its predecessor, too, and there appears to be bigger alloys and a different finish on the headlights.
