Actor-politician Pawan Kalyan becomes first Indian celebrity to buy the latest Toyota Land Cruiser LC300

Toyota launched the current generation Land Cruiser SUV in India at the Auto Expo this year. The SUV is currently the most expensive Toyota sold in India and it comes with a price tag of Rs 2.10 crore, ex-showroom. Just like Fortuner, Toyota Land Cruiser also has a huge fan base across the globe and their is a long waiting period on this SUV around the world. Many people took delivery of Land Cruiser and we have featured some of them on our website too. Indian actor, filmmaker and politician Pawan Kalyan from Telugu movie industry also bought the Land Cruiser LC300 and became the first celebrity to bring home the most expensive Toyota.

The video has been uploaded by Telugu Viral Videos on their YouTube channel. In this video, we can clearly see a convoy of Scorpio SUVs with a Toyota Land cruiser LC 300 in the centre. The SUV was recently bought by Pawan Kalyan and it looks like the video was recorded soon after taking the delivery. The actor-turned-politician like many people bought the SUV in white shade. We are not sure why most people buying this SUV are opting for this shade. The SUV is available in Precious White Pearl, Super White, Dark Red Mica Metallic, Attitude Black and Dark Blue Mica colour options.  The convoy can be seen passing through busy roads.

Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 is the flagship SUV from the manufacturer and the car comes with several premium features. The SUV offers all-LED headlamps, 12.3 inch touchscreen infotainment system, leather upholstery, 14 speaker JBL audio system and so on. Toyota Land Cruiser is based on GA-F platform which is based on TNGA. Land Cruiser is a capable off-roader and we have seen several videos of the same online. It is available with 4×4 as a standard feature. The weight distribution on the SUV has been improved and the suspension technology is also different. The Kinetic Dynamic Suspension system on the Land Cruiser also means the off-road capabilities of the SUV of the Land Cruiser have improved drastically.

Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 is available with both petrol and diesel engine options internationally. In India however, we only get the diesel version. The diesel version of the SUV is powered by a 3.3 litre V6 turbo diesel engine. The engine generates a maximum of 309 Ps and 700 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The petrol version of the SUV is powered by a 3.5 litre twin-turbocharged engine that generates 415 Ps and 650 Nm of peak torque.

Pawan Kalyan was in the news last year after he acquired a poll campaign vehicle named ‘Varahi’. The massive-looking truck, which was customized with modern amenities, came under a lot of criticism for its olive green colour option, which is usually reserved for military personnel. After facing criticism, the actor got the truck re-registered the truck in the shade of emerald green. The campaign vehicle was registered as a ‘camper van for private use’, much like the vanity vans of many other movie actors and actresses.
