I think it’s great to see that a Nollywood personality can make the list, all this is because she decided buy a 416-hp 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8, all-wheel drive, and a seven-speed automatic SUV with a rocket speed of 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds and all this comes with a price tag of

KCEE- LEXUS LX 570

It comes with a 5.7-liter V-8 383hp engine, a speed of 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds and a price tag of $96,905 (34885800.00 Nigerian Naira, 430500.46 Ghanaian Cedi, 1406295.05 South African Rand).What attracts people to the LX is its creamy ride quality (with adaptive suspension), the sublime 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system and the luxe interior. There’s also standard leather, premium sound (superseded in this LX by the Levinson option), a choice of four real-wood trims, heated and ventilated front seats, power-adjustable second-row seats, and power-folding third-row seats. Connectivity and infotainment have been upgraded periodically over the LX570’s extended life cycle. The ute now features a big (12.3-inch) center touch screen, navigation with voice command, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, and the Lexus Enform App Suite. Driver-assisting technology includes adaptive cruise control with automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, a 360-degree surround-view camera, a head-up display, and park assist. These are also available on the Land Cruiser though, which weighs 280 pounds less and is rated to tow 8100 pounds. Our test truck included a dual-screen DVD rear-seat entertainment system , always a good bet for family peacekeeping on long trips. One caveat applies:  than being flush-mounted, the DVD screens protrude from the front seatbacks, making it awkward to fold the center seats for maximum cargo capacity. The latest freshening gives the LX an interior that rivals the top players in the class. But the enhancements can’t entirely disguise that they’re largely just tacked-on features, struggling to keep this aged entry competitive in the full-size luxury-SUV derby with fresher contenders.
