Toyota’s luxury car arm, Lexus, has often been recognized for offering world-class tech, luxury and aesthetics.

Check out these 5 modified Toyota Fortuner SUVs that badly want to be a Lexus.
Though this version of Fortuner does not wholly replicate any of the Lexus SUVs, it partially draws inspirations from them as its front façade features the badass Spindle grille.
