Toyota has unveiled a special edition version of the Land Cruiser J300 SUV in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Called the Land Cruiser 10th Victory Edition, it pays homage to Toyota's ten consecutive victories in the production car category at the Dakar Rally. The company also secured overall title wins in the 2019, 2022, and 2023 editions of the Dakar Rally, with the specially designed Hilux pickup.

Based on the Land Cruiser 300 Black Edition sold in the UAE, the 10th Victory Edition features blacked-out exterior elements, including a grille, mud flaps, a skid plate, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The special edition gets unique black and grey decals decorating the sides and rear bumper. Inside, however, the special edition model remains the same. It has a dual-tone black and beige cabin with a 9.0-inch infotainment system. Other interior bits include a leather steering wheel, fabric upholstery, and tri-zone climate control.
