The 5.0-liter V8 engine produces a stunning total of 438 hp, from two electric motors of 221 hp. With a 5049 lb weight, which is considerable, the 600h L goes from 0 mph to 60 mph in 5.5 sec. The 600h L beats the 6.0-liter V12 of the BMW 760Li, but is topped by other supercars like the Aston Martin DB9 at 450 hp, the Bentley Continental GTC at 552 hp, the Ferrari 612 at 533 hp and the 599 GTB Fiorano at 612 hp.

The hybrid edition goes up to $105,000. Pretty expensive, but on the other hand, what are movie stars for? The car has standard Lexus looks, and that is a step ahead the Toyota Prius hybrid, which was the top choice in hybrid cars up to now. The LS 600h hybrid drive evolved from the system in the Lexus GS 450h, and that also had a predecessor : the RX 400h. So you can say Lexus has quite a history in this domain. Bearing this in mind, and considering also the improved Variable Valve Timing with intelligent electric (VVT-iE) system, and most of all the Advanced Pre-Collision System (APCS), which uses two forward-facing cameras and radar, you can bet all your money that the 600h L will be the supersedan of the year 2008, as they expect to sell more than 30,000…
