Hy­brid? No thanks

Wheels (Australia) - - Firstdrive­s -

Yes, the LC500H is sporty, but the fact is, if you drive the 3.6-litre V6-hy­brid 500h back to back with the V8 ver­sion and still want the hy­brid, you’re a very con­fused hu­man be­ing. If you’re that wor­ried about petrol prices, how can you af­ford a car that will hover around $ 200,000?

And if Lexus thinks it can get away with charg­ing more for the more com­plex, less quick and com­par­a­tively aw­ful sound­ing hy­brid ver­sion, it has gone bonkers as well. Lexus Aus­tralia es­ti­mates it might make up one quar­ter of LC sales. I es­ti­mate they’ve got to be jok­ing.
