Lexus LS600h Shown in Detail – Video
The new Lexus LS600h is a thing of beauty, blending performance, eco-friendliness, and luxury into one machine.
In a way, photos can’t really show off everything the LS600h is all about, so the Japanese automaker has released a video spotlighting its flagship sedan model – in hybrid form. Powered by a 5.0-liter V8, the LS600h has a combined system output of 438 hp and can hit 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds.
It also achieves 19 mpg in the city and 23 mpg in the highway thanks to an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission (ECVT). Driving the wheels is a full time all-wheel drive system with a Torsen limited-slip differential.
