Lexus to launch 200mph LF-A hybrid supercar

Lexus to launch 200mph LF-A hybrid supercar

While waiting at Heathrow airport yesterday, I picked up a copy of the U.K.'s Autocar magazine, which has a cover story on a hybrid version of Lexus's LF-A supercar. According the mag, the hybrid LF-A (a concept version of the petrol-powered supercar that was unveiled at the 2005 Detroit autoshow) will use the same dual-source power plant as that found in the LS 600h: a 5-liter V-8 accompanied by an electric motor producing 435 horses. Autoweek says that the hybrid LF-A will reach 60mph in less than 4 seconds, have a top speed of more than 200mph, and get fuel economy of 40mpg--although presumably these three statistics are mutually exclusive.
