Lexus Just Built Its First Hybrid Sports Car—And It’s Dramatic
When Lexus unveiled the LC 500 sports car earlier this year in Detroit, it was a welcome surprise. But now, the Japanese marque just dropped something even more shocking than even a nearly 470-horsepower sports car. This is the LC 500h, and it’s the first hybrid sports car Lexus has ever built. Color us interested.
What Lexus did tell us, is that the LC 500h, “Represents a shift in Lexus’ engineering process and design ideologies, and marks the beginning of a new phase for the Lexus brand.” Considering how dramatically unique both the LC and LC hybrid are, we welcome this change.
