Default Lexus exec confirms plans for hybrid LF-A

The Lexus brand's first supercar the LF-A will be offered with a hybrid powertrain, according to Lexus U.K. director Steve Settle. "This car will not be an adaptation of anything that already exists it will be something entirely different," he said.


"It promises to set a fresh standard in the hybrid technology to which Lexus is totally committed and we are very excited about it," Settle told MotorTrader.


Rumors of a hybrid LF-A first surfaced in late August 2006, when Autocar reported a version of the car would be offered with the same hybrid system as the Lexus 600h sedan. The 5.0-liter V8 coupled with an electric motor will produce a total output of 435 horsepower, the magazine said. The regular LF-A is expected to be offered with a high-revving V10 producing over 500 horsepower.


Lexus revealed an updated LF-A concept in January, design to closely preview the production car, expected to arrive in late 2008 as a 2009 model.
