The Top Gear car review:Lexus LS
For:When was the last time you saw one of these on the road?
Against:Expensive, should really be more economical
What is it?
Five-litre V8, four-wheel-drive, 155mph, huge. Easy target. Hang on, though, it’s a hybrid. With an electric motor. Both black AND white? How to baffle the Daily Mail.
The LS, which hasn’t been facelifted for a while, is available in just the two specs. The cheapest non-hybrid short-wheelbase 460 weighs in at £72k, and the long-wheelbase 600h tops £100k. Ouch.
