Lexus GS 450h hybrid review: Is this the fastest hybrid in the world?


Really when you think about it you can use an electric motor in a car to make it more fuel efficient, or you can use the extra power to make it faster.

Lexus chose faster over fuel efficient when it built the 340 HP GS 450h hybrid.

0-60 in under six seconds in a car that's as quiet as a church mouse when putting around town.

So does adding some bad boy acceleration cred make the tailored Lexus too cool for school or just a boy racers wannabe.
