Lexus LS600h L, Part 3

Why You Should Buy This Car:
Even though you're rich, stealth-wealth is your thing: you're not just another schmuck in an S-class.

What Luxury Ride Do You Lust After?

Wafting around Los Angeles for a week in the Cyber Barge (née Lexus LS600h L) was an eye opening experience.

LA Auto Show Blasting: Truth in Mastheads; Lexus LS600hL Headlights…

You know how we claim to loves cars just because of the curve of the hood? Well, now we love a car solely because of its headlights. Sure, the miserably named LS600hL is the world's most expensive hybrid, and it makes 430 hybrid horsepower and we'd like to be buried in the oh-so-luxurious backseat, but just look at… » 11/29/06 8:19pm 11/29/06 8:19pm
