The hybrid sports car Lexus LC500h, now presented at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​in the special show "First Glance", will be a 3.5-liter V6 (300 hp and 348 nm) from the V8. A newly developed 10-speed automatic transmission is available for power transmission to the rear axle. In connection with the electric motor, it brings the so-called multi-stage hybrid system (MSHS) to a system power of 354 hp.

The new drive concept is intended to provide a series of dynamic advantages over previously known current-combiner combinations, such as an improved performance development. In addition, the electric racer is to sprint in less than five seconds from the stand to 100 km / h.

The engineers were able to achieve a reduction in the center of gravity of the vehicle thanks to the varied use of carbon and aluminum parts on the body. All measures result in a combined fuel consumption of 6.4 liters per 100 km, which is to be significantly lower than the fuel consumption in the conventional V8.
