    Interesting to me that the same options are significantly cheaper on the hybrid vs the gas model...?

    Now I just need to convince my wife that buying an LC is more important than buying a house!! No worries right?!?! :)

    You could point out that in a pinch one can live in a car,but one can never drive a house.

    I think, for what it is, it could've been so much more expensive. I appreciate it being under 100k. Compared to the competition, it's priced lower than most, so good for Lexus!

    Now the only reason someone would buy an S-Class Coupe is because they are a super die-hard Benz fan

    While the price is fair, I could imagine that most LCs that will hit the showroom floors will be equipped with one of the option packages...

    Still no detailed reviews. I would like a thorough LC500 vs LC500h review, with acceleration times, handling tests, track times and fuel consumption. If the V8 had a transaxle, it could have been my favorite car GT, lack thereof makes it imperfect compared to Aston Martin or Maserati GranTurismo. I still think the LC500h is the better car, intended for its purpose (touring vs sporting). For "racing", I am sure the Supra will beat the LC500.

    I´m wondering if the LC 500h will be cheaper in Europe than the v8 :no_mouth:

    In some countries where new car taxes are based in part on emissions,and/or fuel consumption or "green" technology is given a fixed tax break the hybrid will be cheaper. I haven't seen prices for the v8 yet,but here in Norway the lc 500h will be around 20% less than the RC F.
