Pros: Silent and smooth ride, incredible exhaust note under heavy load, strong acceleration, feels smaller to drive than it looks, incredible features, fit and finish is nearly perfect, materials are like fine furniture...did I mention this car is flat-out FAST!
Cons: No real dislikes so far. If you DON'T want to get noticed or draw attention to yourself, this car is definitely not for you. The Lexus LS600hL has a strong presence on the road. You WILL get noticed.
Overall review: This Lexus LS600hL has FAR exceeded my expectations for anything I could have ever imagined possible in a car. From the incredible ride quality, to the top-notch finishes and materials, this car is truly a masterpiece. Technologically speaking, I have never driven a vehicle that takes such a complex drivetrain and seamlessly integrates it into a driving experience like no other. This car is smooth, quiet, and luxurious. When you want to go fast, this car WILL GO FAST! The highway passing power is simply unbelievable! I guess when you combine a 389 HP gasoline engine (a version of the 5.0L that is used in the Lexus IS-F), and mate it to a 221 HP electric motor, that translates into flat-out speed. And the exhaust sound, while subdued, is simply awesome. The features and amenities are plentiful and useful. The styling is exotic. I could not be more pleased - and surprised - with the Lexus LS600hL. Congratulations to the Lexus engineers for doing a phenomenal job.
