The Lexus brand's first supercar — the LF-A — will be offered with a hybrid powertrain, according to Lexus U.K. director Steve Settle. "This car will not be an adaptation of anything that already exists – it will be something entirely different," he said.

"It promises to set a fresh standard in the hybrid technology to which Lexus is totally committed and we are very excited about it," Settle told MotorTrader.

Rumors of a hybrid LF-A first surfaced in late August 2006, when Autocar reported a version of the car would be offered with the same hybrid system as the Lexus 600h sedan. The 5.0-liter V8 coupled with an electric motor will produce a total output of 435 horsepower, the magazine said. The regular LF-A is expected to be offered with a high-revving V10 producing over 500 horsepower.

Lexus revealed an updated LF-A concept in January, design to closely preview the production car, expected to arrive in late 2008 as a 2009 model.

I agree, I could live without all the noise and still have something that will get up and go. With the good gas milage, its a good way to get out of paying the gas guzzler tax :)
