ASSOCIATE WEST COAST BLAKE Z. RONG: I drove all of the 2013 Lexus LS 600h L to Calif. and San Francisco from Los and boy, let me tell you: California finally reigns in its problems — of which I am through copious parking — and finally builds the railway system it deserves and never utilize, there’s no way to wind up and down the Central than in this.

A private jet, perhaps. Or a rickshaw.

The LS 600h’s biggest is its utter quietness: at 80 mph the loudest are the crosswinds that cause tractor-trailers to leer viciously in windshield. Remember that Rolls-Royce claim that the sound at 65 mph is the ticking of the clock? The beats that — for its center-mounted analog clock is so it doesn’t even tick. windows, electric-motor boost, and a or so engine covers under the hood contribute to the ability to to your inner monologue. If you had a you could work on your American Novel as you barrel the fields surrounding I-5 (but will say that it cribs from Steinbeck and its characters to be more fleshed out).

I to San Francisco for a burrito. And when I myself for the six-hour marathon to Los Angeles, I wished that it drive itself so I could sit in the back. The Executive-Class Seating ($7,555) features the following: a ottoman, a reclining seatback, a lower cushion, the ability to the front seat into the at a frightening angle, heat and two-way power lumbar three different electric a Blu-Ray player with headphones, a fold-up tray made of finer wood the side of any 1948 Ford butter-soft leather gently from the most Olay-bathed of the subtle yet glaring feeling growing up with anything than an Imperial Crown with the Mobile Director transforms the LS 600h driver a modern-day Horatio Alger, and a massager with six-way

Being the gentlemanly cad I am, I drove my around Los Angeles while she out the massaging seat. She loved it. you think it’s funny we’re in this thing and surrounded by, like, Toyota she asked.

“We don’t care about the people ,” I snarled.

Indeed, in the LS you don’t have to. The small disappear rearwards with a of the throttle, wired as it is to a 5.0-liter V8 and an motor that produces a of 438 horsepower and quiet forward to whisk Executive-Class executives traffic jams. Silent, and imposing, like the alien ship from “District 9.”

are many reasons why one might not for the full LS 600h monty, because it’s a near-$40,000 over the LS 460 F-Sport and gets 1 mpg better. (The next-largest — not a hybrid — is the at a “paltry” 360 horsepower, 78 horsepower You don’t buy this for the feel-good friendliness; only the small in Toyota Priuses care that. No, the hybrid system is precisely to reflect why two powerplants are so in the first place: you go faster! How hustling a two-and-a-half-ton Japanese tea to 60 miles per hour at around the time (5.5-5.6 seconds) as a Boxster manual sound? as thrilling an activity as the steeplechase, racing, space tourism or Sir Richard Branson is doing at exact moment.
