World's 'top car' here in June

May 1, 2007, 9am. Judged World Car of the Year for 2007 by jurors from 28 countries, the 280kW V8-powered Lexus LS460 is due in New Zealand next month (June), along with a long-wheelbase hybrid derivative, the LS600hL.

Lexus says the 600 is the world’s first V8 hybrid. Both cars use an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Notes Lexus’s New Zealand manager Matthew Morrison: “it’s not often you launch a luxury flagship, let alone two.”
