Thumbs up 450HP For GS450h !!!!???

This sounds GREAT

GS F will definitely have more than 500hp!

I don't want to jump for joy so I assume thats a typo and its supposed to say 350

If it really is 450hp...thats a huge deal!!!

They are actually summarizing the current GS lineup in Europe; GS300=250hp and GS450h=350hp

Sucks that the first thought upon seeing this is that you know it's a typo if its coming from Lexus.

Being wrong though would bring a huge smile.

If the GSh has 450hp, then what will the GSF have?

LOL

I will wait for the Official Lexus Press release within the next 3 days...

Remember European Magazines & Press already got seat time in the GS450 h prototypes...

We would have known by now if they felt 450 hp.

More than likely a typo and will carry the same current power output of 340 hp or a bump up to 350 hp..

I can't see the V6 motor with 306 hp plus electric motors, pushing out 450hp.

^That was my thought. Current GSh has 292hp V6 and 48hp from batteries. Even if the new V6 is bumped up a bit, 450hp is an extreme stretch.

Realistically, I think you'd have to have a ~375hp V6 and ~75hp in batteries to get 450hp, and I think both of those numbers are highly unlikely.

If Lexus can best the M35h in power and MPG, I will be content with that.
