Lexus U.K. director, Steve Settle, has confirmed that LF-A (Lexus' first supercar) is set to go hybrid. In an interview with MotorTrader, he was quoted:

This car will not be an adaptation of anything that already exists – it will be something entirely different.

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