Live from Paris 2008: Lexus LF-Xh Hybrid in matte-black

We’re huge fans of matte-black and feel that it’s now a popular enough color for manufacturers to offer it in the color palette. Lexus is showing this matte-black LF-Xh concept in Paris right now, and we have to say it looks a lot better than the one we saw at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show.

The LF-Xh concept is powered by a V6 gasoline engine and is matted to a high-output electric motor hybrid system. It also gives us a major hint at what the 2010 Lexus RX SUV will look like.

Throw this right up there with the LP640, Veyron, SLR McLaren 722, LP560-4, GT-R and the BRABUS Bullit Black Arrow.
