The "600" weighs in at about 5,000 lbs; features a very comfortable, isolated interior; and 438 HP (V-8 plus electric). It will do 0 – 60 MPH in 5.5 secs and, thanks to being a hybrid, it is rated at 20 mpg city and 22 mpg highway. All this, starting at only $104,000. That price by the way, is enough to buy four Toyota Priuses.
While this car may appeal to many, it doesn't appeal to me. It isn't that is not a very good car, it is just not appropriate for pulling up at my local sushi bar, or my used book store, or the ice cream shop I frequent. It just wouldn't be appreciated and I would fear I would be asked the question, "Whaddaya drivin' these days? A Buick?"
