The GS450h and the new RX450h have a made up ability to do this. In drive it uses the CVT mindset and sets RPM to necessary output. But when you move it over to the user shifting mode with "+" and "-", it has predetermined gear ratios that do not actually exist. It just tells the CVT to go this ratio and stay there until it gets a "gear change" prompt from the user. But, the car is faster in the "D" or CVT mode. The only thing I have found the fake gears to be useful for is engine braking. And the 06-08 have a similar feature in "B" mode.
