Luxury Autos: Beyond its eight-speed transmission; advanced navigational system with real-time traffic info; premium 19-speaker audio system and DVD player; Bluetooth technology; back-up camera; and numerous rear-seat amenities; this car can parallel park itself with minimal assistance from the driver with its advanced Parking Guidance System Package. Special sensors and the back-up camera make it possible. All the driver does is push a button to begin, and then, as the vehicle aligns to the curb, touch the brakes to complete the process.
The 2007 Lexus LS 460 and 460 L are the most powerful models released (at least until next year). It is the first luxury sedan series to offer an eight-speed, sequential-shift automatic transmission. The rear-wheel drive Lexus LS accelerates from zero to 60 mph in a very impressive 5.4 seconds with its 380 horsepower, 4.6-liter V8 engine. The vehicles' estimated fuel economy of 19 mpg for city driving and 27 mpg on highways also is quite noteworthy.
Since the arrival of the plush, luxurious Lexus LS series, these vehicles have racked up awards and accolades from the auto industry plus heaps of praise from its joyous core of owners. Each year the Lexus LS series draws from its predecessors established standards of excellence and makes improvements and upgrades. The elaborately detailed specifications of the LS 460 and the LS 460 L listed out could easily stretch past the bottom
of the page and well into the next with simple summarizations with minimal accompanying adjectives and adverbs. After all, it is a Lexus.
The base price of the 2007 LS variants is $61,000 to $71,000. Hybrid models, which may offer owners a tax deduction, also are available.
