Default LS460 will parallel park itself!

Does anyone have more news on the self-parking feature? My wife would be so glad to have this feature in her car...

http://carsguide.news.com.au/story/0...-21822,00.html

LS460 chief engineer Moritaka Yoshida said the new self-parking system was more accurate than the one used in the Prius, which used image recognition technology.

Yes, that's an Australian site & 180,000 is in Australian$.
Import cars in Australia are always way more expensive than it's here because of their much higher tariffs on cars.

There is a thread on people's opinions' about how much the LS might cost. The actual numbers probably won't come out until August 2006 a month before Lexus releases the new LS 460 in September 2006.

Default LS price

I read on Car and Driver that the base should start around $62,000.00. Now im sure thats a guess but is sounds about right. There is no way that the new car will start more than a few thousand above the current car. That would be SUICIDE!!!

Actually, LS460 is being moved upmarket so $62 K base and top end $72 K is very much the norm for that tier of pricing. I sure do miss the LS pricing in the $39K of the 90's though.
