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.

What an amazing set up. Hope it makes it's way to other Lexus products also.

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.
