Photos: 2007 Lexus LS 460 in action
In October, Lexus will release the fourth generation of its flagship LS sedan. We got an early look at this sleek, techy beast at a San Francisco preview event.

The ghost in the machine
When the car needs to correct its steering during APGS, servo motors turn the steering wheel. When the APGS LS is within the minimum distance to the car behind, the system stops, and the driver must manually move forward into position.
Because of the creeping capability of the APGS, the LS has a "hill-holder" mode that disables creep when the car is stopped on a hill. Thank goodness.
