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.

Lexus designed the interior to be comfortable and familiar to existing Lexus customers. There is increased use of soundproofing materials, and the body structure is designed to counter vibrations and cancel noise. All the wood in each car comes from a single tree, the better to match grain patterns in all pieces, and Lexus paid obsessive attention to the door-closing sound. Instruments are Optitron LED backlit for optimum visibility. A wood-and-leather steering wheel comes standard.
