What with all the attention on its long-wheelbase LS460L sibling, the shorter version of Lexus' new flagship sedan received, er, short shrift. But the betting man's money is on this version to be the zoomy one: minus some of the extravagant options detailed during the press conference like parking assist and a 19-speaker sound system, the short-wheelbase LS still gets the 380-hp V-8 and eight-speed automatic. Lexus promises 0-60 times of 5.5 seconds or less for the new car--and we're thinking this is the version they ran against the stopwatch.
