Hitting a top speed of 168 mph, this new four-door ‘F’ Perfomance sports saloon has been put through its paces at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb in Colorado, while the high-speed performance and handling characteristics have been perfected at the Nürburgring (Germany) 24-hour race. Built at the Motomachi plant by the Lexus Takumi master craftsmen, the model comprises normal aspiration, immediate response and a dramatic sounding engine – with no lag. A choice of driving modes allows you to switch between SPORT S and SPORT S+ mode, engaging Active Sound Control. Emphasising a deep exhaust sound and a sporty driving experience, GS F performance has been fine-tuned with the use of Drive Mode Select. Should you require an eco friendly drive, ECO mode helps to reduce emission and conserve fuel, while NORMAL drive mode perfectly blends a combination of power, economy and comfort.
Delivering a staggering 467 bhp (maximum) and maximum torque of 527Nm, the new GS F is fitted with a naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine beneath the bonnet. Higher revs, a higher-pitched roar, enhanced responsiveness and advanced sound engineering – this benchmark in Lexus innovations paves the way for future additions to the F Performance line up.
To increase power and efficiency, a combination of Otto and Atkinson combustion cycles are also a permanent fixture within the new ‘F’ release. Besides this impressive raw power, the Innovative Torque Vectoring Differential makes sure that your Lexus delivers the optimum level of handling, greater traction and more vehicle control, at all times.
Aggressively styled, with an imposing stance - the fierce GS F’s appearance is only accentuated by the long curving bonnet and striking grille. Boasting highly rigid framework that offers outstanding levels of handling - cornering stability is assured thanks to a multi-link rear suspension setup.
The GS F has been refined to perfection, featuring a daring, gleaming paintwork finish, premium touches and everything you might expect from a first-class member of the ‘F’ line-up. Offering the speed and agility of a premium sports car, with the looks to match, it’s safe to say that the GS F is a force to be reckoned with on the roads (and wouldn’t look lost on the race track).
A sporty interior to match the refined exterior - inside the GS F, the all-new high-back sport seats feature Lexus ‘integrated foaming’ - designed to support driver posture.
Inspired by motorsport interiors, this foaming aids greater comfort and lateral support than conventional upholstery. Alongside this, a sports steering wheel offers thick grip for greater control, while placement of steering wheel paddle shifts have been optimised for fast, accurate gear changes.
Inside the driver-focused cockpit, the GS F features a 12-speaker Mark Levinson® audio system and Lexus Safety System+ (as standard) – making sure that you stay connected and entertained at all times throughout your drive.
From Adaptive Cruise Control to Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Keeping Assist and Pre-Crash Safety, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Traffic Sign Recognition – the forward thinking Lexus GS F has been engineered with safety and connectivity in mind, fitted with ten airbags as a further safety precaution.
