Lexus unveiled their newest high-performance F car at the Detroit Auto Show, the mid-sized V8 powered GS F.
Based on the GS sedans, the new 2016 Lexus GS F gets the same fire-breathing 467 horsepower naturally aspirated 5.0 liter V8 found in the hot RC F coupe.
With a wild 7,300 rpm redline, the V8 comes with a quick-acting eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and a real console lever for manual-shifting.
The chassis is thoroughly massaged with manually adjustable dampers, a three-mode torque vectoring rear differential and larger brakes. And those huge 15” front rotors are available with bright orange 6-piston calipers.
While not as wildly muscled and gilled as the RC F Coupe, the GS F gets its share of unique body work including a unique face with deeper grille and slimmer LED headlamps.
Fenders have rear facing side vents which flow into unique rocker trims that flow back to a revised rear fascia with stacked quad tail-pipe outlets.
Wider 19” wheels fill the bulging openings tighter front and rear, giving the new GS F a look you won’t miss when it rolls by.
The interior gets all the good sport stuff including sportier leather chairs, carbon-fiber trim, and lots of sueded materials on all the touch points. Thankfully the infotainment puck still remains instead of their new touch pad.
The new Lexus GS F will arrive late this year with pricing to be announced closer to launch.
