Lexus has unveiled the all-new GS F at the North American International
Auto Show in Detroit, which combines the opulence of a leading luxury
cruiser with the performance of a world class sports car.The GS F is the
latest vehicle to join the ranks of Lexus' high performance F line, which
already includes the exhilarating RC F.
Based on the mid-size GS luxury sedan, the GS F breaks new ground
for Lexus as the largest vehicle ever offered with an "F" badge. Not to be
confused with the GS F Sport, the GS F will have a range of sporting
enhancements throughout, including to its engine.
The GS F will feature structural reinforcements and an exclusively designed suspension system to match the vehicle's added power. It boasts remarkable sports car-like handling, which was honed not only in circuit in Japan but also perfected on the famous Nürburgring race track in Germany. The GS F delivers remarkable high-speed stability and the agility of a nimble sports car.
The GS F features an enlarged and more pronounced version of Lexus' trademark spindle grille, with a distinctive mesh pattern reserved for F models, along with large gaping air vents that have been flawlessly integrated into the front. It sits noticeably lower and wider than other GS models, resulting in an aggressive stance that, along with its front fender air outlets and sporty 19-inch alloy wheels, make it instantly recognisable as an F. Slim headlights with the signature Lexus L-shaped daytime running lamps add to the vehicle's elegant yet sporty face. The rear is highlighted by a subtle carbon-fibre rear spoiler and trapezoidal tailpipes, with four chrome exhaust tips, that powerfully suggest this vehicle is meant to be driven hard.
Inside the GS F, the cabin has been spiced up to exude the look and feel of the cockpit of a fighter jet. The interior is styled in an elegant form-follows-function theme, with all controls placed within easy reach of the driver. A new electronic instrument cluster features, which can be configured between four different displays, depending on your preferred driving style: Normal, Eco, Sport S and Sport S+. Meanwhile, custom front and rear seats have been implemented to provide the vehicle's occupants with more lateral support while not sacrificing comfort. Despite all the sporty touches, the GS F retains a luxurious feel, and is comprehensively equipped with a range of indulgent and technologically advanced features, which is exactly what you would expect from a Lexus vehicle.
