Lexus Debuts 2016 GS F To Europe Here In Geneva

Reveal

Coming to Europe with a clear mission.

If there ever was a high-performance sedan from Lexus that could pose a serious challenge to the BMW M5, the 2016 GS F is it. Making its European debut here in Geneva (after bowing in Detroit), the GS F certainly has the styling and attitude to go head-to-head with the best Germany has to offer, but what about under the hood? Lexus claims it’s got this department covered with a naturally-aspirated (hint BMW and Mercedes, no turbos) 5.0-liter V8 capable of producing up to 467 hp and 389 lb-ft of torque.

The only gearbox that’ll be on offer is an eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters. Speaking with Lexus sources on the showroom floor, they’re confident enthusiasts will be won over by the GS F for a number of reasons. Aside from the choice of engine, Lexus engineers tuned the sedan’s suspension at both Fuji Speedway and the famed Nurburgring. Combined with a torque vectoring differential and two electro-mechanical clutch packs, it’s safe to say the new GS F is ready for a fight.
