It's very, very naughty.
Many future owners of the new 2016 Lexus GS F will soon become acquainted with their local law enforcement agencies. Speeding tickets are bound to happen. Lots of them. Revealed online last week, Lexus has now taken the sheets off its new BMW M5 fighter and it looks absolutely ferocious. Power, as we already knew, comes from a naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8 with 467 hp and peak torque of 389 lb-ft. The sole gearbox is an eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters.
There are also four driver-selectable operating modes: Normal, Eco, Sport S and (for the track), Sport +. Lexus claims the GS F’s suspension was honed at both the Fuji Speedway as well as the Nurburgring. At the rear of the car is a torque vectoring differential with two electro-mechanical clutch packs.
According to Lexus, the GS F also carries over 300 pounds less mass than key German sedan competitors. Sadly, Lexus still hasn’t revealed official performance specs. That’ll hopefully soon change. Also note that the GS F sits lower and wider than the base GS sedan, and with a more pronounced spindle grille with large air vents integrated into the front bumper. It rides on 19-inch alloy wheels. At the rear is a carbon fiber spoiler and chrome-finished exhaust tailpipes. The interior is decked out with high-grade Alcantara trim and leather upholstery. There’s even an analog clock for an added touch of elegance. Pricing details and an official on-sale date have to be announced.
