Lexus Reveals GS F High Performance Sedan Ahead Of Detroit Motor Show


Time to sucker punch the BMW M5.

It seems quite clear that Lexus has finally found its mojo. The latest piece of evidence is this: the 2016 GS F, not to be confused with the GS 350 F Sport. No, this time we’re talking about the real deal, the true BMW M5 fighter. Power comes from a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 (the same engine found in the RC F) which produces a total of 467 hp and 389 lb-ft of torque (the BMW M5 comes standard with 560 hp). The sole gearbox is a lightning quick eight-speed automatic with manual-shifting capabilities. Rear-wheel-drive, of course, is standard fare.

Complete details and additional photos are expected next week when the GS F will make its world debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, but Lexus has provided a few tidbits for now. The GS F comes standard with 19-inch alloys and the brand’s Torque Vectoring Differential that’s also found in the RC F. This system features three operating modes: Standard, Slalom, and Track. The unibody structural reinforcements and suspension have been exclusively designed for the GS F in order to optimize its handling without harming overall ride quality. Total weight is about 4,035 pounds, about 254 pounds less than the M5. Pricing and an on sale date should be announced from the Motor City as well.
