Luxury, refinement, reliability have always been words synonymous with the Lexus brand. With Lexus’ new line of F-badged models the words luxury and performance now go hand in hand, and this is an excellent combination!
The F line of models illustrates Lexus’ new approach to the luxury performance segment, and is meant to rival the mid-level performance models from the likes of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. And the main advantage is that these cars will be less expensive than the comparable German models.
The brand-new Lexus GS F is the performance variant of the GS line. This means a 5.0-liter V8 engine, producing a substantial 467 horsepower and 389 lb-ft of torque. This means a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 168 mph. The V8 engine in the GS F is one of the last naturally aspirated engines available in a performance sedan on the market today. The roar of the GS F is helped by Lexus’s Active Sound Control system which amplifies engine sound through the front and rear speakers.
The starting price of the GS F is competitive at $84,440. Thanks to the bright color options available, this Lexus is sure to receive a lot of attention from fellow track goers.
