The Lexus GS F has been priced at ¥11,000,000 and is now on sale in Japan. The GS F is the first F series sedan model in the Lexus lineup since the IS F that was launched in 2007, with the sales ceasing in Japan in May 2014.
The front of the GS F gets the large spindle grille, triple-beam headlamps with L-shaped LED DRLs and large air intakes. The sides feature flared wheel arches, L-shaped side air outlets, 19-inch polished aluminium wheels, gloss-black side mirrors and ‘F’ badging on the front fenders. The rear receives a carbon-fibre spoiler and quad exhausts.
The interior features high-back sport seats at the front that are made with an integrated foaming technique providing occupants with comfort as well as support required during high-performance driving on the track. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather for comfort and grip. The upper portion of the instrument panel, centre console and door trim armrests are finished in Alcantara, adding a touch of luxury to the cabin. A colour heads-up display (HUD) is offered optionally and allows the driver to view necessary information without excessive eye movement. It can display speed, basic mapping and even engine rpms and shift position when in Sports mode.
The Lexus GS F comes equipped with Safety System + as standard. This package brings along several active safety systems with it such as Pre-collision System (PCS) with pedestrian detection function, Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Adaptive Hi-beam System (AHS) and Radar Cruise Control (with brake control).
The Lexus GS F sports a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine producing 467 hp and 389 lb.-ft. (527 Nm) of torque. The engine sends drive exclusively to the rear wheels, through an 8-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission with paddle shifters and manual mode. The high-performance variant is capable of hitting 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).
