2016 Lexus GS F

Lexus has unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show its latest F model – the GS F which will join the high-performance F lineup in 2016.

As announced ahead of the debut, the GS F is built on the GS 350 F SPORT platform and features a wide range of upgrades including engine and suspension.  The upgrades are so significant that Lexus says they “re-engineer” the car and turn the GS F into “an entirely new animal to the Lexus showroom”.

At the heart of the GS F is a 5.0-L V8 engine that generates 467 horsepower and peak torque of 389 lb.-ft. with a 7,300 rpm redline.  The powerful engine is paired with a “quick-acting” 8-speed AT with paddle shifters for manual-shifting capability.

Just like the GS 350 F SPORT, the GS F model offers 3 additional driving modes besides the normal mode –ECO, SPORT S and SPORT S+. ECO mode is for fuel economy, SPORT S fully exploits the capability of the powertrain and SPORT S+ takes a step further by setting up suspension, steering system, among other ready for racetrack.

According to Lexus, the custom stiff suspension that is equipped on the GS F “was honed on Japanese circuits such as Fuji Speedway and perfected on the famous Nürburgring Nordeschleife”.  The suspension is teamed with 19-inch wider forged wheels and an enhanced braking system depending on 15-inch front rotors with 6-piston calipers

The styling of the GS F provides enhanced aerodynamic and internal cooling.  The spindle grille adds extra aerodynamics to the car and at the same time enhances engine cooling.  Distinguishing the GS F from its standard GS counterpart is easy as the GS F is outfitted with carbon fiber accents, and equipped with carbon-fiber rear spoilers and trapezoidal tailpipes with quad exhaust tips.

“A jet fighter’s cockpit” is what Lexus describes its GS F’s interior. All controls are placed within the driver’s reach.  Front and rear seats have been upgraded to custom seats for better lateral support.

Compared to the standard GS 350, the Lexus GS F is heavier, longer, wider and lower than the GS 350.  Lexus GS F is 192.9 inches long, 72.8 inches wide and 56.8 inches tall, has a wheelbase of 112.2 inches, and weighs 4,034 lb.  (The standard GS 350 measures 190.7 inches long, 72.4 inches wide and 57.3 inches tall, and weighs 3,891 lbs).
