2015 Lexus GS F

Category: Lexus | Author: | Date: October 6th, 2013

Lexus Fs up its GS sedan for the first time ever, a completely Lexus GS sedan in F-style gear. Lexus’s high-performance F sub-brand is similar in concept to BMW’s M or Mercedes-Benz’s AMG.

The GS F would get a completely worked-over chassis, and perhaps even some enhancements to the body structure to further stiffen things up. The stacked exhaust finishers are an F signature, and the rear diffuser element and rear lip spoiler are spicier than even those of the GS F Sport.

It owns eight-cylinder power, which could mean a V-8 will slide into the larger GS F.
The starting price approaching $70,000.
