The new Lexus is a car to rival the likes of BMW and Mercedes.

Lexus just revealed its latest model for 2016. The new Lexus GS F was unveiled today. No one expected Lexus to come up with the type of car the GS F is. The Lexus GS F is well on its way to becoming one of the most significant cars of its time. The new Lexus even has the potential to rival the BMW M5 and Mercedes E63 AMG. 

“As Lexus’ “F” brand vehicles continue to evolve and grow in number, it is important that these models offer differentiated and unique driving characteristics in their segments. The GS F is a very capable performance sedan that offers excitement behind the wheel in all facets of performance driving. It’s something that’s fun to drive no matter who is driving or where it’s being driven. The sedan embraces the virtues of sound, response and limitless power feel to support Lexus’ “F” brand identity of a performance car,” said Yukihiko Yaguchi, Emeritus Chief Engineer of the GS F.

The Lexus GS F comes with a spectacular 467 horsepower V8 engine. The latest Lexus vehicle is also the V8 super saloon with a living naturally aspiration. The Lexus GS F has retained the 5.0 liter unit which was previously found in the Lexus IS F and RC F. According to Lexus the GS F is a sports sedan. While the car has the functionality of a sports car it is more suited for everyday use rather than race sessions. 

“The GS F’s V8 delivers the high level of performance worthy of the “F” model. Painstaking tuning to the VVT-iE, the adoption of a high static compression ratio and the Atkinson cycle have resulted in fuel economy that is beyond the usual range of a large-capacity 5-liter engine, particularly during high-speed cruising. Furthermore, with control that includes idling speed in response to air conditioner load, the GS F boasts practical fuel economy comparable with vehicles equipped with idling stop systems during urban driving,” Yaguchi said.

The Lexus GS F also features an 8-speed Sport Direct Shift (SPDS) transmission in the V8 engine. Additionally a new Active Sound Control (ASC) has also been added. The ASC is responsible for synthesizing the original sound through acoustic designing. The Lexus GS F also features a double wishbone suspension and Brembo brakes. 

The unique look of the Lexus GS F is the most prominent characteristic and is a reason the car can make the BMW and Mercedes models make a run for their money. The new model has an aggressive yet powerful look. The distinctive look is due to the bold front fascia and low-slung wide stance. The carbon-fiber rear spoiler also add to the unique look.
