A treat to look at and exhilarating to drive, the Lexus GS F has been described by Jeremy Clarkson as “the best Lexus I’ve driven since the LFA.” This V8-powered super-saloon delivers blistering pace, comes with a sumptuous interior and features plenty of useful technology.
The impressive-looking four-door GS F possesses smooth contours, a swooping roofline, and a range of eye-catching fixtures. The vehicle rides on 19-inch forged alloy wheels, each wrapped in Michelin tyres and fitted with orange Brembo brake callipers. A chic rear spoiler is included too, fashioned from carbon fibre. Labour-saving features include power-adjustable, folding, auto-dimming and heated door mirrors, complete with integrated LED puddle lights. Further LED illumination includes headlights, daytime running lights and rear combination lights
Each of the GS F’s five seats is upholstered in high-grain leather. Front-row travellers are treated to high-back, heated and ventilated sports seats that offer eight-way adjustability and electric lumbar support for the driver. The push of a button ignites the engine. Other features that require a minimum of effort to operate (or none at all) include electric windows, electronic climate control and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. The vehicle possesses a sizeable 520-litre luggage compartment too.
The GS F’s beating heart is a five-cylinder V8 petrol engine, which is paired with eight-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission. Producing 477bhp and 530Nm of torque, this enables the vehicle to go from 0-60mph in approximately 4.8 seconds. It can also achieve a top speed of 167mph (on private roads or race tracks, of course).
Audio entertainment is provided by a 12-speaker sound system (with a DVD/CD player, DAB radio and an FM/AM tuner). Bluetooth connectivity, USB and AUX inputs, a Lexus Premium navigation system, and a 12.3-inch display are also featured.
Driver aids include Blind-spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-traffic Alert, Lane-departure Alert and Lane-keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. A ten-airbag system, ISOFIX child-seat fixtures and seatbelt pre-tensioners and force-limiters are just some of many passive safety elements featured.
