Lexus to soon offer GS-F mid-size luxury sports sedan

Article by Christian A., on December 3, 2010

As the Lexus IS F has been introduced to the US market, consumers can expect that the GS mid-size luxury sports sedan/executive car will be offered with a high-performance trim level, completing its "F" line. Lexus is seeking to offer Americans an alternative for the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG.

Reports say that Lexus will be presenting a sportier version of the GS that will stand out from the rest of the range due to its more aggressive look and the fact that it will be feature a 5.0-liter V8 identical to what’s seen on the IS F. However, the GS will have a higher power output of 465hp.

The power boost is required to propel the heavier body of the GS, which has had its weight reduced to about 3,700 lbs (1678 kg).

As a result, the GS F is capable of accelerating from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint in under 4.5 seconds. It’s likely that the GS F will arrive in 2012 and will be priced from $90,000 to $100,000.

However, Lexus has yet to release an official statement about the car. It’s possible that the same treatment will be given to the Lexus CT 200h, whose "F Sport" trim level won’t have modifications as it is a hybrid.

Moreover, it will feature extreme changes to the chassis and body. The vehicle will receive stiffer springs to improve the handling of the vehicle. It will also get shocks and upgraded brakes. [via roadandtrack]
