2017 Lexus GS F @ Ken Shaw Lexus in Toronto

Bursting with firepower, Lexus GS F is instantly recognizable as an F model. An enlarged spindle grille with a distinctive mesh pattern and oversized air vents is flanked by LED headlamps and L-shaped LED running lights. In profile, GS F sits wide and low on 19-inch aluminum wheels. At the rear, stacked quad exhaust diffusers and a carbon fibre spoiler give enhanced cooling and aerodynamics, adding to GS F’s aggressive strength.

Exuding the look and feel of a jet fighter’s cockpit, the GS F cabin embodies high performance in every detail. High-back “F”-branded front sport seats give optimum holding performance, fitting the occupant’s body like an athlete’s body suit. High-grade, anti-glare, anti-slip Alcantara® trim adorns the doors, console and instrument panel. Aluminum pedals with anti-skid slits ensure solid contact between foot and pedal.

For total driver engagement during performance driving, Lexus GS F features an F model-exclusive, leather-wrapped heated steering wheel and shift knob. An “F” badge graces the bottom end, garnished along with the shift knob in blue-accented stitching. The wheel’s placement and grip shape ensure optimal handling, and at-your-fingers paddle shifters allow for quickly changing transmission ratios during circuit driving.

Rich and radiant, GS F’s exterior finishes raise the art of paint with luxurious colours including Matador Red Mica and Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0. The mica colours use an extraordinarily complex multi-layered, twice-baked technique – a process pioneered by concept vehicles and custom cars.

Under the hood of Lexus GS F is a responsive, naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 outputting a track-ready 467 hp and 389 lb.-ft. of torque – the most powerful V8 sports sedan ever developed by Lexus – delivering the highest fuel efficiency along with formidable power. GS F's engine note, enhanced by Active Sound Control, adds even more adrenaline-inducing emotion in the cabin space.

Lightning-quick and ultra performance-tweaked, a uniquely tuned Sports Direct Shift eight-speed automatic transmission sends drive to the rear wheels. SPDS offers fingertip control through steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and, when not in Manual mode, detects curves and holds the lower gear throughout to give optimal response when accelerating out.

Of all the standard equipment that makes GS F’s handling stand out, its innovative Torque Vectoring Differential headlines the list. Meticulously tuned on the world’s best race circuits for precise control of rear wheel torque, the TVD lets you experience incredible cornering with a choice of three operating modes: Standard for a balance of agility and stability; Slalom for emphasis on nimble steering response; and Track to achieve consistent hold during throttle.

Drive Mode Select lets you tailor your GS F’s performance to the moment, making adjustments to throttle control, air conditioning and steering response with a choice of four drive modes. Choose Eco Mode for optimized fuel efficiency, and the instrument illumination turns blue. Select Sport S or S+ Mode, the latter designed specifically for the track, and watch the instrument panel glow red as you embrace the full capability of a truly advanced drivetrain.

Whether you’re coasting the open highway, winding up snow-covered roads or devouring track at the circuit, Lexus GS F lets you embrace unfettered driving enjoyment. The GS F unibody is exclusively designed with a reinforced chassis for high rigidity, and suspension has been honed on some of the world’s most distinguished racetracks. GS F’s handling is smooth, precise and supremely versatile – equally adept at trimming your lap time and your homeward commute.

GS F’s Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) works to absorb vibrations on rough roads, reducing body roll during cornering and maintaining ideal composure during acceleration and hard braking. So you can flow uninterrupted from one manoeuvre to the next, enjoying more direct steering and a more comfortable ride.

Using technologies honed in the development of the LFA Supercar, GS F’s VDIM system predicts and helps prevent skids even before they occur, through a combination of individual-wheel braking, torque modulation and steering torque assistance. Capable of anticipating situations like traction loss, the system can then take proactive measures to maximize stability. GS F’s VDIM is available with “F” model-exclusive Sport Mode.

No matter how spirited your drive, arrive at your destination as refreshed as when you started. Driver and front passenger seats are specially engineered with upholstery-integrated foam to closely fit your form, firmly supporting your pelvis and spine. Heated and ventilated, with eight power adjustments, they can be programmed with Seat Memory allowing the desired seating position to be recalled as soon as the door opens.

GS F’s muscular strength demands an impressive amount of stopping power. Whether in everyday usage or powering through race circuits, GS F’s Brembo® disc brakes are designed for high loads with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear monoblock calipers. Slots in the discs help keep your brake pads clean and effective, while spiral fins help ensure excellent cooling.

Inside GS F is a high-tech sport cockpit to set your heart racing. GS F’s advanced instrumentation panel includes a large, centrally mounted TFT display tachometer that alters according to your selected drive mode, a Differential Torque Vectoring monitor, G-Force monitor and more. With Head-Up Display, GS F projects real-time information on the lower driver-side windshield – including speed, gear selection and turn-by-turn navigation.

Lexus GS F is a pulse-stirring experience not just for sport-loving drivers, but for discerning music lovers. The Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System powers out a 17-speaker symphony of immersive musical accompaniment beside, below and behind you, offering you superb fidelity for your soundtrack.

 

Lexus’s award-winning Remote Touch Interface lets you enjoy smooth, intuitive control over your GS F’s navigation, audio, smart phone and other connected devices. The touchpad at your side allows you to manipulate menus on the in-dash screen above – with one hand at the controls and the other never leaving the wheel – keeping you directly connected with maximum ease and minimal distraction.

GS F keeps you in optimal comfort thanks to Lexus’s first-in-class S-Flow Air Conditioning, an energy-saving technology that focuses airflow exclusively to the front when there are no rear passengers. In another Lexus first, 3-zone multi-layer air mix technology enables you to set upper and lower air mixes to different temperatures, giving you even more precise control over your comfort.

GS F features the advanced Lexus Safety System+, which coordinates some of our most innovative active safety technologies including the Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert with steering assist, Automatic High Beam, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Also included are two additional Active Safety features, Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), warning you of approaching vehicles when changing lanes or reversing.
