2016 Lexus Gs f Review
The Lexus GS F performance sedan – based on the popular GS – is armed with a potent 467 horsepower (477 PS / 351 kW), 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 and excellent handling developed on the most demanding race circuits, including the legendary Nürburgring.Its elegant-yet-aggressive styling effectively characterizes the essence of Lexus’ performance-oriented “F” brand, highlighted by bold front fascia with race-inspired functional air inlets, triple-beam headlamps, low-slung wide stance, large brake calipers, carbon-fiber rear spoiler and quad exhaust rear diffuser

While it’s more than capable of taking on a twisty mountain road, the Lexus GS F is still a sedan that’s ideal for everyday use

It seats five comfortably in a luxuriously appointed cabin filled with high-tech amenities and advanced safety technologies, including standard Lexus Safety System +.The Lexus GS F offers enthusiasts the best of all worlds: it’s a car that will provide thrills and excitement on challenging switchbacks, all the while offering occupants unprecedented style and comfort.”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 Lexus 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.POWERTRAINThe heart of the exciting new Lexus GS F is undoubtedly its naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8, which has been finely tuned to deliver excellent power and responsiveness

The engine’s reciprocating assembly targets lower mass with the help of lightweight forged connecting rods and titanium intake and exhaust valves, allowing it to reach a 7,300-rpm redline

Free-breathing 32-valve cylinder heads take full advantage of this engine’s reduced internal friction, and aggressive valvetrain

The working angle and lift of the camshaft have been designed to achieve ample torque production for continuous acceleration throughout the rev range

Add to the mix optimized intake and exhaust manifolds, and the seamless operation of a high-performance-tuned Variable Valve Timing (VVT-iE) that delivers optimal power in all situations, and the result is an engine that delivers 467 horsepower (477 PS / 351 kW) at 7.100 rpm and 530 Nm (389 lb.-ft.) of torque at 4.800-5.600 rpm, allowing for accelaration times of 0-60 mph in 4.5s and 0-100 km/h in 4.6s.
