The local release of Lexus' new GS F high performance V8 sedan has been
confirmed for February 2016.
Lexus GS F, based on the admired GS, is powered by a 351kW 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8 and features dynamic
handling developed on demanding race circuits, including the legendary Nürburgring in Germany.
Its elegant yet aggressive styling characterises the Lexus performance-oriented "F" brand, highlighted by an
aggressive-looking front fascia with functional air inlets and outlets, low-slung wide stance, large brake callipers,
carbon fibre rear spoiler and quad exhaust rear diffuser.
GS F offers enthusiasts the best of two worlds, delivering spirited performance on challenging switchbacks while being
able to reach destinations in unprecedented style and comfort.
It seats five comfortably in a luxuriously-appointed cabin filled with high-tech amenities and advanced safety
technologies, including the new Lexus Safety System+.
Yukihiko Yaguchi, emeritus chief engineer of GS F, said the new sedan delivered an exceptional dynamic experience but
also accessible performance for all driver levels - a key trait of the F division line of vehicles.
"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," Mr Yaguchi said.
"The GS F is a very capable performance sedan that offers excitement behind the wheel in all facets of performance
driving. It's a car 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
Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said GS F represented an ideal addition to the brand's expanding line-up
of F models.
"GS F will be the second F model to launch in 12 months, which firmly indicates Lexus' intention to broaden its
high performance vehicle portfolio," Mr Hanley said.
"This dynamic vehicle delivers accessible performance for all drivers, an unforgettable sound from its naturally
aspirated V8 engine and a range of luxury and convenience features typical of a premium Lexus sedan."
Pricing and final specification details will be announced at the time of launch.
