Push the Limits of Performance

Powerful Engine

GS F is the most powerful sports sedan we’ve ever built. Both assertive and sophisticated the 5.0-litre V8 delivers 467 hp. The responsive and naturally aspirated engine boasts formidable power. Enhance the track experience with steering wheel paddle shifters and Active Sound Control (ASC) - a computer-generated exhaust note that echoes through the cabin. May we suggest racing gloves?

Design

Strikingly Sophisticated Exterior

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

  • Ultra Sonic Blue Mica 2.0
  • MATADOR RED MICA
  • SMOKY GRANITE MICA

Premium Paint

Rich and radiant, GS F’s exterior finishes raise the art of paint with luxurious colours including Matador Red Mica, Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0, and Smoky Granite Mica. The mica colours use an extraordinarily complex multi-layered, twice-baked technique – a process pioneered by concept vehicles and custom cars. A scratch resistant clear coat finish protects and preserves your GS F. With Lexus it’s the art and science of colour.

Sport Interior

Exuding the look and feel of a jet fighter’s cockpit, the GS F cabin embodies high performance in every detail. Ambient interior lighting sets the scene, while high-back “F”-branded front sport seats, with perforated leather, give optimum holding performance, fitting the occupant’s body like an athlete’s body suit. Carbon fiber interior trim punctuates GS F’s aggressive intent. Aluminum pedals with anti-skid slits ensure solid contact between foot and pedal, ideal for high-spirited driving.

Driver and Passenger Comfort

Convenience abounds with intuitive climate control, heated seats and steering wheel. 8-way power adjustable seating for the front seat passenger and driver is standard. Behind the steering wheel, take advantage of lumbar support and seating configuration built with memory capability, so that you’re always perfectly placed in the driver’s seat.

Safety

Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management

GS F’s Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) predicts and helps prevent skids even before they occur, using a combination of individual-wheel braking, torque modulation and steering torque assistance. GS F’s VDIM features four modes, including Expert mode for drivers who want proactive slide control as they hone their skills. Also available is the vertical G sensor, detecting when your vehicle leaves the ground – and apply braking force when it lands.

Lexus Safety System+

LSS+ integrates a portfolio of active safety technologies to support your awareness and decision-making under a variety of traffic conditions and contingencies.

Blind Spot Monitor19 with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert32

Employing a quasi-millimeter wave radar installed on the back of the vehicle, GS F’s blind spot monitor (BSM) system can detect a vehicle present in adjacent lanes and can also detect an object at the rear of the vehicle while it is backing up. The BSM is coupled with a rear cross-traffic alert system that is designed to warn you of cars that are entering your path when backing out of a parking space.

8. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and if applicable Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) are electronic systems designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. They are not substitutes for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC and VDIM will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details.

9. Brake Assist
Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake-system maintenance and tire and road conditions.

10. Pre-Collision System
The Pre-Collision System is designed to help reduce the crash speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. It is not a collision-avoidance system and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, driver input and road conditions. Please see your Owner's Manual for further information.

11. Tire Pressure Monitor

12. Airbag Systems
All the airbag ("AB") systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All ABs (if installed) are designed to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions: frontal and knee ABs typically inflate in frontal collisions; side and side curtain ABs in side collisions; Roll-Sensing Curtain ABs at a severe tilt degree, roll or lateral G-force. In all other accidents, the ABs will not inflate. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating AB, always wear seatbelts. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. Please see your Owner's Manual for further information/warnings.

It is not a collision-avoidance system and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors. Please see your Owner's Manual for further information.

17. Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL)
Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) front seats can help reduce the extent of whiplash in certain types of rear end collisions.

Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions and cautions from your trailer-hitch manufacturer and vehicle Owner's Manual. The maximum amount you can tow depends on the total weight of any cargo, occupants and available equipment.

34. Automatic High Beam (AHB)
Automatic high beam feature can help improve vision at night. However, conditions such as a dirty windshield, rapidly changing light conditions or hilly terrain will limit effectiveness so the driver may need to manually adjust the highbeams from on to off.
