2016 Lexus GS F unveiled with 467 bhp
Worldcarfans







Lexus has officially unveiled the 2016 GS F.
Set to debut at the North American International Auto Show, the BMW M5 competitor has an aggressive front fascia with a prominent grille that is flanked by large air intakes and LED headlights. Moving further back, we can see ventilated front fenders, revised side skirts and a four-tailpipe exhaust system. The car also has tinted taillights, a trunk-mounted spoiler and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Power is provided by a naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops 467 bhp (348 kW / 473 PS) and 389 lb-ft (527 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission with manual-shifting capabilities.

On one hand, it's pathetic that the richest car company in tge world manages to bring these weak products compared to the competition. It might drive well, but common! HP in the 400s?? That's sad.

On the other hand if they price it to compete with Audis's SLine, Caddy VSport and the likes, they might have a real winner on their hands. And I like the interior, F seats are always lovely.

That backend shot really reminds me of the Model S.

I'm confused. Shouldn't this be the F Sport?

It looks awesome but 467 horsepower? That kind of waters down what F is supposed to be: a real competitor to RS, M, and AMG.

If it's like 75K though, then that's interesting. It'd be an S6 and XF Supercharged competitor.

Only thing good about this car is the interior and the engine, it may be down on power, but it's one of few NA engines still available in this size car.
The interior is not that nice. I sat in a regular fully loaded version at the autoshow this past weekend. I could not help but see parts from 1990's.

Really with more weight and less torque than the Vsport, it cannot possibly hope to touch the Vsport, let alone surpass it.
