All-new Lexus GS F saloon revealed ahead of Detroit debut with 467bhp

Lexus GS F has been rumoured for a while and finally the Japanese automaker has revealed the new high-performance saloon ahead of its debut at next week’s Detroit Auto Show.

The GS F joins the RC F coupe which debuted a year ago in Detroit, using the same naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine that produces 467bhp and peak torque of 527Nm. The engine is linked to eight-speed automatic gearbox with a manual shift function.

The Torque Vectoring Differential, which debuted in the RC F, will be standard, operating in three different modes:
-Standard (default), for a balance of agility and firmness
-Slalom, emphasising nimble steering response and agility
-Track, delivering stability in high-speed circuit driving

Compared to the standard model the GS F monocoque chassis features structural reinforcements and an exclusive suspension package designed to optimise the car’s handling capabilities and ride quality.

Weighing 1,830kg, the GS F is reportedly the lightest model in its class.

No performance specs were released, but 467bhp is clearly not enough to take on the likes of BMW M5, Audi RS 6, Mercedes E 63 AMG or the new Cadillac CTS V that also debuts in Detroit with 640bhp.
