467Hp All-New 2016 Lexus Gs F

Recommended Posts

I'm anxious to see what the reaction is from the Lexus customers.

I would probably like to have this car for about a week, or maybe for a couple of specific road trips. Otherwise, what do you do with 467 hp? More than one automotive journalist has referred to the BMW M-series as "high-strung," a term I have used with some cars myself. No doubt, in true Lexus fashion, some of the "high-strung" quality will have been refined out of the GS-F. But I'm not sure where I'd use that capability most of the time, given that my GS provides more performance than I generally need to call on.

My guess is that we are talking about a handful of cars to pin the F's performance chops among our more serious enthusiasts, and to maybe allow some track showings that help establish Lexus as a member of the high-performance auto club. Most folks will say "wow," head for the dealership, and drive home in the current choices.

Can't say I like the busy rear-end treatment with the four exhausts, and that blue is deal killer for me, but I presume there will be other colors.

But, give me an hour with the car at Road Atlanta, and I'm your man! Lexus mgmt, do you want my cell phone number?

Probably the end of the line for these normally aspirated 5.0L V8's is my guess (what I mean is these GS's and RC's will be the last gen of Lexus cars with this particular engine), to be enjoyed while we can....
