The new 2016 Lexus GS F is coming soon to the market. First impressions are the key. The F badge is used since 2008. to marke the fastest and most aggressive cars in company’s lineup. This fact just adds to the overall breathtaking looks. The first thing that catch my eye is this grille, it looks like the car is about to blow fire. Lexus is known as a luxury car, that can be directly compared to models from Mercedes, amongst others.
Some models that people compare 2016 Lexus GS F with are BMW M3, which is a bit smaller than the GS F, BMW M5, a bit less powerful , Cadillac CTS-V that also comes out in 2016., considered to be the most powerful in this category and Mercedes-AMG E63 AMG, with more power than GS F and still looks like a proper luxury car. This car will definetly have some more competitors once it shows it’s mean face on the streets of USA and all around the world.
GS F weights 4,034 pound and has unique front and rear fenders and carbon spoiler, which are designed for air management and the underbody tray is considered to be unnecessary for the targeted performance. The A-pillar is a bit leaned forward, which gives 2016 Lexus GS F a mean new look. There will only be one trim level available, which is a four-door, rear-wheel-drive sedan and well equipped.
The seats of 2016 Lexus GS F are heavily polstered, with stitched leather lines and the color scheme has two tones. The dashboard contains lots of carbon fiber instead of the old wood trim and the steering wheel seems thicker. The F logo is in the headrest and according to the first photos, we except heating and cooling of the seats.
Engine and Performance
The 2016 Lexus GS F has 470bhp 5.0. litre V8-powered with 389 lb-ft of torque sent to rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission and provides great efficiency and handling, but still luxury. A unique feature is also the torque-vectoring differential, that is standard, but costs $1.750 extra, with driver-selectable standard, slalom and track settings. The car is easier to drive, because of the shorter wheelbase and the customised driving settings show the everlasting intention of connection the driver with the car and adjusting it to the needs of the target audience. The acceleration is 4.3 sec 0-60 mph, established by some preliminary testers, actually may varry. The EPA city/highway/combined fuel economics is 16/25/19 mpg. The CO2 emission is 1.02 lb/mile.
