When rumors began swirling that Lexus was preparing a crazy go-fast F version of the GS that would inspire the same level of petrol-headed lunacy as the RC F, it obviously created a storm of excitement.
It’s been a while since I’ve heard or seen any new information about the Lexus GS. The car has a new chassis, a new grill, and a new F-Sport. In fact, the only thing it’s missing is an F.
When I was originally introduced to Lexus’ now signature spindle grille, I wondered who on the executive design team came up with the idea and (honestly) what possessed them to do so. Autocar has finally found an answer.
Yep. This is a real thing that exists. It’s the closest thing to driving the kind of car a 5-year old would draw if you asked him. Welcome to Memphis.
“Man, I could totally get used to this!” That was, after riding shotgun for approximately a block and half, my buddy’s first observation about the 2013 GS 350 F Sport. And after spending a week and close to 1000 miles behind the wheel, I can attest that getting used to the redesigned GS is far from difficult.
