Lexus corporate & Hennessy Lexus of Gwinnett (big thanks to Hugh Robb, Frank Mullin & Joe Gaunt) have come through BIG TIME.....
The week has been amazingly hectic yet beautiful....tomorrow's meet is going to be amazing and I knew I wouldn't get that "alone" time with the GS & LFA so we rushed tonight and Hennessy stayed late for us to arrive...thank you.
I was skeptical but I can only imagine how this new GS will look lowered with some 20" Vossen Concave wheels.
. The front end is so much better in person, so aggresive, I love it. The interior is really 4-5 steps up over mine.
It was posted here that Lexus is actually aiming for some LS buyers with this GS and it shows. The interior is truly world class.
I am 6" 5 and the interior is far roomier, the leg room up front is amazing. The 18 way seats are amazing. The materials used are top rate. The 18 cubic foot trunk is out of this world, I could not even reach the back with my hand.
The wood is superb and I noticed the seatbelts are black contrasting against the beautiful saddle leather. Oh, yes its saddle and beautiful. The LED lighting is brighter inside and the welcome LEDs along the doors are awesome.
It is not the most daring vehicle from the side or rear but it speaks class and like every GS, will age very well. It is much more upright and more like a mini LS.
Overall my wife loved it and I was quite smitten, was expecting to be disappointed but came away seeing the vast potential for this vehicle. Oh and I opened the engine bay and there is TONS of room for a V-8 (cough cough Lexus, cough cough)
Funny but I've been in a GS for 11 years now...she is a familiar friend & I am happy I was fortunate enough to get to be with the new generation one on one. I am sure the people tomorrow will love it.
