The big performance sedan is expected to be powered by the same 5.0 litre V8 found in the new Lexus RC F. Reports also suggest output will be dialled up to greater than 400kW.
Those sorts of figures will go a long way toward battling the GS F’s obvious rivals, which offer as much as 430kW.
Expect the Lexus GS F’s V8, co-developed with Yamaha, to be paired with an eight-speed auto and paddle shifters. A new Torsen differential, performance suspension, bigger brakes and improved handling should also be on-board.
The GS F will likely also benefit from a weight-loss program, several carbon fibre bits replacing standard panels.
An aggressive body kit, bigger air intakes and dark lightweight alloys matched to new front and rear diffusers will set off the package.
Likewise, the rear gets a quad-exhaust setup and a subtle boot lip-spoiler, further distancing the GS F visually from the GS 350 F Sport.
Not much is known yet about the cabin, but the usually plush GS cabin will likely get deeper, firmer sports seats and other performance highlights.
The GS F is expected to make its debut in the far-off future of 2016, so keep an eye on TMR for more updates as they come.
