2016 Lexus GS F, Now With 25 Percent Less Aggro
January 6th, 2015 11:53 AM Share
The upcoming Lexus GS F retains the IS-F’s intense shade of blue, but lacks the bulging fenders, giant wheels and other visual cues that scream “please take me seriously as an M3 competitor”.
Using the RC F’s 5.0L V8 and 8-speed automatic, the GS F will be positioned as a rival to the BMW M5, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and the Audi S6. It will be the only super sedan to offer a naturally aspirated V8 as well.

- Lou_BC "15mpg EPA" The 2023 ZR2 Colorado is supposed to be 16 mpg
- ToolGuy "The more aerodynamic, organic shape of the Mark VIII meant ride height was slightly lower than before at 53.6 inches, over 54.2” for the Mark VII."• I am not sure that ride height means what you think it means.Elaboration: There is some possible disagreement about what "ride height" refers to. Some say ground clearance, some say H point (without calling it that), some say something else. But none of those people would use a number of over 4 feet for a stock Mark anything.Then you go on to use it correctly ("A notable advancement in the Mark VIII’s suspension was programming to lower the ride height slightly at high speeds, which assisted fuel economy via improved aerodynamics.") so what do I know. Plus, I ended a sentence with a preposition. 🙂
- ToolGuy The dealer knows best. 🙂
- ToolGuy Cool.
- ToolGuy This truck is the perfect size, and the fuel economy is very impressive.-This post sponsored by ExxonMobil
I'm with krhodes1 here- I am failing to see the point of these cars. F30/IS/ATS etc are the size of what I think of an M5 etc to be. These are huge. The extra performance/edge of this over a GS350 or an M5 over even a 535i (let alone a 550i) is wasted
If its priced well it should be competitive. It is not really an M5 competitor IMO, its a Sport 550i ($66k) competitor which is good. Although its amazing how much car/engine a Charger 392 is for the money. You can get his kind of speed for $35,000 less. The used car market is only going to get better :)
