Lexus News: Rumors That Won’t Just Die: Lexus GS-F

Recommended Posts

A few years ago, rumors began to fly around of a high performance version of the Lexus GS to take on the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz E55/E63, and Audi RS6. Power was destined to be a V10 producing somewhere in the range of 500+ HP. However, the past years have brought forth nothing and the only thing close to this dream machine is the GS F-Sport package shown at SEMA.

But that hasn’t stopped the rumors from flying out. At the LA Auto Show, sources at Lexus told Autocar that thy “would love” to launch a high-performance GS. Autocar is also reporting that the GS performance model will come with a detuned version of the LFA’s 4.8-litre V10, producing somewhere around 450 HP.

We’re not holding our breath on this one.

The Lexus GS isn't any good. At least the last one wasn't, the 2012 might be decent, but it has a carry over powertrain from the old car, and the inside looks like a BMW rip-off. And 450 hp with likely a sub 400 torque rating isn't going to take on an M5. The 550i will probably outrun the Lexus V10.
