Although these pictures only expose little sections of the front end of the car, it’s remove the GS F gets a much much more aggressive look. It looks so different that we expect to see toned-down modifications to the rest of the design variety in 2015.
There’s a much larger front air intake, like the one seen on the RC F as well as new NX SUV, covered in chrome fit together as well as surrounded by carbon-fibre trim. A totally new headlamp style likewise features, likely with a full-LED configuration with daytime running lights underneath.
The significant multi-spoke alloy wheels will be special to the GS F, covering the much larger performance brakes fitted to this model.
We found the GS F testing earlier in the year with deeper side skirts as well as a new rear bumper, shrouding the conventional angled quad-exhaust system of quick Lexus models.
Technical details are unconfirmed as yet, however the GS F ought to get a big proportion of tech as well as mechanical tweaks carried over from the RC F, albeit beefed as much as cope with the larger saloon’s additional weight. That 5.0 litre V8 is likely to get an eight-speed automatic gearbox as well as a Torsen limited-slip differential.
We expect to see the GS F in priced at around £80,000. even more details will emerge at the car’s Detroit unveiling in January 2015.
