We’re just a few days into 2015 and already the excitement is flowing thanks to a couple of big events to kick off the new year. One is the Tokyo Auto Salon which will be going down in Japan this weekend, and the other is the North American International Auto Show which will kick off next week in Detroit. Some very impressive machinery is set to debut in Motor City, and Lexus got an early start on things by dumping some info on its new 2016 GS F.
Like the RC F Coupe that came before it, the GS F is aimed right at its luxury performance rivals and looks to mate the go-fast goodies of that car with a roomier four-door sedan platform.
Power for the GS F will be supplied by a 5.0-liter V8 making 467 horsepower and 389 pound feet of torque. The transmission is an eight-speed automatic and there’s also a multi-mode torque vectoring system on board.
Perhaps best of all, Lexus has said that with a weight of just over 4,000lbs the GS F should have a significant weight advantage over its competition.
You can expect to hear a lot more about this car after its official debut next week.
