2016 LEXUS GS-F

Bright Ultra White paint, bold infrared interior, and 19" forged alloy wheels, the 2016 GS-F isn't exactly your average four door sedan. The V8 pulls the Lexus from 0-60 in 4.4 seconds and big Brembo performance brakes stop the car on a dime. Lexus has build a street machine with race inspired power and handling. The sport suspension makes the car incredibly nimble and responsive while cornering. With 467 horsepower and paddle shifters the Lexus GS-F sets itself apart as a renown luxury car.

Under the hood
The Lexus F series uses a 5.0L engine making 467 HP and 389 ft lbs of torque backing all that power is a eight speed direct sport shift transmission with paddle shifters. Using a Torque Vectoring Differential ( T.V.D. For short ) the rear end perfectly distributes power for maximum traction. The GS-F multilink rear suspension and double wishbone front suspension allows the car to float over bumps and ride like a dream, while maintaining traction in the corners to lay down the power. Stopping all that power is a performance Brembo brake kit with bigger rotors six piston calipers.

What's inside

Dual climate controls and heated/vented seats allow everyone to adjust their settings and ride in comfort. The media center features a DVD/CD player, am/fm/xm radio, Bluetooth and auxiliary inputs with a Mark Levinson 17 speaker audio system.
