2015 NAIAS Highlights: 2016 Lexus GS F


Lexus takes another step to fight with the Germans. At this year’s NAIAS, it showed off the long-rumor GS F to the world. Just like what previous rumors told us, the GS F is ordered to go head to head with Audi RS6, BMW 5, the latest Cadillac CTS-V, Jaguar XFR-S, and Mercedes E63 AMG. It’s not an easy job to beat them. Moreover, it comes with a naturally-aspirated engine from RC F, V8 5.0 liter. The powertrain has 467 hp at 7,100 rpm and 527 Nm of torque at 4,800 – 5,600 rpm. It is mated with 8-speed automatic transmission with manual shifting.

On paper, the GS F can’t chase its rivals which have more powerful engine. The M5 has 552 hp, the E63 AMG comes with 550 hp, and the Caddy CTS-V produces 640 hp. But Lexus GS F is lighter than its competitors. According to the automaker, the 4-door luxury sedan is 1,830 kg of weight. It means that it is lighter than BMW M5, Mercedes E63 AMG, and the fastest one Cadillac CTS-V. I don’t know whether its weight could be effect to beat its rival on the track.
