Engineering a performance vehicle that can carve through slalom courses as deftly as it dominates straightaways requires optimal balance. It was this commitment that led to innovative components, including lightweight titanium valves and high-strength forged connecting rods. As well as a lightning-fast eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift transmission with downshift rev-matching. And, delivering invigoration for all the senses, its naturally aspirated 467-horsepower* V8 emits a throaty, specially tuned engine sound as it screams toward its impressive 7,300-rpm redline.
For dynamic performance on and off the track, the eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift transmission offers manual control through large steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Precisely positioned for faster gear changes, they deliver split-second upshifts and nearly seamless downshifts. And, when not in Manual mode, the transmission detects when the GS F enters a curve, and holds the lower gear throughout for optimal response when accelerating out.
Putting added control into the hands of the driver, the GS F is the first Lexus sedan to feature a Torque Vectoring Differential (TVD). With three selectable modes—Standard, Slalom and Track—the TVD responds in one-thousandth of a second to vary torque distribution according to cornering conditions. By sending more power to the outside rear tire, it helps propel the GS F around the turn for enhanced agility while also helping you to hold your line with ultimate precision.
Feel confidence through every curve. Embracing you from hip to shoulder, these exclusive low-set sport seats feature a unique foam construction that’s designed to disperse body pressure, increasing support and helping to keep you firmly planted through turns. And, while the embossed "F" on the headrests is a striking design element, the stitching patterns on the seat and seatbacks were created to grab more than just your attention. Inspired by specially crafted athletic sportswear, the pattern’s shape and position were carefully calculated to help provide greater support and grip in high-G situations.
A uniquely shaped, thick-grip sport steering wheel feels as if it were molded to your hands, and puts paddle shifters and voice-activated control right at your fingertips.
The performance-inspired instrumentation found in the cockpit is designed to keep your heart racing. The full-color LCD multi-information display within the gauge cluster allows you to quickly read the data you need to achieve optimum performance. Readouts include performance data such as Variable Drive Modes, gear position and odometer information. Additionally, this in-dash display offers multimedia linkage so that you can view incoming calls, current song titles and more.
Using your smartphone, smartwatch, the Lexus skill on Amazon Alexa* built-in devices, or the Lexus Action on Google with your Assistant-enabled devices,* Lexus Enform Remote can let you start the engine and climate control, lock and unlock doors, and check the fuel level, the status of windows and more.

Lexus Enform Remote is included for the first year of ownership.
Every Lexus is backed by a comprehensive warranty that should give you miles and miles of confidence.

Take a look below to learn more about your standard coverage, as well as additional coverage options.
Reining back such a high-performance beast lap after lap requires serious stopping power.

Intuitive Parking Assist utilizes inconspicuous sensors integrated into the front and rear bumpers that are designed to detect surrounding objects. Using audible tones and an indicator on the multimedia display, the system can notify you of a detected object's location and proximity, helping with routine tasks like parallel parking.
