Lexus GS F Prototype Hits the Nurburgring

The upcoming 2016 Lexus GS F has been spied testing at the famous Nurburgring for the very first time. With camouflaged clad across the doors, bumpers and front fascia, there’s no mistaking this Lexus prototype for anything other than the performance-oriented GS F.

Under the hood, the Lexus GS F will reportedly feature a tuned variant of the RC F’s naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine. Lexus engineers will apparently lift power into the 500 hp region with torque likely to sit around the 400 lb-ft mark. Consequently, the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG rival should hit 100 km/h in around 4.5 seconds as well as a top speed exceeding 270 km/h.

Underpinning the 2016 Lexus GS F will be a similar rear-wheel drive chassis to the RC F but it will be changed to suit the larger overall size of the GS F. It is also expected to be available with four different driving modes which adjust many of the aspects of the performance-oriented luxury car including the throttle, transmission and rear differential.

The following prototype is wearing a special set of sports wheels while also feature a similar stacked quad-tailpipe design to Lexus RC F and outgoing IS F. It also a set of more sporty and aggressive bumpers.
