The 2016 Lexus GS F has just been priced in the United States with the M5 and E63 AMG rival to set U.S. customers back a minimum of $84,440, excluding the obligatory $940 destination, processing and handling fee.
We’re still waiting on pricing details on the various options available for the GS F but do know that it will be available in Molten Pearl, Ultrasonic Blue, Ultra White, Atomic Silver, Liquid Platinum, Nebula Gray Pearl, Caviar and Matador Red.
On an engine front, the GS F features the same naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre V8 from the RC F but tuned to deliver 467 hp at 7100 rpm and 527 Nm of torque between 4800 and 5600 rpm. While Lexus has yet to reveal performance specifications for the 2015 GS F, it should hit 100 km/h from a standstill in around the four and a half second mark.
Interestingly, the Lexus GS F delivers significantly less power than the 552 hp strong BMW M5 but importantly, the GS F weighs about 130 kg less coming in at a total 1830 kg kerb weight making it easily the lightest car in its market. The aforementioned 5.0-litre V8 is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission complete with a manual shift function.
