LEXUS GS F
INTRODUCTION
The GS F is part of Lexus’s stable of F-branded high-performance models, cars which
emphasise and strengthen the dynamic and emotional characteristics of the brand.
F stands for Fuji Speedway, the Japanese circuit that’s the spiritual home and development
centre for all the F models, a line which began with the IS F in 2008, followed by the LFA the
following year and the RC F in 2014.
The GS F, a five-seat, four-door saloon is powered by the same potent 471bhp naturally
aspirated 5.0-litre V8 featured in the RC F coupe and benefits from handling tuned in testing
on some of the world’s most demanding circuits, including the Nürburgring.
Its elegant-yet-powerful styling captures the essence of what Lexus ‘F’ models are about,
reflected in the commanding frontal design with race-inspired air inlets, low and wide stance,
brilliant orange brake callipers, carbon fibre rear spoiler and distinctive quad tailpipe
arrangement.
In terms of character, the GS combines its exceptional performance and
handling with comfort and practicality that make it a great companion for everyday driving. It
seats five in a spacious cabin appointed to Lexus’s established standards of premium quality
and equipped with advanced technologies, including the Lexus Safety System+, to make
journeys safer and more enjoyable.
Semi-aniline leather upholstery, carbon fibre interior trim, a high-efficiency dual-zone climate
control system and the Lexus Premium Navigation system with 12.3-inch multimedia display
are all provided as standard.
Lexus’s commitment to delivering driver rewards is supported by the eight-speed Sports Direct
Shift automatic transmission and Drive Mode Select, with four modes that allow performance
to be tailored for any driving scenario – from fuel-saving Eco to ultimate Sport S+.
The GS F is designed to offer the best of both worlds: it’s a car that can deliver the thrills and
excitement on challenging roads, while being able to take you there and back in style and
race-tuned luxury.
Yukihiko Yaguchi, Chief Engineer, says: “As Lexus’s F-brand vehicles continue to evolve and
grow in number, it is important that these models bring different and unique driving
characteristics to their market segments.
“The GS F is a very capable performance saloon that offers excitement behind the wheel in
all kinds of performance driving. It’s a car that’s fun to drive, no matter who is at the wheel, or
where it’s being driven. It embraces the virtues of sound, response and power that are all part
of Lexus’s F-brand identity.”
POWERTRAIN
•
Powerful yet highly refined, race-bred, normally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine
•
Smooth eight-speed Sports Direct Shift transmission
•
New Active Sound Control with improved sound reproduction
High-output V8 engine
The heart of the GS F is its naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8, an engine that has been fine-tuned
to deliver excellent power and responsiveness.
Lexus has deployed a number of different engine technologies to achieve the desired high
performance. For example, lightweight forged connecting rods and titanium intake and
exhaust valves are used to help reduce mass and achieve a 7,300rpm red line. Freebreathing, 32-valve cylinder heads take full advantage of the reduced internal friction.
The camshaft’s working angle and lift have been designed to achieve ample torque generation
to allow continuous acceleration throughout the rev range. Add to the mix optimised intake
and exhaust manifolds and high-performance tuned electric intelligent variable valve-timing
(VVT-iE) and the result is an engine that delivers 471bhp (351kW) at 7,100rpm and 530Nm of
torque between 4,800 and 5,600rpm.
As well as being powerful, the GS F’s V8 is also remarkably efficient, thanks in part to the
tuning of its high-pressure D-4S direct injection system. This allows the engine to run at a very
high 12.3:1 compression ratio. Another important factor in maximising power and efficiency is
the inclusion of a precision-engineered exhaust system. The GS F’s system has a wider cross
section and larger joint sections to help reduce backflow pressure. Additionally, to help create
a deeper sound quality in the exhaust note, a high-function baffle has been placed near the
exhaust tips, containing both stainless steel wool and glass wool.
The design of the exhaust tips themselves has a pleasing aesthetic, featuring a stylish end
cap that’s integrated into the surrounding low-slung rear bumper.
Great aural quality is one of the fundamental qualities of Lexus’s F-designated models and
this is further witnessed in the GS F’s Active Sound Control. This sophisticated system
electronically synthesises and assists the sound of the engine and exhaust as they respond
to accelerator inputs and gear shifts, broadcasting a pleasing note through speakers located
front and rear in the cabin. When activated, sound output from the front speaker rises in line
with engine speed to emphasise the high tone of the air intake and the mechanical sounds
from the engine. At the same time, the rear speaker delivers a strong, low-frequency sound
that captures the powerful exhaust note. Both front and rear speakers operate when the car
is being driven in Sport S+ mode; only the rear speakers operate in Sport S mode and ASC is
automatically turned off in Normal and Eco modes.
When there is a sudden change in engine rpm, for example when there’s a quick up or
downshift, ASC responds instantaneously to add an extra dimension to the dynamic driving
experience. The system can be turned off manually, using a switch on the instrument panel.
Chief Engineer Yaguchi explains: “The GS F’s V8 delivers a high level of performance that’s
worthy of a Lexus ‘F’ model. Painstaking tuning of the intelligent variable valve-timing, a high
static compression ratio and the use of the Atkinson cycle have further resulted in fuel
economy beyond the usual range of a large-capacity engine, particularly during high-speed
cruising.
“Furthermore, with features that go as far as to control idling speed in response to the load on
the air conditioning system, the GS F achieves practical fuel economy comparable to cars that
use stop-start systems in urban driving.”
Eight-speed Sports Direct Shift automatic transmission
The GS F’s V8 is matched to an equally efficient gearbox, the eight-speed Sports Direct Shift
automatic transmission. This offers a smooth shift feel, excellent driveability and linear
acceleration in all driving conditions.
The unit is remarkably light and compact, thanks to its die-cast aluminium case and internal
components. Operation and fuel efficiency are enhanced by the inclusion of a high-efficiency
oil pump and an ultra-compact, high-pressure, large flow volume solenoid that have both been
designed for lower friction and mechanical losses.
The first gear ratio has been calculated to provide excellent response from standstill.
Conversely the middle close-gear ratios have been selected for their combination of fuel
efficiency and ability to enable brisk acceleration at intermediate speeds. At the far end of the
transmission spectrum, eighth (top) gear is optimised for better fuel economy at high speed.
The transmission’s performance is further supported by the adoption of Lexus G-force Artificial
Intelligent Shift Control – G AI-SHIFT. When driving in Sport S mode, the system selects the
appropriate ratio for sporty driving by monitoring the vehicle’s G-sensor and simultaneously
tracking the degree of throttle opening. If the driver invokes a higher degree of throttle (ie they
want to accelerate more briskly), the high-response shifting will perform a quicker upshift. The
G-AI SHIFT control also intuitively blips the throttle on downshifts.
Performance when driving in top-flight Sport S+ mode is further aided by the system allowing
the engine to maintain a higher rpm, ideal for high-load conditions such as on a winding
mountain road.
DRIVING DYNAMICS
•
Drive Mode Select with Normal, Eco, Sport S and Sport S+ modes
•
Torque Vectoring Differential
The GS F has been designed to provide a rewarding experience for drivers of all kinds, from
pure enthusiasts to daily commuters. It’s a practical and luxurious four-door saloon, but its
main mission is to deliver exhilarating performance in a wide range of driving conditions.
Drive Mode Select
The Drive Mode Select system lets the driver access performance to suit the driving conditions
and personal preference. They can choose from Normal, Eco, Sport S and Sport S+, changing
their selection as they wish during the course of any journey.
Normal mode provides the smoothest and most balanced ride quality and drivetrain
performance. Engine output and the throttle opening operate comfortably for everyday urban
and highway driving. Nonetheless, the driver will feel the increase in G-forces as they work
the accelerator pedal harder.
Eco mode helps improve fuel consumption by optimising throttle opening, engine output and
operation of the climate control system. Any excessive throttle input at low speeds is
automatically adjusted and suppressed and the climate control system’s heating and cooling
capacity and airflow are adjusted lower. If the outside temperature is 20°C or higher, the air
conditioner will automatically switch to its recirculating mode for a certain time.
Sport S mode produces more powerful acceleration characteristics for performance-oriented
driving, with control of engine output and throttle opening. Simultaneously, the engine,
transmission and other key drive elements become more powerful and responsive.
Sports S+ mode opens up the car’s full performance driving potential, not only extracting the
maximum from the powertrain (as in Sport S mode) but also modulating the electric power
steering to provide the driver with the greatest degree of feel and feedback.
Torque Vectoring Differential
Lexus’s Torque Vectoring Differential has been honed through many hours of test driving on
some of the world’s most renowned race tracks. It improves the car’s dynamic performance
by precisely controlling rear-wheel torque, giving better control when cornering. The system
has been tuned to provide a natural feel.
The Torque Vectoring Differential transfers an ideal amount of torque between the right and
left side rear tyres, according to data including throttle input, braking, yaw rate, longitudinal
and lateral G-force and other relevant parameters. Torque is transferred almost
instantaneously between the rear wheels, with optimal control, regardless of whether the
accelerator pedal is being pressed or not. The system lets the driver work with more
confidence than ever before, accentuating driving enjoyment well beyond what a traditional
rear-wheel drive car can offer.
The system has three settings the driver can select to suit personal driving style or conditions,
using a switch on the centre console. Standard gives a high level of stability and agility;
Slalom places extra emphasis on steering response, giving the car a more agile character,
akin to one with a smaller wheelbase; and Track provides additional stability when driven at
higher speed, letting the driver accelerate with confidence.
Drive Power Control is a unique feature of the Torque Vectoring Differential. By using highresponse motors as the ECU calculates the ideal amount of torque transfer, a speed-
multiplying planetary gear instantaneously adjusts the left/right torque distribution by engaging
a multi-plate clutch. This highly advanced system can fine-tune torque distribution in a
thousandth of a second.
Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management – Sport mode evolution
Lexus’s Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) co-ordinates the usually separate
ABS, Vehicle Stability Control and traction control functions to give proactive, seamless control
of basic “drive-turn-stop” vehicle performance. It anticipates any loss of traction and provides
smooth control right up to the limits of the vehicle’s performance.
Similar to the RC F, the GS F has new Sport and Expert modes for its VDIM system – functions
that remain exclusive to ‘F’ models.
Sport mode prioritises driver control, offering greater safety and enjoyment when driving on
track, with optimum VSC and traction control mapping.
Normal mode is for smooth driving and a high degree of active safety under normal driving
conditions.
Expert mode is designed to allow the driver to make full use of their driving skills in a similar
fashion to VDIM-Off mode, but with an extra layer of protection to prevent a spin. When Sport
S+ drive mode is selected, Expert mode is active by using the VSC off switch.
In addition, Lexus has extended the VDIM co-operative control function, allowing the system to
delegate two brake control functions to the Torque Vectoring Differential: drive-force distribution
and yaw-movement control. VDIM controls the torque transfer co-operatively with the TVD for
more seamless control of driving and turning.
PRECISION-TUNED CHASSIS
•
High-rigidity body designed to maximise handling capability and ride comfort
•
Performance-tuned double wishbone front/multi-link rear suspension
•
Adaptive Variable Suspension fitted as standard
•
Brembo performance braking system with front cooling ducts
•
Electric Power Steering tuned for sharper responsiveness and driver feedback
Higher driving pleasure
The GS F corners securely and has excellent straight-line stability thanks in part to a new
chassis with a rigid structure, responsive yet compliant suspension and a performance braking
system.
Lexus developed new parts to achieve the required high stability and performance, including
highly rigid front and rear body braces (the front brace has a closed section to gain an even
higher degree of stiffness), additional front brace attachment points and new rear suspension
mounts.
The double wishbone front suspension has lightweight, high-rigidity forged upper and lower
aluminium control arms, with coil springs, bushes and anti-roll bar. The multilink rear
suspension also uses forged aluminium control arms, with increased torsional rigidity and
optimised suspension arm bushes.
For the 2017 model year, Adaptive Variable Suspension was added as a standard feature. To
accommodate the new technology, a number of changes were made to vehicle systems
including the Torque Vectoring Differential (where fitted) and Vehicle Dynamics Integrated
Management (VDIM). If Lexus’s Pre-Crash Safety system is fitted, AVS control is used to
adjust the damping force of the shock absorbers, improving the vehicle’s responsiveness if a
high collision risk is detected.
To enable faster cornering speeds, notably through high-speed sweeping bends, the GS F
has been fitted with wide, large-diameter tyres that can handle high lateral G-loads, and
proven-quality ZF Sachs shock absorbers.
Stopping power is courtesy of a Brembo system that features brakes with front 380mm
ventilated discs with lightweight, rigid, opposed six-piston aluminium monoblock callipers and
rear 345mm ventilated discs with four-piston callipers. Slots on the discs’ braking surface
provide stable performance with high fade resistance, while spiral fins give excellent cooling.
The combination of a large-diameter master cylinder and a booster helps to achieve highly
responsive brake feel with a short, performance-oriented brake pedal stroke.
Engine and transmission oil cooling performance is supported by a pair of stylish but fully
functioning brake ducts set just below the headlights at the car’s front corners.
The electric power-assisted steering is tuned for excellent dynamic performance and feel.
Intensive testing and calibration of the power-assistance curve have ensured steering feel
matches vehicle characteristics. A damper-less intermediate shaft has been added to the
steering column, to increase rigidity and give high responsiveness to inputs.

Performance-oriented aerodynamics
Aerodynamics played a key role in the origination of GS F’s design as a high performance car.
One of the most challenging areas to reduce drag was around the front tyres, where a great
deal of air turbulence occurs. To help create freer airflow, the attention to detail included
designing special groove-shaped front bumper liners.
Overall efficiency has been achieved by using specially designed undercovers beneath the
engine compartment and lateral undercovers located under the mid-section of the vehicle
floor. These channel cooling air towards the rear differential, while a rear undertray rises at an
angle to act like a diffuser. Aerodynamic stabilising fins have been added to different sections
of these panels to further suppress airflow turbulence and reduce drag.
The front of the car is defined by a particularly strong rendition of the signature Lexus spindle
grille with an F-logo mesh pattern. More visual impact is provided by the large air inlets set
beneath the headlights, which channel airflow into ducting behind the grille to cool the engine
oil. The grille also features a lower moulding made from Lexus’s Carbon Fibre Reinforced
Plastic, which increases front downforce. The wings have a wide flare and large air outlets
that allow any excess airflow to escape down the sides of the vehicle. These combine with
sculpted sills to give the car extra visual muscle.
Viewed in profile, the GS F’s flowing silhouette is amplified by the aerodynamically styled door
mirrors and centre pillars finished in a contrast metallic paint finish. The bright orange brake
callipers, emblazoned with the Lexus F logo, are another stand-out feature. The 19-inch forged
aluminium wheels are manufactured using weight-reduction technology and are fitted with
255/35ZR19 tyres at the front and 275/35ZR19 tyres at the rear.
The rear end carries through the powerful themes displayed at the front, not least in the Fbrand’s distinctive quad tailpipe arrangement. Other highlights include a bootlid-mounted
CFRP spoiler, rear diffuser and aerodynamic fins added to the lower edge of the bumper to
improve airflow and reduce drag. The rear light clusters have an organic shape and feature
black plated mouldings that match the trim garnish on the boot.
Although the GS F is based on the current Lexus GS platform, its dimensions are different,
being longer and wider due to extended front and rear overhangs. It also sits lower to the
ground. There has been no compromise in interior or load space – the boot is big enough to
hold up to four golf bags. A handy boot hatch is provided to help with carrying longer items,
such as skis, and the bootlid is power-operated.
The GS F is available in eight exterior colours: F Sport White, Mercury Grey, Sonic Silver,
Sonic Titanium, Graphite Black, Mesa Red and Azure Blue.
Interior design
The GS F’s cabin tastefully melds craftsmanship with world-class ergonomics and
functionality, but true to its status as a high-performance model, special emphasis was placed
on creating a driver-centric cockpit. This is witnessed in the design and layout of the
instrumentation and switchgear. Special attention has been paid to the size and legibility of
the graphics to ensure instant recognition of information and data.
The central TFT analogue tachometer has a large diameter and silver detailing. The
appearance and information presented in the central meter changes according to which drive
mode is selected (further details in the Driving Dynamics section, above). The GS F also
provides a colour head-up display which allows the driver to see key data such as speed, rpm
and gear shift position without having to take their eyes off the road.
An authentic Lexus ‘F’ ambience is supported by highly supportive seats. The high-backed
front sports seats – in a design exclusive to ‘F’ models – have bolstering to support the thighs,
hips and back and an ergonomic design to provide a particularly comfortable shoulder section.
Even the upholstery stitching and panel arrangement on the front seats have been designed
to mirror human bone and muscle patterns to help secure the best possible comfort and bodyholding performance and minimise fatigue on long journeys.
The rear seats use the same upholstery technique and feature specially designed headrests
that mirror the high seatback shape of the front seats. High-quality semi-aniline leather is used
as standard and the front seats have electric adjustment and heating and cooling functions,
with position memory settings on the driver’s seat.
The GS F’s special status as a Lexus ‘F’ model is witnessed by the exclusive three-spoke,
leather-trimmed steering wheel with short-stroke shift paddles, gear shift knob and foot pedals.
High quality trim materials are used, including Alcantara for the upper section of the instrument
panel. The attention to detail extends to special rivets featuring the Lexus emblem being used
to secure the Alcantara to the dash. Elsewhere there are genuine carbon fibre elements on
the doors, instrument panel and console box.
A new white LED interior lighting system combines warmth with brightness. The system uses
specially adapted LEDs to maintain a uniform light through the cabin.
Customers can choose from three interior colours: black, red and a striking red/black
combination, each combined with carbon fibre trim.
ADVANCED ON-BOARD TECHNOLOGIES
In addition to its handling and power credentials, the GS F also benefits from the kind of useful,
advanced on-board technologies that have become a trademark of Lexus models.
Audio system
The team which designed the GS F’s audio system sought to replicate the sensation of sound
experienced in a concert hall or cinema. Even the GS F’s door panels have been designed to
support that aim, housing key audio components.
Two systems are available: a fully digital 12-speaker system with a high-efficiency 299-watt
amplifier and Coherent Source Transducer that smoothly blends high and mid-range sound
while suppressing phase deviation; and a 17-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound system
with a 705-watt-equivalent amplified and energy-saving GreenEdge speaker technology –
double the sound output for the same amount of power.
Navigation and telematics
The GS F is equipped as standard with Lexus Premium Navigation, with a 12.3-inch highdefinition central display screen and Remote Touch Interface controller which is intuitive to
use, like a computer mouse.
Air conditioning
The GS F’s climate control system incorporates S-FLOW, an energy-saving mode that limits
operation to the front of the cabin when the system detects there are only two people on board.
This gives better cooling or heating efficiency, as well as reducing fuel consumption.
The dual-zone air conditioning system automatically co-ordinates and controls heating
devices, seat heaters and seat ventilation airflow. It also removes pollen, dust and any exhaust
gas from the ambient air.
SAFETY AND DRIVER ASSISTANCE
•
Comprehensive safety and driver assistance features, including Lexus Safety System+
•
Additional safety features include Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Lexus Safety System+
Lexus Safety System+ brings together a number of active safety and driver assistance
features that can help prevent an accident happening, or mitigate the force of a collision. It is
one of the most advanced and comprehensive safety packages of its kind, developed by Lexus
as part of Toyota’s progress towards the elimination of vehicle accident casualties.
Fitted as standard to the GS F, it provides a Pre-Crash System with pedestrian detection
function, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive High-beam System and Road
Sign Assist.
Pre-Collision system
Lexus’s Pre-Collision system uses a camera and a millimetre-wave radar to monitor the road
ahead for any vehicles or pedestrian’s in the car’s path. If it determines there is the risk of a
collision, it triggers a warning buzzer and light on the multi-information display, and prepares
the brakes with Pre-Collision Brake Assist to provide additional stopping power (in line with
calculated level of collision risk) the moment the driver presses the brake pedal.
As an extra layer of protection, the Pre-Collision Brake Assist activates the GS F’s brake lights
to warn following vehicles before the driver actually begins to apply the brakes, reducing the
likelihood of a rear-end impact.
If the driver fails to brake, or the system determines that there is a high probability of a collision,
the system will automatically operate the brakes, slowing the vehicle or potentially bringing it
to a stop before any impact occurs.
PCS operates at speeds above 6mph, with the brake assist function available from 18mph.
The relative speed between the car and the vehicle in front needs to be at least 6mph; the
pedestrian detection function works at a closing speed of 49mph or lower.
Adaptive Cruise Control
The Adaptive Cruise Control uses the same front-mounted camera and radar system as the
Pre-Collision Safety System to help the driver maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.
Its operating parameters allows the car to be brought to a halt if necessary, and accelerate
back to the pre-set speed if the vehicle in front pulls away within three seconds of stopping.
Lane Keep Assist
Lane Keep Assist helps the driver maintain the car’s correct path, monitoring white line
marking and activating a warning light and vibrating the steering wheel or sounding a buzzer
(the driver can select their preferred alert) to encourage the driver to take action if it detects
the vehicle is moving out of its lane without the turn indicators being used.
Adaptive High-beam System
The system uses a camera located behind the windscreen to detect the lights of vehicles
ahead and oncoming and automatically adjust headlamp light distribution to avoid dazzling
other drivers, while maintaining the best possible forward illumination.
Road Sign Assist
This function uses a windscreen-mounted camera to detect a range of international-standard
road signs (including electroluminescent and flashing signs). The signs’ warnings or
commands are presented on the car’s multi-information display to reinforce their message and
reduce the risk of the driver not noticing them.
Additional safety features
Lexus Safety System+ is only one aspect of the features provided on the GS F for safer driving.
Drive Start Control intervenes if the driver operates the shift lever while pressing on the
accelerator, suppressing engine power output to keep vehicle speed and acceleration below
a predetermined level, reducing the risk of damage from a collision. At the same time, a
warning will appear on the multi-information display.
There is also an Auto Location Tyre Pressure Warning System which monitors pressure at
each wheel and warns the driver if any is running low. A sensor in each tyre allows pressure
values to be shown on the instrument display. When low pressure is detected, the value on
the display is highlighted in amber. The system can be reset using a switch on the steering
wheel, or via the multi-information display.
The Blind Spot Monitor uses a rear-mounted millimetre-wave radar to detect vehicles
travelling in an adjacent lane and warn the driver with a flashing light in the near or off-side
door mirror, as appropriate. The same camera and radar are used by the Rear Cross Traffic
Alert, which warns of vehicles approaching from either side, for example when the car is being
reversed out of a parking space.
The GS F is further equipped with a Rear View Monitor and parking sensors. The monitor
helps with reverse parking manoeuvres by providing a real-time view of the area behind the
car, overlaid with guidelines showing the vehicle’s path in line with movement of the steering
wheel. The parking sensors provide both a display and warning buzzer to indicate how close
the car is to other vehicles or obstacles when manoeuvring in tight spaces.
Passive safety and security
The GS F’s passive safety equipment includes dual-stage driver and front passenger airbags,
front and rear seat side airbags and curtain airbags. The car is also fitted with a security alarm
with ultrasonic break-in and tilt sensors.
