For some reason, Lexus found there to be no need to put any disguise on its incoming Lexus GS F while out testing, save for debadging it. So, what we could be looking at here is either a completely undisguised Lexus GS F super saloon, or just a GS F test mule wearing a temporary GS F Sport body with some extra exterior trim tacked on, such as the front lip and side skirt extensions.
The side air intakes on the front bumper do look bigger than those on the GS F Sport, though. It’s not the first time we’ve seen this car. We definitely know it’s a GS F because of the diagonally-stacked quad exhausts at the rear – a design that made its debut on the high-performance IS F version of the last-generation IS.
Still no idea of what’s going to be under the hood. The last pure ‘F’ Lexus had a 5.0 litre direct-injected, high-compression, normally aspirated V8 under its hood, producing 423 PS and 503 Nm, mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Will Lexus go with a big V8 again, or could it go with a turbo V6 this time?
The GS is a segment larger so it may not share the same engine with a smaller Lexus F model, but it’s worth to note that the RC F that we saw in a spy video earlier this year didn’t sound turbocharged, but sounded like it had some kind of growly V engine for sure.
