The fourth member of the Lexus ‘F’ family, following on from the IS F, LFA and RC F, is the GS F – a highly impressive F-performance vehicle packed full of technology and the best new features, like a 12.3-inch split-screen full colour LCD display, a Mark Levinson® surround sound home audio system, a Drive Mode Select system, and digital connectivity.

Torque-vectoring varies the amount of torque to the wheels using electronically actuated clutches with three mode settings – standard, for stability with agility; track, for additional stability at speed; and slalom, for extra agility.

There’s a stylish hand finish to the quality of the exterior paintwork, plus exclusive scuff plates, front bumper and grille, and inside enjoy luxury leather-trimmed and highly supportive seats, leather steering wheel, and aluminium audio controls.

The GS F has inherited a 550-hp 5.0-litre V8 engine and an eight-speed automatic gearbox from its predecessor, the Lexus RC F. With an engine like this you can expect a 0-62mph speed of 4.6 seconds. The rear-wheel-drive handling makes the car easy and exciting to drive whilst keeping you safe; indeed, safety sums up the features in the GS F, which has no less than ten airbags, Road Sign Assist and Blind Spot Monitor.
