To top all that, the model will have a wicked powertrain which produces around 500 horsepower, and since its production involves various high-technology process, it will be capable to use this power in the best possible way. Though the design of the GS F will use some of the styling cues used on all the current Lexus models, which will make the model look like part of family, the new sedan will surely have a distinctive and unique style to offer.
Basic Architecture And Body Design
The 2016 Lexus GS F will use the chassis that currently underpins the RC F model. This chassis uses lightweight materials, such as carbon fibers and aluminum, and those materials can be seen throughout the model’s body. This technological move will make the car very light weighted, which will have a positive impact on its performance and marginally, on its fuel efficiency. Also, the chassis will be altered to fit the slightly bigger measurements of the sedan, meaning it will offer more space and comfort. In addition, the new model will also borrow certain styling cues from the aforementioned RC F, though we must stress that the sedan is very unique. Its overall shape and lines are very elegant and aerodynamic, which also helps improve the performance, so the sedan looks smooth and sophisticated. On the other hand, this elegant look is enhanced with certain details that make it look fierce and aggressive. These details are smart and not-to dramatic, such as new edgy headlights, revised grille, quad exhaust tips and big bumpers, but they surely give this model a sharper look. It is obvious that the manufacturer paid a lot of attention to the sedan’s design, and we can honestly say: Job well done.
