BMW has its M division, Mercedes has its AMG, Cadillac its V — for Lexus performance, look to the Japanese brand’s F division. After giving us the sportier IS-F, Lexus has just revealed a new F Sport package for the all-new 2013 GS 350. Spreading the performance love, as they say…
The F Sport Package adds to the new GS350 a new set of 19-inch wheels, sport-tuned adaptive suspension, thicker anti-roll bars, new bushing, and bigger brakes up front. Variable steering is made standard on rear-drive models. Buyers can also opt for a newly developed Lexus Dynamic Handling (LDH) four-wheel steering system that monitors vehicle speed, steering angle and speed, and lateral G to calculate the required rear wheel steering input.
Inside, the F Sport Package adds new seats, 16-way power driver’s sport seat, unique interior design treatment and available F Sport exclusive Cabernet Red leather interior theme.
Although the 306 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 remains unchanged, a more aggressive aero kit, in addition to the aforementioned technical additions, ups the performance of the new GS. For those looking for bolder and more potent Lexus GS, the F Sport Package is what you should be saving for.
