Lexus / GS / F
By DANIEL DeGASPERI
LEXUS has twice had sports sedans
called into question over the past decade, and the GS F marks the second time
the company has quickly aimed to address initial concerns.
In 2008 the
original IS F was a bit dull, but soon became an excellent sub-BMW M3 offering.
Since then Lexus blitzed expectations with the LFA supercar, the IS F segued
into the RC F coupe, while in 2016 it handed the GS F the sports sedan baton.
It teams a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine and eight-speed automatic,
and for the most part proved an impressive contender.
Its greatest flaw,
however, was its Sachs fixed-rate damping that proved overly abrupt by sports
sedan standards, but downright harsh by Lexus expectations.
Just as the
original IS F aimed to improve, however, the GS F now adds two-mode adaptive
suspension as standard.
At least the brand has clearly again attempted
to make good on its ‘pursuit of perfection’ tagline.
