THE LEXUS GS F MIGHT BE ONE OF THE MORE OVERLOOKED PERFORMANCE SEDANS, BUT THIS ONE WEARS ITS UNDERSTATED PRESENCE LIKE A BADGE OF HONOR AND HONES IN ON ITS JDM ROOTS
In a world with luxury sedans like the Audi RS7, Cadillac CTS-V, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, and BMW M5, it’s easy for the Lexus GS F to be un deservingly overlooked. The GS F is a rear-wheel-drive thrust-performance sedan, which is one of the few offerings Lexus deemed worthy of stand-alone “F” branding. (Fun fact: “F” stands for Fuji, as in the legendary Fuji Speedway). Powered by a 5.0L V-8 engine pushing out 467 hp in stock form, the GS F is more than capable of holding its own.

This ’16 GS F owned by Brandon Choi won our hearts due to the sheer fact that this much carbon fiber has been added without making the car appear too flashy. When chatting with Brandon, he mentions he loves that the GS F is understated. “The reason for the car and the color is not to stand out; I always loved being low key. I like being a sleeper and try to be humble. I still have people mistake my car for an F Sport,” he explains. F Sport? Try adding 150 hp and two cylinders to that notion. People will quickly understand once Brandon pulls away on the highway or off the line.
