Performance from the Ground Up
Exhilaration isn't made in a computer lab. It's discovered behind the wheel, over the course of many miles More than 1,000,000 miles, in the case of the GS. By widening the track by almost two inches and increasing the body rigidity by 14% through additional optimally placed spot- and laser-weld points, the result is a Lexus you have to experience to believe.
Handling was made even more precise by incorporating all-new front and rear suspensions. Engineered with aluminum components and larger bushings, they reduce unsprung weight and deliver significantly greater agility. And, in the rear, improved suspension geometry further enhances control and tire cornering force.
306-Horsepower V6 with Dual VVT-I
Boasting direct injection, one of the most powerful base engines in its class and teh core sound of the LFA, the GS puts the exhilaration of 306 horsepower at your fingertips. In Manual mode, its new, faster-shifting six-speed transmission can be controlled with paddle shifters. By automatically increasing the engine speed during downshifts, their throttle-blipping function delivers faster and smoother gear changes for greater acceleration and response coming out of corners.
The GS is engineered to handle all types of curves--even those thrown by Mother Nature. By monitoring current driving conditions, available all-wheel drive automatically allocated engine power between the front and rear axles. This can provide improved traction and control on a wide range of road surfaces and in inclement weather.
