GS350 F-Sport Adds Drama to Lexus Lineup: 2011 SEMA Show
With plenty of dressed-up tuner cars on display at the Lexus booth at this year’s SEMA Show, the real star is the GS350 F-Sport. It might not have any power adders, but with 306-hp and a 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds it doesn’t really need any anyway.
More than just bolt-on styling components (although it has those too), the G-Sport version gets a more engaging Adaptive Variable Suspension system and new bushings while rear drive models boast a Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS) system. As for those add-ons, the F-Sport gains 19-inch wheels, measuring 8-inches up front and 9-inches in the rear, plus larger brakes with high-friction pads.
Styling is spiced-up with new front and rear bumpers, a rear lip spoiler, F-Sport badging and an F-Sport grille. Lexus will offer the car in three standard colors (Starfire Pearl, Nebula Gray Pearl and Obsidian) as well as two exclusive shades: Riviera Red and Liquid Platinum. Inside the F-Sport gets a special aluminum trim, perforated black leather (Cabernet Red leather optional), aluminum pedals and a more highly bolstered 16-way power driver’s seat.
