Lexus premiered its all-new GS 350 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last weekend. drawing its inspiration from the Lexus LFA supercar, the all-new GS sports a new aerodynamic body on a completely new platform with a wider stance and stiffer structure. fitted with an advanced 3.5-liter V6 engine with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) mated to a six-speed sequential shift automatic transmission (with paddle shifters). this 306 horsepower luxury sports sedan is capable of making the century sprint in just 5.7 seconds and reach an electronically limited top speed of 142 mph (229 km/h). alongside the signature spindle grille is the deep-set high-tech headlights and L-shaped LED daytime running lamps – 26 LEDs in total to be exact.
it took a team of more than 1,500 engineers and craftsmen, and more than five years in development, the all-new GS 350 features room for four and a huge 18.7 (530-liter) cubic-feet of boot space that’s enough to stash four (and probably more) golf sets on any day to the course. other creature comfort and entertainment include 18-ways adjustable power seats, 17 speakers, white LED interior lightings, Bluetooth-enabled multimedia system and a brand new 12.3-inch split screen multimedia display. the all-new GS 350 also features three new colors that are new to Lexus color palette: Rivera Red, Meteor Blue Metallic and Liquid Platinum. these are just the tip of an iceberg, check out Lexus GS 350 official page to find out more but in the mean time, do check out more images and a ‘trailer’ of this beautiful luxury sedan after the break.
