Lexus GS 350 F-Sport - click above image for hi-res gallery

It's tempting to dismiss Lexus' F-Sport as a direct Audi S-Line rip off. But unlike Audi's visual-only appearance upgrades, F-Sport actually offers some performance (intake, exhaust, brakes, etc.), handling and exterior body mods. Advantage, Lexus.

And we like the Yakuza-y stance of this GS 350 F-Sport. The GS has in many ways been the forgotten Lexus for the past few years (it's a 5 Series competitor, don't you know), but this TRD tuned GS has us remembering. First, is the paint – in this case Vibrance Orange Glow Candy. Hubba bubba. There's also a full ground effects package and a grill insert (which kind of makes it look like the new Subaru Legacy), F-Sport wheels, shocks, springs and brakes. All in all a well done if not enticing package. And get this -- the IS 350 C F-Sport is done up in the exact same way.

      Looks good, i like it !!

      Furthermore, it is a good move by Lexus to introduce the 'F-Sport' upgrade package to the lineup and no-doubt will prove relatively popular.

      Keep up the good work.


      ps. an IS350 'F-Sport' would defantly be one of the best V6 models on the market

      Looks a bit too boy racer for me.

      Are lambo doors an option?

      F-ing Love it!

      I want specs....0-60 skid pad etc. Should be a capable performer with all the F parts installed.

      Looks great also.

      Still waiting for the next GS Lexus !

      At least they used a GS and not the ES... otherwise it would be just a Camry TRD.

      also, if you notice on the LFA there is the stylized F near the side mirror.

      remember lexus tried the L-Finesse line which used a similar designed F way back in the day.

      Don't stand in front of that thing if anyone starts it. Before you know it you'd be plastered to the hood going down the road at 130mph with no way to stop.

      Are the floor mats a delete option on this years model?
