Other than some missing badges and (hopefully) a not-yet-finished rear fascia, what you see here is an undisguised look at the long-awaited Lexus GS F high-performance sedan. Lexus' answer to the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, the GS F has been spotted again.

Unlike our previous spy shots, though, this time around, the sporty Lexus has been caught testing on the Nürburgring, so our spy shooters have managed to get a look at the car from all angles. Building on the aggressive styling of the GS F-Sport, the GS F gets bigger air intakes and a lower chin spoiler up front. Like before, we see the signature stacked exhaust outlets, but they still seemed roughed into rear fascia, which gets an aero-aiding diffuser.

We still only have guesses as to what will be under the hood, but a 465-horsepower, 5.0-liter V8 sounds good to us. Expect to see the production GS F on the road by 2015.

      Love the looks but needs more power. An M5 would walk all over this thing, needs 500+ HP to be competitive

        I’d be willing to bet the GS-F will be priced slightly above the 450h (in the mid 60s range) and with 465hp it should compete just fine with other luxury sedans in this price segment. The M5 and E63 are probably $25-30K more than the Lexus will be so it’s not apples to apples.

      Thats not a camo free view of the final car. Its a mule without camo. Just look at how ill fitting some parts are and how the front grill was attacked with a saw. The final version will not look just like that though the differences will likely be minor.

      465hp naturally aspirated V8 would be good for an S6/550i/E550(though they stopped making those) competitor. If they want to deal with the RS6, M5, E63, Lexus needs something more powerful. I hear the engine they stuck in a hopped up LS sounds interesting. Detune that to 580-600hp if they plan on selling the LS650, if not, give it the full beans in a GSF.

      465 hp is not good enough in this class. Hell, it is barely good enough in the high performance compact luxury sedans segment.

        Dude it's the best in its luxury sports class. Do your homework.

          Since Lexus no longer makes a V-8 powered GS this underpowered 465 horsepower performance sedan sort of makes sense. If they decide to price the GS F similar to an M5, E63 AMG, RS6 though they will have a problem. Lexus has the German wannabe issue with the LS600hL costing nearly as much as a Mercedes-Benz S600, BMW 760Li, Audi A8L W-12. Lexus just isn't on the same level as the Germans when it comes to horsepower.

      Today's Lexuses look like aging Hollywood movie queens with horrible plastic surgery. It's like they're trying to be young again and the closest they can come up with is slash-and-burn designs which are caricatures of their former elegance and clean lines. Sad.

      Lexus as a brand is in trouble, on the down end, Lincoln Acura and buick are eating its cake, on the upper end, ze germans and cadillac are feasting on its lunch.

      It will have a turbo, making another 100HP, so expect 560HP, around where the BMW M5 sits. The next LS may get a twin-tubro set-up for 650HP in 2-3 years.
