2013 Lexus GS 350 Brings New Driving Thrills [Video]
Basically, it’s like a driving footage video you get from every carmaker that pulls out an average car, but it’s much, much better in every way possible. The 3.5-liter growls like no Lexus mill has done before it, while the tires are even screeching for grip at some point.
Transitions to computer graphics of the engine and some xray shots of the chassis and suspension provide added entertainment while proven one point: they’ve really tried to make it good.
Only time will tell if the GS is good enough to call it a driver’s car, but for now we’ll let you enjoy the video. Not before reminding you, however, that the the GS is Toyota’s bid to take back its luxury US market share from BMW and Mercedes by creating a driver-focused mid-sizer aimed to please hearts and minds.
The new chassis is powered by the 3.5-liter V6 which kicks out 306 horsepower, enough for a 0-60 mph time of 5.7 seconds and a run from 30 to 50 mph in three seconds flat.
