The new Lexus GS is the first production car to be created using the new Lexus design philosophy. It integrates elegant, seamless coachwork with unparalleled cabin ergonomics and luxury interior fit and finish.
In Europe the GS will go on sale during the first half of 2005, offered with a choice of the Lexus 4.3-litre V8 or new 242bhp 3.0-litre V6 petrol engines. Both power units are matched to a new, close-ratio six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift mode. The Adaptive Variable Suspension lets the driver choose between two damper settings to suit driving style and road conditions.
The GS has been created with the express aim of achieving class-leading safety performance. It benefits from Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM), which enhances performance, traction control and vehicle stability. Further contribution to safety is made by the radar-controlled Pre-Crash Safety system (PCS), which automatically ensures optimum emergency braking performance and pre-tensioning of the front seatbelts.
