The New Lexus GS430 Sport

The powerful and elegant Lexus GS series is being given a new performance dimension with the introduction of the GS300 and GS430 Sport models, unique to the UK market.

The GS models have consistently been among the best-performing cars in their segment, thanks to powerful straight-six and V8 engines and superb chassis design with front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration. Now the package is being given extra allure with revised suspension settings and larger wheels shod with wider, lower profile tyres.

Modified springs and shock absorbers and more robust anti-roll bars have been supplied by the company’s motorsport division, to give a more sporting handling performance. With the suspension revisions, the Sport models sit 20mm lower than the current SE models. They ride on new 18-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels fitted with 245/40 ZR18 tyres.

The new cars are also distinguished by styling features, including a mesh finish for the front grille, deep front air dam and a rear spoiler on the GS430 and rear lip spoiler on the GS300. These additions have been designed to blend harmoniously with the naturally flowing lines of the GS’s body shape.
