[VIDEO] 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport revealed ahead of SEMA image

The Japanese based automaker Lexus has decided to reveal its 2013 model year GS 350 F Sport ahead of its SEMA Motor Show debut, after a quiet unveiling in Johannesburg at the South African event.

According to the car manufacturer, the 2013 GS 350 F Sport takes its power from a 3.5 liter V6 engine which is developing 306 horsepower and 375 Nm of torque (277 lb-ft), mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in around 5.7 seconds while returning an average fuel consumption of 20 mpg in city and 27 mpg on highways with the rear-wheel drive system, while with AWD the vehicle does 18 mpg in city and 25 mpg on highways.

“The all-new GS 350 with F Sport package will offer our customers more agility and a sportier appearance. The racing-inspired F Sport components were precision engineered for this vehicle, providing quality performance without compromise”, said the Lexus group vice president and general manager, Mark Templin.

The automaker says that the GS 350 with the F Sport package will be equipped in standard with 10 airbags, including knee airbags for both passenger and driver, rear seat mounted side airbags and side curtain airbags, along with the new Whiplash Injury Lessening front seats which are designed to help limit excessive head movement.

The Pre-Collision System which is using the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control System is also offered in standard, along with other features like the Night Vision System, Heads Up Display, Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Keep Assist and Lane Departure Warning.

Sadly the automaker didn’t announce an official starting price for the 2012 GS 350 F Sport but the vehicle might hit worldwide showrooms early next year.
