THE BEST Lexus

2016 Lexus GS F

2016 Lexus GS F

The Lexus GS F takes the same awesome 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 found in the Lexus RC F, bestowing the spacious and luxurious GS sedan with 467 horses, and a torque-vectoring differential for impeccable cornering.

2015 Lexus RC F Liquid Platinum

The new Lexus RC F sports coupe looks especially striking in this metallic platinum finish, along with body-hugging sport seats in circuit red leather and carbon fiber trim. Of course, the 467hp 5.0L V8 burbling beneath the hood doesn’t hurt either.

After much anticipation, we’ve now experienced both the 467hp Lexus RC F and 306hp RC 350 F-Sport coupes, and all we can say is that Lexus has knocked it out of the park. Head over to 95octane for full details of our test drive.

2015 Lexus RC Coupe

2015 Lexus RC Coupe

The RC takes much of what we liked about the 2014 IS series and packs it into a dynamic and sporty 2-door coupe. Available as the RC 350 with a 3.5L V6 and the RC 300h, a hybrid with a 2.5L 4. We’re hoping for an F-Sport edition too.

2014 Lexus IS 350 C F Sport

The cabriolet hasn’t had the visual overhaul of its sedan brethren, but it has the advantage that it can drop its hardshell top in warmer climes. Powered by 3.5L 306hp V6, it hits 60 in a respectable 5.8 secs, and gets 27mpg (hwy).

We were recently in Vegas checking out the Lexus F-Sport line when this happened. Yes, that’s champion rally car driver Ken Gushi playing a little game of roulette by drifting in a Lexus IS F. It was even more fun inside the car.

2014 Lexus IS Series

2014 Lexus IS Series

We already saw the IS 350 F-Sport and now we’ve driven the entire 2014 IS lineup on the track. The changes aren’t just external. Both IS 250 and 350 handle more aggressively than past models. We like the 3.5L RWD models best.
