The Lexus GS F is one of those cars that's been rumoured and whispered about for years but never came to fruition. Spy photographers, however, have at last captured a prototype undergoing testing.

Automedia believes the GS F will hit world markets in 2016 and that it will make use of a more potent version of the Lexus RC F's five-litre V8 tuned to make 372kW.


The engine will be mated to an eight-speed auto and the new model sports a limited-slip differential. Expect the new GS F to reach 100km/h in about four seconds and accelerate on to a maximum of 270km/h.


The Lexus GS F will take on the likes of Mercedes' E63 AMG and BMW's M5.

The supercar will make its debut in 2015, meaning we could see a debut at the 2015 Detroit, New York or Geneva auto shows.
