The Lexus GS F takes the refined GS four-door saloon and turns up the performance quotient with a potent normally-aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine, earning it the coveted ‘F’ designation. Initially revealed to the world at the Detroit show in January, the 2015 Geneva Motor Show is the first opportunity for European Lexus buyers to see the new GS F in the metal. Discover more about the GS F in the posts below.

Also making its European debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show is the LF-C2 concept, originally unveiled at the LA Auto Show in 2014. This stylish 2+2 roadster concept explores new styling themes that will become part of a new styling language for the Lexus brand in the future – it’s a beauty on the screen, and one that will be better in person.

  1. Sadly, this latest ugly batch support my decision not to buy Lexus again. That is after nearly ten years of very satisfying motoring with new RX top of the range vehicles.
    The appalling ‘gawp’ of a front grille and no significant mains recharging facility, on an otherwise superb hybrid, are the kiss of death for me!

    1. Thanks for your post Cliff
      Sorry you do not like the latest models. Car design can polarise opinion, this is becoming a significant USP of the Lexus brand (that and hybrid of course) and the spindle grille is a distinct design feature. Thanks for your feedback though about the lack of a Plug-in hybrid in the Lexus range, we will pass this back to the product team. Good to hear about your experience of RX ownership, very little we can do if someone does not like the design other than perhaps give us the benefit of the doubt and view the cars in the metal at your local Lexus dealer.

      1. David, perhaps I can add a few facts?
        I did visit a showroom prior to buying my new RX Premier. The ‘ugly’ grille was there too, side by side……. no competition!
        Incidentally, this grille is NOT spindle shaped……. quite the opposite (a spindle is thickest in the middle and tapers towards each end). It is actually ‘pulley’ shaped

        I also went last month, with cash in hand, to add an NX to our Lexus collection….. we have a 250C as well as the RX…….. but the pulley grille made that a loser too.

        As for plug-in charging, I wrote to Lexus twice some four years ago about this failing. They did not respond. Arrogance?

        Mitsubishi is offering the feature and that is a very fair SUV option to what has become an out dated Lexus offering.

        Maybe Lexus should be keeping its technology up to date, rather than trying to out do Audi on rather silly aggressive front grilles?

        I know from experience that Lexus can do so much better and, as I said earlier, I depart with sadness.

        1. Hi Cliff. Thanks for your reply. Looks are subjective so we can understand if you are not a fan of the grille design. Today, we do not offer a diesel option and we are the only premium manufacturer in the UK to offer a full hybrid SUV, so on this occasion we wouldn’t agree with your statement that suggests our products are outdated. Thanks for your support over the years and we wish you many happy EV miles in your Mitsubishi. All the best.

    1. Hi Mark
      Thanks for your post.
      The LF-SA is a design study by Lexus exploring new directions unexpected for the brand. There is no news about whether this car will go into production for example. However we do value feedback such as this as market reaction to concept car is important, it can be instrumental on whether a car manufacturer decides to go ahead with a new product. We will be sure to put any news or updates about this car on our Blog.

  2. I have had several Hybrid cars from Lexus and am just changing my RX 440h for a Mitsubishi PHEV plug in because you are very late into or just not interested in the plug in market. Another lost customer.

    1. Thank you for your post Mike.
      We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to see you go. Although we do not have a vehicle on the market, Plug-in vehicles are of interest to us as we believe that they provide the next step from hybrid technology. We do not have any news regarding future product news but will bring this to the attention of the product team. We would hope to see you back one day.

    1. Hi Az. Thanks for your comment and your interest in the RX. Unfortunately, we cannot comment on potential future models. Please stay tuned to our blog for the latest news and information. Thanks.
