PEBBLE BEACH, Calif —
Lexus on Friday held the world premiere unveiling of the next-generation GS 350 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The all-new GS 350, due for launch in early 2012 - and with GS hybrid and GS F-Sport versions also in the pipeline, is a pioneer characterizing the future of Lexus.
The fundamental requirement of the GS1 is to provide a refined and spacious atmosphere for comfortable travel at any speed over any distance. The new GS 350 more than satisfies this requirement, with rapidly evolved performance and state-of-the-art technologies that further define the pleasure of ownership, the joy of driving and the feeling of luxury that resonates through the senses.
The signature spindle grille, with trapezoidal contours evolved from current Lexus styling, features the fusion of the Lexus-unique inverted trapezoidal upper grille and a trapezoidal lower grille with a functionally integrated brake-cooling duct. This distinctive new front represents the future direction of Lexus front-end design.
The GS 350 marks the third major Lexus evolution following the LFA and the CT 200h. Not only does the GS 350’s excellent handling and agility take driving performance to a new level, the peace of mind and joy of driving that it offers truly embodies the essence of a new generation of Lexus vehicles.
