2013 Lexus GS 350 Videos


Along with a huge photo gallery, Lexus has released a number of 2013 Lexus GS 350 videos — here are the ones I’ve come across so far, starting with the clip that shown right before the GS was revealed last week:

The beginning shot with the moon is great — it reminded me a lot of the second-gen GS Something Wicked This Way Comes commercials, which has me thinking we can expect a similarly aggressive marketing campaign for this new GS.

Next up is a montage of three videos, all similar to the clip above:

There’s interior night shots sprinkled throughout these videos, and the cabin looks fantastic with all its illumination — the interior looks so great, I’m convinced it could sell the car on its own.

We move over to Lexus UK for our last two videos — we begin with this design oriented look at the new GS styling:

Last up is this great driving video:

One interesting fact, and something that’s quite clear from this video, is that special attention was paid to the sound of the new GS — similar to what we’ve seen both with the IS F & the LFA. It begs the question: if the base model sounds this good, what can we expect from the F-Sport edition?

    There is a huge difference in how 2 tons of metal can transport you from point A to B. Time is just not going as fast as it ought to and Feb is too far away to get your hands on this creature,

    This car will once again bring the Lexus brand back to its glory days. Without seeing the car in person I can’t comment on the exterior styling but I like what I see very much. The interior is by far the best in class. The lighting up of the instruments and the dashboard on one of the videos was fabulous. And the very Mac-like  screen seem to work well with the remote touch system. However, Lexus has to make sure that all this infotainment systems work without a hitch from the start or will get dinged at the next JD Power survey!!

    What excites me most is the anticipation of the future Lexus models – especially the LS. Personally I would like it to be the best possible luxury car which for me includes a very quiet cabin. While amazingly quiet, I still prefer that I didn’t hear the engine in my LS 460. Personal preference. Not losing HP to the AWD system would be nice too.

    I share your thoughts exactly—-the next LS must be amazing—-I’m sure that it will be. Your comment on not hearing ANY engine at all is one thing I have always wanted as well with all the LS I have owned…..it is faint still, but would be awesome to hear nothing at all. What a luxury level that would be….although the 600H is very close to achieving—-snarl at most.

    It sounds like a F-Sport model … I meant there’s some video about they tested the regular GS350 back in few weeks ago , the non-F-Sport model is bit more less sound than this (even though it’s similar sound) . Or maybe I’m wrong .

    Btw … there’s a tiny mistake on the last film , the shifting scene .

    the first info is out

    GS-h —)} will have the 4.6L + electric motors
    GS-F —)} will have the 4.8L (V10)

    plus another GS-h plug in hybrid

  • Anonymous

    Do you have a link to that info?

    If it is true, the Germans are going to need to weld their doors on

    That doesn’t right , as the GS450h should be a 3.5-liter V6 with Hybrid system like the old one …

    About the GS-F , it’s just a rumor … might be true & might be not .

    For the GS450h , that news is completely wrong … that news seems to ripped off this one (from MT) & deleted some words , so it’s meaning is gone & messy .

    “The standard GS450h is also headed to Frankfurt in September, and while
    staying tight-lipped about in-depth details, Mr. Kanamori spoke rather
    highly about it. He said it would “outperform” the current 4.6-liter V-8
    GS460. But that shouldn’t require much. The current GS450h hits 0-60 in
    5.9 seconds (0.1 seconds slower than the GS460) with its 3.5-liter V-6
    engine and 650-volt electric motor.”

    we can wait and see

    The article does say that the GS450h will have a 4.6L V8, but I don’t believe that to be true. If it was, it would be called the GS550h.

    The current GS450h will rip a 0-60 in 5.2 seconds. The next gen should get into the 4 second range.

    I agree, we will have to wait and see.

    my thinking is they will begin naming by the engine capacity not by power

    so the 3.5 liter hybrid will be 350h instead of 400h

    then so the 4.6 liter hybrid will make the GS named GS460h

    that’s simple

    plus i think that version the 4.6 liter and all that new naming will be only for the plug in hybrid

    so that means depend on the article GS460h (plug in hybrid) & GS450h with the 3.5 liter

    about the F from the article it hint as it got already the green light to have the 4.8L – LFA

    I’m sure Lexus is totally abandoned V8 for GS already … and even the previous article already confirm a 3.5-liter V6 Hybrid will be covered the line-up of 4.6-liter V8 .

    i just give you the link

    let’s wait and see

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    I asked, but no dice. Hopefully soon, can’t wait!

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Fully agree. *thumbs up*

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Yeah, I’d like the next-gen LS to move back to LS 430-level cabin noise. It’s funny, though, from the side the new GS looks almost identical to the current LS — makes me wonder what shape the next-gen LS will have.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Hmm, interesting thought — though I’m not sure if that kind of trickery is in Lexus’ best interests.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    I’ve seen the UK press release, which specifically mentions the GS 450h — I think we’ll see some improvement with the hybrid portion, but the 3.5L is certainly the engine.

  • http://www.facebook.com/RDS.Alphard Yong Thian Ding

    3.5-liter V6 with Hybrid would be much better than 4.6-liter V8 or 5.0-liter V8 with Hybrid … because it would have a lighter front end . After I see what Toyota did to their Camry , I have more confident about GS450h is 3.5-liter V6 Hybrid with even higher power while lowered the fuel usage .

    I have a 2008 Lexus GS 350 and like it very much.  Now, seeing the new 2012 GS 350, wow – they have really done their homework on this – very nice styling both interior and exterior.  Should definitely compete favorably against it closest rivalries and make a big statement on it’s new direction. I am look forward to the actual release of this car, and feel it will do extremely well in the marketplace.  Go Lexus, very proud of you, designers and the overall positioning of the company.
