    Did not like the commercial at all since it was not an accurate representation of a car's capabilities. Even if you took a Suzuki Swift (reasonably priced car) and put a passenger who has never done extreme driver and put him with a driver who can really push the limit of any car. You end up with a passenger with a fast heartbeat and possibly dirty seats. Also, I absolutely hated how they dubbed the voice of a racing sport bike. I mean, seriously. How old are we?? 12??
    • I think it was an accurate representation as the new GS has been proven to be a capable track car especially in F-Sport trim (which the car in the advert was). In head-to-head comparisons, it has beaten the BMW 5 series, the A6 and the Infiniti as a driver's car.
  14. Keep in mind, this was a GS450h F-Sport, with the exclusive Cabernet Red leather interior, sold in Europe only, which we do not get in The States...... BD
  15. You know a Lexus video is good when I actually show it to my wife.
  16. Good commercial from Lexus! I'm tired hearing that hybrid cars are just for fuel economy lol. Expect the LF-LC to be really badass.
  17. Some of the people are genuinely scared.
