2013 Lexus GS Featured on SpeedTV’s “Shut Up and Drive”

In case you missed the Lexus GS starring in SpeedTV’s new Shut Up & Drive show with Justin Bell & Townsend Bell, here’s the full twenty-two minute episode:

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but ended up enjoying the show — I thought both the hosts did an admirable job in their first episode, and the race up Rowena Loops in Oregon looked crazy-treacherous in the fog & rain. Not a bad watch at all.

Very nice. This will certainly contribute to a shift in peoples apreciation of Lexus as a maker of driver's cars.

Yeah, I saw it on TV. Although, I hate Justin Bell as he does everything for the person who is paying him rather than giving his honest opinions. When he was test driving the LFA around Infineon, he was telling everything LFA is the most confidence inspiring car he has ever driven and when Motor Trend hired him to do the "Driver's car of the year", he completely did a 180 and said LFA is "not a very confidence inspiring car" because that is what they told him to say in the script. The guy is a total sell-out. He sold LFA out when he was paid by Motor Trend to read the script.
As we all know the new gs350 trumps all the competitors i just wish the gs could have more torque.

    You're right.Motor Trend just compared it with the M35h & Panamera Hybrid & the GS won!
    Thank you now german fanboys or american faboys can stfu about Lexus car since the gs takes a dump on the competitor even ones that cost 40k more
This was actually a good little video. It makes me want to go race.

I enjoyed watching these two cars, but did anyone notice how the windshields were digitally blacked out throughout the whole time they're driving both cars? What gives? Was that to conceal ( possibly ) a different driver who was actually behind the wheel? I'm not knocking the cars, but am questioning the legitimacy of Shut Up and Drive....

    I didn't notice this, but doubt that it's because it was a different driver -- perhaps to hide the camera equipment?
