Lexus Canada GS F Gets Stunning Carbon Fiber Interior Trim

Lexus GS F CFRP Trim

Lexus GS F buyers in Canada have lucked out with a very special Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) interior trim — here are photos from our friends at OpenRoad Lexus Richmond:

Used extensively in building the LFA, CFRP is a lightweight super-strong material — in this particular application, the interior trim has a finish that almost looks like wood. Amazing!

And in Canada I believe the GS F gets the luxury package. KREW or anyone can you confirm?


Honestly I prefer the trim we are getting in the states but this is very original.

I agree I like the states version better but to be able to say you have anything that was on the LFA is really cool!

WOW! I am very surprised but also very happy to see this at Toyota. It shows they are working on the right things. Toyota has shown its expertise with the LFA (McLaren and BMW are the other two experts), it is nice to see them pursuing their development of CFRP. Unlike unidirectional or the common woven carbon fiber reinforced plastic, what we can see in this GS-F is forged carbon fiber reinforced plastic, called forged composites. It is quite different from traditional CFRP and has its own advantages.You can read more about it here: http://www.quantumcomposites.com/pdf/papers/2011-ASC-montreal-forged-suspens.pdf

It looks weird..and cool at the same time, maybe it'll take some time to get used to. Still love the original CF look more though..

Personally, I don't like the specific look of it.  Seems more like a sort of marble stone effect or something.  But it is definitely a very original type of insert.

Agree with most of the comments above.  I'm not feeling the look but that's including the Alcantara on the console, dash, door panels like the RCF, though surely the material quality and execution is top notch.  I would prefer a really dark premium wood personally on this car even over the more traditional CF trim the US model gets.

As I mentioned it is a special CF, in terms of process, that is only used by Lamborghini and some luxury watches such as Audemars Piguet. Forged carbon fiber is stronger and lighter than titanium.
