Great to see a different color on the car. Pics are a little too res to get nice detailing, but I'm not complaining.

I too want to see this car in Infrared.

Wonder if the production version will have those shiny black outside mirrors with the white paint. Usually, painted mirror-housings take the body-color....except for some quirky packages like the Union-Jack mirrors on the Mini-Cooper.

I cannot wait for this car!

As of late black side view mirrors are a growing trend in the industry. I would like to see a carbon fiber option!

That car is all you buddy. Add your touch and it will be perfect.

Yes...looks-wise, I like the idea of a carbon-fiber option, too, though how well that would hold up to the elements outside remains to be seen.

Since the GSF is in Barcelona, will it run with the bulls?
No offense to just Lexus, but, with the thin sheet metal on most of today's cars, the LAST place you would want to take one is around bulls. :D;)

(BTW, the most noted bull-run is probably the one in Pamplona. People actually get out on the street and run with the bulls....sometimes getting tossed around and hurt. And, if that isn't quirky enough, the same town also has a big tomato-fight each year where everyone pelts each other with thousands of whole tomatoes. Go Figure).o_O

Is it just me or the headlights different? I think this is the standard headlight with the circular look instead of the triple L-LEDs.

No, it's not just you, though part of it may be the camera-angle. Nevertheless, I think the headlights and bezel-trim ARE a little different, and, if you look closely, when they used the all-black spindle-grille on the white one, without any chrome-surround trim, the "L" Lexus emblem is noticeably lower on the all-black grille than it is in the black/chrome grille on the blue car. There also seems to be somewhat less fender-overhang on the blue car, forward of the front wheel, than on the white one.

So, I'm with you...think Lexus actually did two different prototypes here, with slightly different exterior tooling/specs, on the two front ends.

Wow I love it! It makes the details of the car pop so much more in white, versus in blue. I can't wait to see it in other colors!

Come on Lexus, GS F in Atomic Silver, make it happen. Give us fans a big WOW moment :D.

Those taillights continue to grow on me, especially seeing now on a non-blue car. It just look so sinister, yet so Lexus, and so GS.

You're probably right...those look to be the new standard LEDs rather than the pricier triples, which is what Lexus is doing with the RC and NX.
