Lexus GS F Sport gets ready to take BMW’s crown

If you’re in the market for a large sports saloon, then it might be worth giving the New Lexus GS F Sport a second look. Perhaps you remember the LF-Gh Concept, which looked like it could eat small animals whilst sitting stationary.

And there, emerging from the ruins would be living incarnations of the new era; cars and bikes, powered by clean, renewable energy and travelling through air fit for all to breathe.
