2013 Lexus GS350 “THE BEAST”
Oh you are some whining, crying, and complaining muth@#&*#s!

“Hey Octavius, I don’t understand why your mentioned the Acura NSX Concept and it aint coming out for 3 years but you didn’t mention the Lexus GS350 and it’s coming out next year…WHY DAMMIT WHY?”

PictureI’ll tell you why, because the Lexus GS350 is not as hot as the Acura NSX!  Now what?

Okay…let me stop being an asshole.  As you can tell from my previous post, I really like the Acura NSX concept; however that doesn’t mean the Lexus GS350 is not a beauty.  I still would take the 2013 Cadillac ATS over the Lexus and I would also take the 2012 Kia Optima over the Lexus GS350.

Side Note…As far as all car ads go, the Cadillac ATS Super Bowl ad was the most watched car ad during the game according to the ratings.

But let’s get back to the matter at hand…”The Beast“.

The technical stuff…The 306 Horsepower 2013 Lexus GS350 has a V-6 engine that can go 0-60 in 5.7 seconds.  It can get up to 28 MPG on the highway. The body has been widened by about two inches and the handling has been improved by incorporating all-new front and rear suspensions.  The GS350 is direct injection allowing for smoother and faster gear changes for greater acceleration and response when hit’n them corners.

Oh and let’s not forget the cockpit…Magnificent!  For the first time ever a car has a 12.3 Inch split screen multimedia display, allowing you to see and do more.  Displaying immediate information on various systems, including navigation, audio and climate controls.  All this with a price tag between $45,000 – $50,000.




Personally I am feeling the inside more so than the outside.  It is not that it’s not a nice looking car but I am not really feeling the grill and front profile.  The large horizontal break in the middle separating the front grill along with the bottom portions of the front bumper is a little too boxy and square for my taste.  It reminds me of a Scion and I don’t want to be reminded of a Scion when I am driving a $50k Lexus.

All in all it is still a beautiful car and I am sure it performs like a dream.  Check out the pictures and the video from Motor Week below.
