Could they have found an older lady to be the host? The whole thing sounds like a paid promo for Lexus.

"In many cases they are now as good as their German counterparts"

next sentence:

"Lexus hasn't just maintained status quo, they've really raised the bar"

How can you raise the bar and yet not be better than the competition. What a shitty series of videos. Also, who the hell buys a 5 series or GS based on autocross performance?

I like the 2012 GS model more than the new 2013..
IMO, the 2012 looks more baller status :/

the new 2013 has a rear of a hyundai.... no?

lexus compares its top of the line gs f-sport with E350 and 535i. its like telling consumers the best lexus can do is to match their competitor's lower end products. thats a terrible message to get across. if they really want to demonstrate to consumers lexus is the best choice, reserve "f-sport" name for the gs thats a M5 or E55 killer and leverage their "toyota" reliability image. who wound't want a m5 thats reliable?

gs-f is suppose to be the e63 or M5 competitor

gs f-sport is like a 5 series with the msport package or an e350/550 w/ the amg package

i can see why someone would pick the f sport over the competition but there's no way in hell anyone's gonna buy the GSF. just look at their ISF sales... oh right there are none because everyone paid an extra 10k and got the m3

It's a nice car, but overpriced IMO. And also, if you're taller than 5'10", it's gonna be a bit tight...(and it becomes a 3 seater) lol

ok I don't know about this.

So what you're saying is, Lexus owners can't afford BMW and Mercedes.

Bill Gates owns a Lexus LS...
