LAS VEGAS — A new F Sport package for the 2013 Lexus GS 350 will be unveiled next week at the 2011 SEMA Show. The kit features chassis and interior upgrades and distinctive exterior trim.

The F Sport edition of the GS 350 features the same 307-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 that powers the standard GS 350, as well as that model's six-speed sequential-shift automatic transmission and paddle shifters.

Included in the GS 350 F Sport package are unique 19-inch wheels, sport-tuned adaptive variable suspension, thicker stabilizer bars, stiffer bushings and larger front brakes. Rear-wheel-drive models also get variable-gear-ratio steering and staggered-width wheels with 235/40R19 front and 265/35R19 rear tires. All-wheel-drive F Sport models are equipped with 235/40R19 all-season tires all around.

An option on the GS F Sport is a new Lexus Dynamic Handling (LDH) system with dynamic rear steering. Lexus said the system can automatically customize the adaptive suspension tuning to suit vehicle speed, road conditions and driving style, while independently managing both front and rear wheel steering angles to help improve turn-in response, rear grip, vehicle control and overall agility when cornering.

The F Sport interior comes with a new 16-way power sport seat with increased lateral support, power side bolsters, thigh support, adjustable seatback and four-way lumbar. Aluminum pedals, perforated leather and aluminum trim dress up the cabin, which can be ordered with Cabernet Red leather.

The F Sport exterior can be finished in a choice of five colors, including two new hues — Riviera Red and Liquid Platinum. The exterior features a sport front bumper and rear lower valence, rear lip spoiler, F Sport mesh grille inserts and badging.
