Last week we brought you details about the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport that the company planned to unveil at SEMA 2011, and the video below shows its reveal.

While clearly a step up from the blend-into-the-background 2013 Lexus GS 350 in terms of appearance and handling, the GS 350 F Sport doesn’t do anything to increase the base model’s power output of 306 horsepower and 277 lb.-ft. of torque.

Call us jaded, but that kind of output to push around a car that approaches two tons with a driver on board doesn’t put the GS 350 F Sport on our list of must-drive sport sedans. In fact, we’re struggling to call it a sport sedan, even if it does include an adjustable suspension and bigger brakes.

But maybe that’s the point. There are plenty of sport sedans for those who like to drive fast, and the majority tend to be on the high-strung side, especially when driving in bumper-to-bumper, rush hour traffic.

The GS 350 F Sport, perhaps, is a kinder and gentler sport sedan, aimed at those who still want a measure of handling, but served up with a big dose of style and reliability. There’s no doubt that the leather interior will be an exceptionally pleasant place to soak up the miles, whether or not the road includes switchbacks.

We’ll reserve final judgement until we have a chance to drive the car, but we wish the GS 350 F Sport looked more like the GS-F, also shown in the video below. More horsepower would have piqued our interest, too.

  1. The share Lexus family front ends do look quite handsome. I'd say just as nice as Audi and Merc.
