The GS F might be one of Lexus' sportiest offerings, but comparing it to top-of-the-line Germans like the BMW M5 and Mercedes-AMG E63 is unfair, because those cars pack a more substantial wallop.
Yet its price is closer to these vehicles than the tier-below Germans that more closely match the GS F's performance specs, the M550i and E53.
The 2019 Lexus GS F is like a PG-13 cut of John Wick.
Sure, most of what you tuned in for is there, but it doesn't quite feel like you're getting everything you paid for.
There's really only one reason to get the GS F: the naturally aspirated V8.
It's a hell of a price to pay, but then again, rear-wheel-drive V8 sport sedans are an almost-dead breed in 2019.
If you want to relish the past, this is a great way to do it, but you have to accept a whole host of trade-offs to make it happen.
Life is all about sacrifices, anyway.
