렉서스 세단의 새로운 얼굴 GS 350
6기통,3.5 리터에서 뿜어져 나오는 306마력은 충분히
중대형세단을 거침없이 도로를 질주 하도록 도와준다.
기존 GS350 모델이 가지고 있던 형태의 컨셉은 존중하면서
트렁크 룸과 내부공간을 이전보다 더 많이 확보하여 진일보된
공간 디자인을 보여준다.
또한 최첨단 리모트 터치 시스템은 자동차의 모든 환경을
조정할 수 있도록 구성되어 운전자가 운전중 보다 편리하게
운전과 그외의 부가적인 활동을 자유스럽게 할 수 있도록
도와주고 있다.
(일기예보, 오디오, 전화, 네비게이션, 그외 ...)

요사이 일본과 우리나라에 관계가 불편하다.
그리고 가려져 있던 렉서스의 그늘도 어느정도
우리의 눈앞에 펼져진 것이 사실이다.
그래도 어찌되었던 나라와 회사를 떠나서
좋은 디자인은 사람을 감동시키고, 움직여서
새로운 패러다임을끈다.

the 2013 lexus GS 350 is a mid-size luxury sedan, borrowing elements from the company's recent LFA supercar
but designed with a spacious interior and a range of driving modes to transition easily between performance
and more day-to-day needs.

the vehicle is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, generating 306-horsepower and 277-pound-feet of torque
and featuring a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

retaining similar exterior dimensions to the previous 'GS 350', the 2013 model increases cabin and trunk space
and widens the vehicle's door frames for easier entry and exit. the trapezoidal spindle grille integrated
into the front bumper represents a design feature that lexus plans to include in future vehicles.

inside, the 's-flow' auto climate control system saves energy by focusing airflow only to the front areas
where passengers are actually seated. as in other lexus models, the vehicle's 'remote touch'  interface
permits the operation of climate, audio, phone, navigation, and other controls via a single controller
at the driver's right side.







the body design of the 'GS 350' incorporates fins into the side of the tail lamps
to better direct air flow, while the underbody of the rear bumper reduces wind resistance.

elements borrowed from the lexus LFA limited edition 'supercar' include a more aerodynamic body
and wider and more rigid platform, with increased numbers of spot welds and the inclusion of laser welds.
a new suspension system makes use of lighter-weight aluminum front control arms and an improved
rear suspension geometry to at once enhance control and cornering force and also improve rider comfort.
inside the vehicle, the dashboard also borrows heavily from the dashboard design of the LFA sportscar,
while models with the optional built-in navigation system feature a 12.3-inch touchscreen.

'lexus enform' connects users to web and social media offerings, including bing web searches,
movie ticket and dinner reservation services, facebook, pandora, yelp, and stock quotes.



the 'GS 350' features a range of driving modes in addition to its default operation: the fuel economy -optimizing 'eco' mode,
performance-driven 'sports' mode, and handling-optimized 'sports+' option. the vehicle is produced in both rear
and all -wheel drive, with the latter reportedly capable of varying front-to-rear torque balance from 50/50 to as much as 30/70.

the vehicle's extensive safety system includes 10 airbags and a 'whiplash injury lessening' front seat design
that increases the likelihood that occupants will be seated in the safest position possible at the moment of impact.
an optional pre-collision alert system uses radar cruise control to provide warning of upcoming objects that may result
in collision, using an infrared camera to monitor the driver's eyes and sound an audio warning if he appears
to not be looking forward. the system also can initiate automatic braking two seconds before collision
if the driver has not yet responded. a night vision system and 'lane keep assist' with 'lane departure warning'
alerts are also available for inclusion in the car.



produced in red, blue, and platinum, the 'GS 350' is the first to make use of two new coating technologies:
red models incorporate glass flakes into the paint to add brilliance, while the process behind company's 'liquid platinum'
exterior has been modified to increase shading and contrast. the vehicle is available beginning february 2012.
