Lexus wants a V10 for GS-F

A recent report suggests, the strong V10 engine which will appear in the next Lexus LF-A sports auto could become a part of next-generation GS sedan. Apparently named the GS-F, the vehicle would join the IS-F in the carmaker`s `F` high-performance chain.

Competing with Audi RS6, Mercedes E 63 AMG, BMW M5, GS-F would come a year after the introduction of the all-new 2011 GS. The 2012 auto has not been approved yet, but Motor Trend reports Toyota is strongly considering it.

An eight-speed transmission is almost a sure thing. Members anticipate a design language similar to the IS-F when it comes to increase intakes and other visual extensions
