After a quiet unveiling in Johannesburg, Lexus has finally announced plans to introduce the 2013 GS 350 F Sport at the SEMA Motor Show.

Designed to "engage driving enthusiasts with factory engineering," the model is distinguished by a new front bumper, a mesh grille, a rear diffuser and a trunk-mounted spoiler.

On the handling front, the car is equipped with thicker anti-roll bars, larger front brakes, an Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) system and exclusive 19-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the cabin features perforated leather seats, a black headliner and alloy pedals. There's also a sport steering wheel and aluminum trim.

Power comes from a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 306 hp (228 kW / 310 PS) and 277 lb-ft (375 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in approximately 5.7 seconds. In terms of efficiency, owners can expect to average 20 mpg city / 27 mpg highway (RWD) or 18 mpg city / 25 mpg highway (AWD).
