2012 Lexus GS-F in the works? Watch out M5

The BMW M5, Mercedes E63 AMG and the Cadillac CTS-V better hold on to their butts. According to MotorTrend, Lexus is working on a 2012 Lexus GS-F that is powered by the 5.0 liter V10 engine found in the Lexus LF-A supercar.

While details are a bit sketchy, Lexus engineers are said to be protecting the next-generation GS to be able to carry the Lexus LF-A’s V10 500+ horsepower¬†engine.

If approved, the Lexus GS-F would hit the roads in 2011 as a 2012 model year. You can expect to see visual enhancements as seen in the Lexus IS-F, like the four vertical exhaust pipes in the back. If this is true and with the debut of the production Lexus IS-F just around the corner, Lexus can give BMW and Mercedes something to worry about.
