Lexus GS-F coming in 2013 with detuned LFA V10, next SC due in 2013

Lexus is working on a competitor to the BMW M5, Jaguar XF-R, Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG and the Cadillac CTS-V. Known as the GS-F sedan, the model will arrive sometime in 2013 with a detuned version of the Lexus LFA’s 4.8L V10. The capacity of the 4.8L V10 will be reduced to 4.6L, helping it produce 450-hp.

The GS-F will be followed by a new Lexus SC that will hit markets in 2014. The current model is due to finished production this July. Sources say that the new Lexus SC will be a hybrid model powered by a 5.0L V8 with an electric-motor delivering power to the rear-wheels.

Before the new SC and the GS-F arrive, Lexus will bring to the market the new CT 200h hybrid hatchback. Scheduled to go on sale in Europe in 2011, the model is not planned for the North American market.
