Anthony Crawford, co-founder of leading automotive resource Car Advice, named the mighty GS F as his pick for The Winners Circle – Car Advice’s version of Car of the Year.
Crawford selected the mighty sports sedan among a highly talented field and paid tribute to its broad range of abilities. “I’ve been infatuated with the hi-po Lexus ever since my first introduction in Madrid (at the international launch in 2015),” Crawford said. “Right from the outset, this was one of those rare cars you tended to put a lot of trust in from the get-go, even on track and pushing at ten-tenths.
Crawford’s love of the GS F was cemented when he drove it in Japan in late 2018 on the legendary Hakone Skyline – one of the world’s great driving roads. “The Hakone drive was truly epic,” Crawford added. “In our video, you can see us catching some very quick world-class superbikes. It’s so well balanced with superb response and feedback that it begs you to push harder but without the fear of some performance models. “With the Lexus, you don’t have to be a racing driver to get the best out of it, or indeed enjoy it.”
