Putting the sport back in the GS.
The 2012 Lexus GS promises to bring some competition to the German sport sedans that have dominated the midsize luxury segment. The new GS will offer more “sport” than the previous generations and break out of its conservative styling shell.
And while that is all fine and dandy, the folks at Five Axis have decided that the GS needed to be even more dramatic with its styling, which is why they have unveiled the Project GS for the 2011 SEMA Show.
Nothing says “sport” like a wide body conversion. So, Five Axis gave the Project GS a custom widebody conversion with bigger front air intakes, rear diffuser, spoilers, side skirts, and of course, wide fender flares. The entire car was then covered in Glacier White paint with contrasting Slate Gray accents. Inside the bulging fenders sit 20 x 9.5 front and 20 x 10.5 rear Five:AD S5: F alloy wheels with 245/35 ZR20 front and 285/30 ZR 20 rear Yokohama Advan Sport tires.
The handling and braking performance was also upgraded to make the Project GS an all-around performer. The entire suspension was replaced with an AirRunner TC-5 air suspension system for adjustable ride control. A complete Stoptech front and rear big brake kit was also installed for better performance. The front set uses a 380 x 32 mm rotors grabbed by two-piece fixed, six-piston calipers. The rear features four-piston fixed calipers and 355 x 32 mm rotors for superb stopping power.
As part of the Five Axis SEMA Lexus package, the tuner has installed a custom exhaust system with dual finishers and unique silver textured accents in the interior.
The Five Axis Project GS will be on display at the 2011 SEMA Show from November 1st to 4th.
