Exhaust Notes: 2016 Lexus GS F

Headphones in, volume up. Here is a montage of exhaust notes from the 2016 Lexus GS F loaded up with a naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 engine delivering 467 hp exclusively to the rear wheels.

 

Like most other Lexus’, the GS F comes with a feature called Active Sound Control (ASC), which pipes in induction and exhaust noise into the cabin via two speakers (front and back) for a more engaging experience. We call it brainwashing, but we’ve slowly succumbed to its alluring 7,300 rpm wail. There’s nothing else like it on the market, and there was no chance wasted in getting the revs up high to keep that track on replay.


The piped-in noise does make a big difference, and transforms the cabin into an almost video-game-like experience. From the outside though, the exhaust can sound a little flat, almost like the orchestra that was missing one vital instrument. From the inside however, the whole gang is present, popping baritones, cellos, and a few hints of violin at that crucial redline.
