Although Lexus has yet to confirm plans to offer a high-performance version of the GS sedan , it appears the Japanese luxury automaker is indeed working on a competitor for the BMW M5 and the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG . And this time we’re not quoting another rumor that surfaced the Interwebz, but relying on a batch of photos we just received from our trusty paparazzi. Yes, folks, the Lexus GS F is alive and rolling on tarmac, although for the time being only in the form of a prototype.

The sports sedan is set to arrive for the 2016 model year, when it will join the brand-new RC F in Lexus’ quest to take on BMW’s popular high-performance sedans .
