Luxury, four-doors, and speed – it’s a popular combination, one that’s usually associated with the big three German brands of Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz. And while the Teutonic-dominance of this segment is well established, the Japanese are closing fast. One of the latest attempts at upending the executive sports sedan status quo comes from Lexus with the mid-size GS F, the newest addition to the brand’s go-faster F lineup. Based on the GS 350 F Sport, the GS F comes with a larger engine, stiffer chassis, a trick differential, and new suspension, all of which are aimed squarely at models with the letters “M” and “AMG” on the trunk.

Before the GS F, there was the IS F and the RC F, not to mention the venerable LFAsupercar. In part, the “F” lettering is a nod to Fuji Speedway, Lexus’ primary test grounds and the place where cars like the GS F are refined for optimum performance. Lexus says the GS F also saw track time at the Nurburgring – ground zero for bragging rights in this segment.

But it isn’t just about handling and power – to stand up to the Germans, the GS F needs to bring that elusive Jekyll and Hyde personality of face-melting velocity on the track and backside-coddling comfort on the road.

Can the GS F pull it off? Read on to find out.

Updated 10/16/2015: On the U.S. market the new Lexus GS F will be priced from $84,440.
