• 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport Safety Car

LISTEN 01:24

Safety cars are usually reserved for BMW and Mercedes models with added sprinkles of muscle cars here and there. But now, Lexus is joining the fray with introduction of the GS 350 F Sport Safety Car.

Set to make its inaugural duties at the Muscle Car Masters at Sydney Motorsport Park, the GS 350 F Sport Safety Car will, from here on out, serve as the series’ official safety car. To serve in its new official capacity, the GS 350 Sport Safety Car was fitted with all standard equipment befitting its function. The exclusive exterior styling of the car comes with all the decals and an aggressive new body kit. Likewise, the interior was touched up with the same attention to its purpose. Then, the car was also fitted the Lexus Dynamic Handling System (LDHS), a system that features Dynamic Rear Steering (DRS) and Adaptive variable Suspension (AVS).

Under its hood, the GS 350 F Sport Safety Car gets a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 317 horsepower, generating a 0-62 mph time of just six seconds with an estimated top speed of 142 mph.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
