I see you guys in your fancy sports cars, so I challenge you with my family sedan. I can do 0-60 in a fast 4.4 while seating five. Can you?

This Lexus GS-F hails from Kyosho’s Samurai line, makers of some of the most overpriced 1/18 resin models in the business. They’re essentially GT Spirit with a $50 markup. It’s no secret I’m quite fond of four-door sports cars, so I already had my mind made up when this model was first leaked. Obviously the one feature you want at this price point is a mesh grille, but I can give Kyosho a pass here because that predator face is a tough one to replicate. Overall build quality is solid as expected, and the model is hefty just like its price tag. Little details include the copper trim around aforementioned predator face, plastic components for the LED “eyes”, carbon fiber trim, and “fake” exhaust tips. If you’re a Lexus lover, the Samurai lineup is one you might want to keep your eye on.
