Lexus GS 450h – adrenaline test

Lexus engineers go to extreme lengths as they develop our cars, including driving the Lexus GS over 1,000,000 miles through some of the toughest environments on the planet.

But our friends at Lexus Italy wanted to test the new GS450h another way.

They recently held an exclusive event, designed to offer a taste of the car’s incredible performance.

Lexus Italy invited a number of enthusiasts along to a race track for a passenger ride in the car. Each of them was asked to try to keep their heart-rate below 120 beats per minute.

As the video below shows, the challenge was harder than some had expected…

  1. Is the opening music a real piece of music or specially made for the commercial? I’d love to own it for personal listening.

    1. Hi Chou,
      Many thanks for your post!
      The music was specifically made for the video. As this is a Lexus Italy video, we would suggest you speak with someone there for the finer details of getting hold of the music. Check out their website here, – in fact it features the same video on their homepage! We hope this helps, many thanks.

  2. I am fortunate to own one of these superb cars, although I don’t drive it like quite like the video so my heartbeat stays well below 120 BPM.

  3. I have seen some ugly cars but this beats them all ,
    The front is really horrible.
    Most Lexus have technical advantage on most cars but their general look
    is dreary and not very exiting.
    To sell more the technically advanced Lexus please pay more attention
    as to how they look. In today’s culture the name of the game is LOOKS.
    Best wishes and good luck.
