I am pretty sure its the GS300 since, according to my knowledge, the GS400 was introduced only for the Amercian market which would make it LHD.
Also, the number plate does not seem to be diplomatic/embassy.

Secondly, there does not seem to be an indicator on the front bumper which all american cars have (some sort of road legislation).


Anyway, how come he is driving with those dark tints ? Won't the cops fine him on every chance they can get ?

KP - It's a Lexus GS alright but to be absolutely sure about the engine i.e. 300/400 you'll have to go back to the pump & take another pic of the car from the rear

It is not a GS 300 , it is a JDM Toyota Aristo. I cant tell for sure but it might be a Vertex Edition Aristo with a 3L 2JZGTE VVTi Twin turbo engine.

The Toyota Aristo is a JDM (Japan Domestic Market) and the Lexus GS is the export/US market Version

Almost all Lexus cars like the GS, LS , LX you see in India are JDM Toyotas rebadged Lexus.
