About Lexus SC

A pioneering entry in today's luxury retractable-hardtop segment, the SC 430 enters its ninth year of production by continuing to offer both a sporty character and a comprehensive array of features. Still one of the most evocatively styled vehicles in the entire Lexus portfolio, this V-8-powered, rear-wheel-drive 2+2 boasts the ability to transform itself from coupe to convertible at the push of a button. While the overall genre of high-end open cars has expanded in recent years, true upper-echelon competitors for this distinctive Lexus remain few. Heading the list is the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, with the BMW 335i Convertible, Volvo C70 and Infiniti G37 Convertible offering a more affordable alternative for those willing to accept a six-cylinder engine.

"If youre like me youve admired this cars looks for a long time before you thought about purchasing it. Nothing can prepare you for the smoothness, power and attention you get while driving it. Forget what KBB says the value is, there will never be another car like this one. I feel like a celebrity every time I drive it. I go into the garage just to look at it. The design is timeless, and to think they stopped making this car in 2010. The perfect weekend or night out on the town vehicle. If youre thinking about buying this car, dont worry - it delivers."

"This has been a great car - I bought it new in Feb of '02 and have 105k miles on it. Like most everyone else, I ditched the run flats and am much happier with the handling and ride. Bought the spare myself rather than the $1100 factory spare kit. It has held up exceptionally well. In 8 1/2 years, the only problem I had was the struts for the trunk lid failed at 70k miles. All the other parts, mechanicals and electronics are still going strong including the top quality leather, carpets and high grade plastic parts. Paint has held up very well too. Love the car here in southern California where I get a lot of top down motoring. Though I am an ex-BMW owner, I bought my wife a 2005 RX330 which we both adore as well. Lexus is it for us!"
