True Grand Tourer.
The car drives and handles very sporty,
while maintaing a luxary feel, but not
isolated like a Benz.
All the comforts you could want in a
capable high speed cruiser. True GT car.
The manual transmission cars are rare,
but a must when choosing a SC300.
Worth waiting for. I searched 5 months
before my dealer located a 5speed SC300.
Definitely worth it.
Tilt away steering.
When I turn off the cra, the steering
wheel telescopes in and up, allowing
easy exit and ingress.
When you out the key back into the
ingition. the steering wheel
automaticaly comes down to your presset
Could use bigger factory wheels.
The rear wheel well fits up to 275/45/17's!
And if I ever want, I could always add a
Supra turbo kit on. It has the same

I’ve got the 5-speed manual version
that made C&D's 10 Best List for three
consecutive yrs. This car would have to
rank as one of the best luxury sports
coupes made in the mid-90's. It is a
magnificent blend of luxury and
sports. The car feels molded to you as
the leather seats, steering column
provide incredible adjustments. The 225
HP engine emits a wonderful sound when
you get into it. Zero to 60 in 6.8
seconds. Tight, reliable and
beautiful. An impressive luxury
interior and a reputation for long term
reliability. There are only a few
hundred 5-speed manuals. Don't buy the
SC300 w/o a 5
speed, get the 400.
Engine, interior, exterior, staggering
factory stereo system with six speakers
and a sub-wooer. Its a compete package.
More horsepower (who wouldn't), bigger
wheels. Do not touch anything else or
you'd screw it up.
