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.
