EXTERIOR: Racy yet classy design. This car can go anywhere and feel right at home, be it a business meeting, a wedding reception or a day at the park with buddies. INTERIOR: The leather seats are extremely comfortable. Front passenger room is more than adequate. Ergonomics are great with the exception of the cup holders. Of course rear passenger room is not the forte of any sport coupe, however, a large 6'3" 220lb. teenager fits back there (to my surprise). Performance/reliability: Where this car absolutely excels. Have had no repair issues. A regularly maintained SC 300 might run forever. Incredible on the curves, heart pounding passing power, top end close to 150 mph (not recommended).

This is a great car. I have all the regular maintenance done at the dealership which is expensive but I have never experienced ANY issues. Of all the cars I have previously owned, this is the first car that I truly enjoy driving. I would recommend this as a used car for anyone purchasing. I will only buy Lexus going forward based on my experience with this car.

Luxury. Perfomance. Both coexisting
happily in the Lexus SC 300 Coupe.
Drive for hours on the interstate and
it will seem like minutes.
The car goes wherever you point it and
requires barely one finger to steer.
Steering by telepathy, I call it.
Drive over the roughest terrain and the
car stays on course. No road condition
upsets this car, such as bumps in mid-
corner. And its quiet. Cant even tell
the engine is running except for the
beautiful sound of the exhaust.
