The Lexus SC 430 is a stylishly-
designed hard-top convertible that
meets all of the lofty expectations
Lexus usually commands. It is quiet,
powerful and richly-appointed (i.e. 9-
speaker Mark Levinson CD/stereo, DVD
navigation system, burled walnut
interior), and has all of the beautiful
detail so typical of the Lexus brand.
However, as a high-performance (300 hp
V-8) convertible, it is truly unique.
Less expensive than the comparable
Jaguar, Mercedes and Cadillac offerings
that are its primary competitors, this
car is hard to beat.
Convertible top (35 seconds and it is
closed, with the push of a button);
Mark Levinson stereo (best I have ever
heard in any car); gorgeous interior.
More functional back seats; seat belt
placement is a bit awkward.
