It's not the fastest sports car, it's not the most plush luxury car, but the balance of sport, luxury, and fun is hard to beat. At a whim (or stop light) you can go from a very solid hardtop coupe to a convertible. You can let the automatic transmission smoothly take you from 0- 60 or you can manually advance the gears to provide that little rush of adrenaline. Within it's category it provides maximum flexibility with minimum commitment.

"Gentlemans Dream Car"

My tltle for the review comes from what the ticket taker at the ferry told me as I was driving home with it. I bought the car because it was a 4 passenger with a hard top. Lexus was the only car that fit that criteria 4seats-hardtop{not a rag top}. It wasn't until after I bought that I realized all the things that made it a "dream car" the interior comfort in just sitting in it, the stereo,tilting rear view mirrors when the car is put in reverse, quit motor, powerful motor, quiet interior as you travel with the top down at 60+ mph, GPS,and you can't averlook the comments you get about the car

How to look at the SC430

Review

The "back seats" are for luggage, not people. (actually for insurance). It's basically a 2 seater, with dummy back seats so insurance costs are lower. You can do 4 people, but it's awfully tight...ok for short disdances in a pinch. I've done it, even rode in the back. Other than that, it is a luxuious 300HP go cart. If you like to get racy, fill the tires to near the limit (44 psi?) It has The Best factory Stereo Ever made.. period.

Review

The retractable hardtop is a plus, but the main feature is the interior; Rolls quality. Not quite the handling of a Porsche, but not the rough ride either. In summary, this is one of the very few, if not only, roadsters you can drive cross country comfortably.

This car has it all. A hard top that folds into the trunk. V8 power, 5 speed automatic, killer sound system, Lux ride, strong performance, 4 seats and I get 19.5 miles per gallon around town and 22 on the road. When compared to other cars in it's class it is a bargin price.

A great car

Review

While every auto magazine seems to pan this car for performance, the truth is, this car equals the Mercedes SL 500 on the zero-60 tests, has better build quality and the interior and engine is about as nice and smooth as it gets. I would like to see another 30 h.p. and I like to see Lexus comeout with their own AMG or "M" division so that Lexus can compete with these performance machines.
