I love this car!! Can't go anywheer and
not get noticed. A true joy to drive
and great on long road trips. Very nice
design and very fast! I would recommend

My 2004 Absolutely Red SC-430 is a
dream to drive. It performs with
outstanding agility and finese. As a
coupe it is a typical Lexus, quiet,
refined and quality build.
As a convertible it is an eye-catching
drive to drive. Some of the best hours
f my day are spent in the driver's seat
of this suberb vehicle.
