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.
True Grand Tourer.
The car drives and handles very sporty,
while maintaing a luxary feel, but not
isolated like a Benz.
All the comforts you could want in a
capable high speed cruiser. True GT car.
The manual transmission cars are rare,
but a must when choosing a SC300.
Worth waiting for. I searched 5 months
before my dealer located a 5speed SC300.
Definitely worth it.
