Timeless classic
By Brendon on


1997 Lexus SC 400 2dr Coupe


This car is a classic that has a lot of potential. Styling is flawless and timeless. It also has surprisingly good headroom for rear passengers, though legroom is a bit lacking for them. Its certainly not a car built for practicality, given it lacks fold-down seats, but it makes up for looks. It can also return surprisingly impressive fuel efficiency on the highways, even for an 11 year old V8. I've averaged 26-29 MPG depending on speed, no lie.

Best Features

Build quality and interior styling, ride is confortable and seats are nice and soft

Worst Features

Acceleration is good (0-60: 6.7 sec), but by today's standards its nothing exotic or uncommon. Winter performance is pretty bad, even for RWD.
