A grand tourer that was originally designed to compete with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CL, the Lexus SC has always been an outlier, enjoyed by connoisseurs of cars that offer a combination of comfort and reliability with the open-top motoring experience. This 2002 Lexus SC430 is a perfect example of the second generation of SC, and with an original MSRP of $61,000, this garage-kept car has plenty of choice options that have helped it stay modern.
This silver example of a 2002 Lexus SC430 features a beige leather interior with plenty of wood adorning the dashboard and steering wheel. This electrically-operated hard-top convertible can go from slick-top coupe to open-top convertible in just 25 seconds. The Lexus SC430 was designed with particular emphasis applied to its performance in the wind tunnel, enabling engineers to craft the car so that, when the roof was down, wind would be channelled away from the passenger compartment. The interior also features the premium Mark Levinson audio system that was offered on the SC430 from the factory, which includes speed-sensitive volume control.
The engine underneath the hood of the Lexus SC430 is a 4.3-liter V8 which powers the grand tourer through a 5-speed gearbox. With 288hp and 317 lb-ft of torque, the SC430 can do the 0-60mph sprint in 6.2 seconds.
