Lexus SC 430 – Bangalore

Spotted the Lexus SC 430 Special Edition! The SC 430 luxury convertible was one of the first modern production vehicles to popularize a retractable-hardtop design -

Under the bonnet is a refined and bullet proof 4.3 litre V8 engine, producing 300hp and can speed up to 150mph and 0-60 in 6 seconds.

The spotted SC 430 featured a retractable aluminium hardtop, all-leather interior with brushed-aluminum accents, navigation screen with folding wood panel.

The coupe can technically seat four when you look at it; however the spacing of the rear seats is limited, and hence, can be utilized for small kids or pets.

Andrew Frankel from The Times said: “The easy conclusion is to say the SC430 is not a bad car, merely that its opponents are better. But I feel disinclined to let it off so lightly. The fact that I’d rather have any rival would make it bad in this book regardless of its actual abilities. And when those abilities are so limited that there are convertibles costing £20,000 less that eclipse it either to look at or to drive (Audi TT Roadster and Porsche Boxster), its real standing is revealed. “

According to Edmunds, the suspension soaked up bumps like a new sponge but the drive just wasn't very entertaining. But as a luxury convertible with a reputation for very good reliability, the SC 430 should serve you well.

However, SC 430 is a pure exotic in India and without doubt will elicit a “wow” expression from the viewer.
