Lexus celebrated the Millennium by launching the SC 430, a luxury grand tourer that made history as the first ever Lexus convertible.
The SC 430 was an instant hit with the Guardian, who declared it to be ”a deeply luxurious, unutterably comfortable and touchingly glamorous sports car that goes very, very fast, very, very smoothly.”
With the SC 430, Lexus set a tone for coupe-convertibles that continues today with the dynamic IS 250C.
The SC 430 still offers the benefits of a sports coupe with all the highlights of open-top motoring. And with a 4.3-litre engine under the bonnet, you can be sure it can easily keep up with modern times.
The SC 430 is now only available from Lexus through the approved pre-owned programme and is destined to become an increasingly exclusive sighting in the UK.
SC 430 owners are able to take advantage of all the benefits LexusCare. This range of specially tailored products and services ensures a first-class Lexus ownership experience – click here to find out more.
