For Sale: 2002 Lexus SC430 in Gilroy, California

Vehicle Description

2002 Lexus retractable-top SC 430.  IT was conceived by Toyota's
European design center, the SC 430's curvaceous lines somewhat mimic those of the Audi TT, though on a slightly larger scale. To that, the designers added a bit of French Riviera style with sweeping fender flares, a sculpted hood, and a broad brushed grille. The sculpted tail resembles a slightly widened, previous-generation Acura CL, while the glinty-eyed trapezoidal headlights are very Toyota. Overhangs are short, with the wheels pushed hard to the corners.  It is powered by an all-aluminum 4.3L V-8 with VVT-i powers the SC 430-it's much the same unit as in the flagship LS 430 sedan.  At idle the 300-hp DOHC power plant is silky smooth almost where you have to check the tachometer to be sure it's running. Introduce the accelerator to the floorboard and 325 lb-ft of torque slides you back into the cushy leather trimmed seats. Power delivery to the rear wheels is long and linear, with a throaty V-8 exhaust note that tells the world this is no ordinary compliant Lexus. On the track, the SC 430 proved it was no slouch, pulling 0-60 mph in 6.1 sec and blasting the quarter mile at 14.5 at 98.3 mph…..This is a stunning example of a 2002 Lexus SC 430 hard top convertible.  It runs and drives great, super smooth, dependable, safe and very luxurious.  This drop top has been fully serviced and only has 112,980 original miles.  There are about an inch of receipts and a clear California title.  #24027   Now on display at the home of “over the top cars”CHECKERED FLAG CLASSICS 7743 MONTEREY ST GILROY, 408-847-8788-or 888-625-2774, Buy with confidence I am a licensed bonded California dealer.  On the web: checkeredflagclassics.com
