For Sale: 2003 Lexus SC430 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 2003 Lexus SC430 goes well beyond its ultra-low mileage to provide you with coddling luxury at an obtainable price. This folding hardtop convertible is smartly preserved inside and out, which makes this one of the most unique ways to arrive on the scene.

Lexus had already established its reputation for quality by the turn of the century. That's how they were able to showcase their engineering prowess while charging a premium price for this second-generation SC (it was the equivalent of a $100k car today when new.) It was designed from the start to be a hardtop convertible, and the inspiration is from nautical themes. That's why this has a profile of gentile waves - no matter if the top is up or down. It has the kind of intricate sheet metal that ages nicely and will certainly be a unique classic, which is also why this two-owner example shows the right signs of being cherished since day one. The original Millennium Silver Metallic paint still has a quality luster from Lexus' quality paint practices. This means it's always just a professional detail away from a showroom level of shine. The original alloy wheels are a very unique design that will never be replicated, so having them in this cut-above condition is a bonus. In fact, this SC430 has an overall impression that tells us it could easily be available for survivor status a few years down the road if you continue to keep it at this level of quality.

Inside is the soothing luxury you expect from the Lexus name, and since this is a young classic under 20 years, it has all the modern comfort features you could want. It starts with the beige leather that's exceptionally supple and clean. So you know no one left the aluminum folding roof down all day long. That's impressive because the top can stay down in just about any weather thanks to features like the heated seats and automatic A/C climate control. And we bet you're likely to leave this out to show off some of the features that would make a Mercedes SL jealous. For example, Lexus uses a rear polished wood on the steering wheel, dash, and center console. It is even used to cover the DVD navigation system when not in use. Other premium features include power windows, power locks, keyless entry, power seats, cruise control, and the AM/FM/CD Mark Levinson premium stereo. There are also plenty of safety features such as traction control, ABS, side airbags, and dual front airbags.

Under the hood is packed with its correct 4.3-liter V8 that has averaged 650 miles annually - yes, this car is that special. It's a 32-valve, DOHC motor with variable timing, which means you get the most out of this engine's 300 hp anytime you step on the gas. But this is a Lexus, and so you know it will be civil. In fact, this large V8 is borrowed from the LS flagship sedan, and we all know how quiet its reputation is. Just like the Mercedes SL, the Lexus SC is a solid luxury machine, but it also has a fun side on the road. This is thanks to features like the five-speed automatic transmission, speed-sensitive steering, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes.

The sale comes with good documentation with the window sticker and owner's manual. This Lexus appears to have lived an easy life thus far, which makes it the ideal car to collect now before it crosses the 20-year mark into full classic status. Call today!!!
