Coming equipped with a power-retractable hardtop, this sleekly styled rear-drive roadster continues for 2005 with only minor updates. The smallest Lexus is nonetheless powered by the automaker's largest passenger-car engine, a muscular 4.3-liter V-8 that generates a full 300-horsepower and drives the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel disc power anti-lock brakes, traction control, Vehicle Skid Control, and 18-inch alloy wheels and Z-rated tires help contribute to the SC 430's well-balanced handling characteristics. A long list of features includes front-side airbags dual-zone automatic air conditioning, a premium Mark Levinson audio system, a navigation system, tire-pressure monitor, a power tilt/telescope leather wrapped wood trimmed steering wheel, and heated power seats.
