2001 LEXUS SC430
The 2003 Lexus SC430 hardtop convertible makes the strongest statement yet about the passion for design and driving pleasure permeating from the Lexus brand. Call it the "passionate pursuit of perfection." Introduced in Spring 2001 the SC 430 quickly became one of the hottest-selling cars in the industry and has emerged as an aspirational car for many driving enthusiasts. A retractable hard-top transforms the Lexus SC430 from a 2+2 coupe into a convertible in less than 25 seconds. This design approach ends the compromise between the top-down driving pleasure that a convertible offers and the comfort and safety offered by a coupe.
