Lexus SC430 Convertible (2005-2010)

The Lexus SC430 is an alternative car in the luxury convertible sector. It features a folding metal roof and suffers from this with slightly awkward styling. Build quality of course is first class and the effortlessly powerful, silky smooth V8 helps the Lexus SC430 glide along. Unfortunately, the suspension copes less well with bumpy roads and is sedate rather than sporting on smooth ones. Still a very pleasurable method of standing out from the crowd. Rumours suggest this car will not be replaced when it is eventually discontinued although Lexus have been playing with a high-performance roadster concept.

Phased out in 2010.
