Traditional Lexus quality in a premium sports car; elegant interior; eye-catching exterior; quiet, smooth ride; very extensive standard equipment list.
The 2009 Lexus SC 430 is powered by an aluminum 4.3L DOHC 32-valve V8 engine producing 288 horsepower and 325 pound/feet of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control and continuously Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence (VVT-i). The Intuitive Powertrain Control works with the Electronic Throttle Control to help smooth out acceleration. The SC 430 meets Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle II (ULEV II) certification.
Standard safety features on the rear-wheel-drive SC 430 include traction and stability controls, ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, high-intensity discharge headlamps with washers, tire pressure monitor, front seat-mounted air bags, and front knee air bags. An Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) allows the headlights to follow the road or whatever is in front of the car, enhancing nighttime visibility in turns and curves
Also standard are 18-inch alloy wheels, adaptive headlights, navigation system with a tilt display and voice activation, leather upholstery, power/heated front seats with memory for the driver, 10-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, in-dash six-CD changer, Bluetooth, dual-zone climate control and genuine wood trim.
With so much being standard, the options list is quite short. These include run-flat tires, rear spoiler, wheel locks, cargo net, car cover and additional wheel choices. Returning for a sixth year is the Pebble Beach Edition, which comes with signature seats, doors, wheels and other unique details.
Very little is changed on the Lexus SC 430 for 2009, other than the turn signals are now integrated into the side mirrors. Variations on silver, white, black and champagne are available as exterior colors. Golden Almond Metallic joins the color palette. The 2009 Pebble Beach Edition ? only 360 will be available ? comes with a Smokey Granite Mica exterior, Camel/Ecru interior, monogrammed floor mats and unique 18-inch alloy wheels.
The 2009 Lexus SC 430 continues the Lexus tradition of luxury, class and performance. In the same league as the BMW 335i, the Jaguar XK8 and the Mercedes-Benz CLK550, the SC 430 transforms from hardtop coupe to open-air convertible in under 30 seconds. Engineered as a convertible from the beginning in 2002, the rigid structure uses a rear double-wishbone independent suspension to deliver incredible handling and smoothness. The 53/47 weight distribution also helps deliver optimal balance.
Standard equipment is so extensive that no optional extras are offered for the interior. Combined mileage (city and highway) is estimated at 19 mpg.
