Sport Car — great overall sport car. great handling. powerful, fast, reliable. Handles well. Secure. Smooth. Not an intimidator but an assertive car. Real quality does not need to boast . Excellent gas mileage for a V8. Engine is tight and tireless at 150,000 plus mi.

Get One! — Love this car! This car is fast stock and with a little upgrades, amazing! The build is awesome with minimal repairs. I love the look and with a wide body kit, just awesome! Cost is affordable except when you have a heavy foot! This car is so fun to drive!

When I Pull Up At The Gas Station I Get Alot Of Compliments.... — I like how fast this car is and all the things you could do to make the horse power go up....the topspeed is already there so pretty much it's all on what you make of the car.....So if you like compliments by all means this could be one of the cars you might need in your life....

time is past but body still look good feel rear wheel really can't find some car like that

Cons

not to fast for somebody used to drive turbo before

25

Feel Like U Have Supra In Body Lexus And Sound From American V8 Corner Is Heavy Same Skyline 2 Rwd — Performance not bad - acceleration good need supercharge for v8, braking so far so good need big brake with drill and hole to cool down, handling front too heavy but full fuel tank help to balace Build Quality - has it needed repairs for suspension and limited slip differential Appearance - both interior and exterior styling like rear spoiler need big fender for wide wheel

My Sc400 — Good solid performance luxury car, electronics wear significintly with age unfortunatly, other then that awsome car. 250hp 260tq 4.3 v8. Its a heavy car, but still get up and goes. Asome for drifting. Lexus designed it very well. Know as the lexus version of the toyota supra.

Great car, timless design.

Cons

Front heavy, poor gas mileage.

Solid Design, Lasts. — Its a pretty fast car but auto transmission, very solid car; no shaking, engine noises, cost pf ownership sort of high, very fun car to drive, especially with all the underpowered 4 cylinders flooding the market. Braking is exceptional, car is front heavy but to counter this it is a rear wheel drive, acceleration is brisk from 0-60 just under 7 seconds,the responsiveness of the car is well above average, and the v8 bellow is great to hear. Has a great Nakamichi sound system with great bass response. Overall, I really enjoy this car as an everyday car and weekend car for longer trips.

Its Alright — bone stock 4.0l v8. Trying to make a drift car til funds got ruined. swap going in twin turbo supra 3.0l. Cost is cheap now a days. This car is a lot of fun to drive and is rear wheel drive.

fuel, finding parts.

Sexus — my ride is awesome, running a supercharged v8 it certainly packs a punch, i love taking on mountai races coz of the extra weight it makes it hug the road and doing smoke runs has never been so fun. also the leather interior make it a very comfortable ride and there is no shortage of gadgets to play with in the dash :), also a good way to learn japanese.
