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.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

A Thing Of Beauty — The only thing about my Lexus sc 400(Sasha)is that i noticed the driver side door panel is weak, ive asked other owners and they say the same thing.Other then that she's a beaut and purrrrs so soft like a kitten but takes off like a Lion.You can be standing next to her and wont even know she's running!

hot, chicks dig it...,

Cons

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.

Sc400 — 265 hp, accels fast, brakes really good, has great handling, real wide tires, traction control, ect switch lets you choose trans setting and engine setting, regular is for regular, and power makes the trans shift at high rpms. i love this car, dont like the mpgs though, not that good

It's My Dream Car In The Flesh — I've never owned a luxury vehicle. Granted, this is an older model, but it performs like brand new.

Pros

Strong engines/gearboxes. Great interiors and power and performance. Handles like a go-kart.

Cons

Needed a manual option in the V8's and more TT manuals. Also all needed to fitted with Torsen LSD's. Weight is also a slight problem, weighing in at 1680Kg.

Luxury Sports Coupe — Smooth car to drive, interior was and electronics were way a head of their time and reliable. Car performance was great with a throaty 4ltr V8 (1UZFE) and only got better with time. 1JZ-GTE also had amazing power and performance options. Handles extremly well witht the stock fitted Actie Air Bag Controlled Suspension, but fitted with aftermarket suspension improves ridginess and handling ability. Great car to drive and has no trouble turning 19's and going sideways.

Superb Look's, Loads Of Power, Reliable. — This was the best car I have ever owened. Superb looking, powerful and reliable. The 4 Litre v8 chucks out an incredible 280bhp as standard! 0-60 in 6 seconds! Comfortable well kitted out interia, digital dash, electric seats. Japanesse build quality and reliabilty. Was gutted when I sold it but was too expensive to run :(
