Overall Great Sport Luxury Convertible — I have owned several of the SC430 when they were new. I bought this last one with 88K miles and I drives the same way I remembered when they were new. The Pearl White Paint is in excellent condition and the Saddle Interior is nearly flawless. I am very satisfied with this car as my daily driver.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Date Night Car — Handles and drives like a dream. Quite and classy yet powerful and solid. This car purrs like a kitten, corners well, have good turning radius and is easy to drive and maneuver. Lots of power, and a ton of class
