If U Like Luxery But Still Want To Be Sporty This Car Is A Must — sticker price is $62k in 1997. only 2048 made. premium fuel only. in 1997 they changed the body style a little to make it more modernized. has real 23k gold badges, antenna trim, and muffler tips that got refurbished at Lexus in the kings auto mall. need i say more?

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

Pros: sporty, sexy and turns heads

Cons: if i get a scratch the minimum to fix it is $1k (source woods collision center)

Kick Asssss — Its a V8 - 4 lt Monster. Being a Lexus, its throws all the goodies at you while the engine thumps enough power to fool the speed cams. The Max I have clocked is 183 kmph. But it can go till 280 kmph. Cant wait to give it a try without getting fined.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Brand

Cons: Fuel Economy

The Apex Of Car Styling — I bought this car only a few months ago, but I've been obsessing about it for years. I love almost everything about it from its timeless styling to its quality. One drawback is its somewhat average power (260 HP). It's fast, but not rediculously fast (0-60 in just under 7 sec). Its a luxury coupe, not entirely a sports car. If you are buying this car for performance, get ready to mod. Then again, most car enthusaists like myself enjoy modding so its no problem for us.

Pros: timeless design, built VERY well, smooth engine and transmission

Cons: Winter performance is pretty bad, but that should be expected from a RWD coupe.

The Perfect Blend Of Sports And Luxury, Perfect For The Refined Enthusiast... — The perfect blend of sports and luxury, perfect for the refined enthusiast... This car, as many other Lexus', is equipped with virtually every ammenity standard. It both looks and performs near perfect, and for the amount of options, luxury, performance and styling you get when you purchase this vehicle, the price cannot be beat. The power, tele-scoping, tilt steering, and the stock stereo are just two of the fine points that will remind you every day that you are driving a Lexus.

Miles Driven per Year:20

Pros: everything

Cons: Gas mileage could be better, considerind gas was only a dollar a gallon when it came out, the mpg is easily forgiveable.
