Limited-edition of Lexus SC 430 made its
debut at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
Lexus debut the 2008 Lexus SC 430
Pebble Beach Edition retractable hardtop convertible to
commemorate its on-going partnership with Pebble Beach Company.
With a limited production of 360 vehicles, the fifth
special-edition Lexus SC will be unveiled at the Pebble Beach
Concours d'Elegance Lexus Fashion Preview on Aug. 17.
The unique exterior design of the SC
430 is complemented by an elegant exterior/interior color
combination that will be exclusive to the Pebble Beach edition
SC. This special SC will feature a Smoky Granite Mica exterior
paint combined with an exclusive two-tone Camel and Ecru leather
trim interior and Espresso Bird-eye maple wood trim.
Additional styling cues unique to the
Pebble Beach SC include special-edition brushed chrome badging
on the front fenders and center console and an Ecru Pebble Beach
logo embroidered on Camel carpeted floor mats. The Pebble Beach
SC will also feature White illuminated scuff plates, a sleek
rear spoiler and aggressive 18-inch six-spoke chrome wheels
equipped on all-season or summer run-flat tires.
In addition to its elegant styling, the Lexus
SC 430 hardtop convertible benefits from its ability to hide the roof
within the confines of its trunk in a mere 25 seconds, while still
maintaining enough room for luggage. All without latches, catches, snaps
or covers. And when the top is up, it defies traditional convertible
logic by remaining solid, secure and weatherproof.
The rear-wheel drive SC 430 is powered by a
288-horsepower, DOHC, 4.3-liter V8 engine with Variable Valve Timing
with intelligence (VVT-i).
The aggressive V8 is mated to a six-speed
sequential-shift ECT-i transmission to achieve a 0-60 time of 5.8
seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 149 mph. In addition
to its impressive performance, the SC is certified as an Ultra-Low
Emissions Vehicle II.
The SC features a number of technologies
designed to enhance driver visibility including an Adaptive Front
lighting System headlights, which help better illuminate a turn as the
driver steers into it. The SC also includes daytime running lights, fog
lamps and projector High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights.
Dynamic handling is accomplished with standard
features that include an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic
Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist, traction control (TRAC)
and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC).
Every SC 430 comes standard-quipped with a Mark
Levinson® Premium Sound System. This extraordinary system has been
configured to self-optimize performance for top-up or top-down driving.
Designed by one of the audio field's legendary innovative brands, the SC
430's system uses a seven-channel DSP 240-watt amplifier and nine
strategically located speakers to turn the SCs interior into a private
concert hall. System equalization automatically adjusts when the roof is
lowered to compensate for the changed acoustics and ambient noise
levels, and it returns to its original levels when the roof is raised.
The 2008 Lexus SC Pebble Beach Edition will be
available for purchase in late August.
