About the SC

Initial concepts were created by the American Calty design team to convey an air of emotion and feeling, with no straight edges, the Lexus SC was deemed ‘influential. And was ultimately built at the Motormachi Toyota Plant in Aichi Japan.

On sale between the years 1991 and 2010, the Lexus SC was first and foremost a Grand Tourer with a front engine configuration and rear-wheel drive.

Seating four people, it was designed to compete with cars such as the BMW 8 Series, Buick Riviera, Mazda Eunos and the Acura Legend.

Before the SC, Lexus has no luxury coupes and so this model entered into a market segment that had previously been neglected by the Japanese automaker.

The first generation spanned nine years, an impressive length of time when compared to other generations of vehicles at the time.

2001 saw the second generation, two years after a successful unveiling at the 1999 Toyota Motor Show. This new car was a V8 convertible and was capable of achieving 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds.

A different tack was taken this time around, whereas the first generation was created as a grand tourer that could be purchased as a convertible, the 2nd generation was intentionally designed to be a convertible.

Two design teams were employed in this models design, bridging both Europe and Japan; following a company fact-finding trip to Cote d’Azur, notes were taken of the local architecture, harbors and scenery. The curves and lines of the vehicle are said to be indicative of the waves and yachts of the region.

Four years after the release of the second generation, Lexus updated the models, available in full leather interior, satellite navigation and 18-inch wheels it featured a hard top aluminum retractable roof that could fold away within just 25 seconds. Eventually, sales slowed due to the dwindling market and Lexus replaced the SC with the LF-LC which was hailed the ‘future luxury coupe.’
