Carried over from 2007, this sleek, low-profile two-door Convertible is powered by a 4.3-liter V8 engine that generates 288 horses linked to a six-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. It comes with a convenient power-retractable hardtop and offers seating for up to four passengers. Luxury amenities include auto climate control, cruise, keyless entry, power controls, navigation, heated lumbar seats with memory, a trip computer and upgraded audio.

Aside from a revised wheel design in the Pebble Beach Special Edition, very little changed on the Lexus SC 430 retractable hardtop for 2008. Saddle interior trim is no longer available and Chardonnay Pearl paint has been replaced by Golden Almond Metallic. Pricing remains the same as the 2007 model.
Handsome looks; well-designed interior; loads of standard luxury equipment; pleasing powertrain.
The 2008 Lexus SC 430 continues to exude luxury and class, its refined good looks still turn heads at the country club, and its smooth 4.3L V8 is as impressive as ever. The list of standard equipment is extensive, and much longer than most of its competitors. Reliability has been extremely high for the SC since its 2002 redesign.
