Unchanged from last year except for side mirrors that now incorporate turn signals, the 2009 Lexus SC 430 remains powered by a 4.3L near-silent V8 engine generating 288 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque with rear-wheel drive through a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control. EPA estimated fuel economy comes in at 16 mpg city/23 mpg hwy and 19 mpg for combined driving. The SC 430 is equipped with standard safety features, such as antilock brakes with brake assist, traction and stability control, front-seat side airbags and front-seat knee airbags. Lexus SC 430 photos and 360 views show off the sleek convertible's exterior and interior persona. The two-door convertible seats four passengers, transforming from hardtop luxury coupe to open-air convertible in less than 30 seconds. The 2009 Pebble Beach special edition, of which only 300 units will be available, features special badging, mercury metallic paint, a rear spoiler, special 18-inch wheels, illuminated scuff plates and other unique details.
