    but then it wouldn't be an sc400... the sc300 has the 2JZ-GE(N/A motor) sadly, the 2JZ-GTE(turbo motor) is only available in the japanese toyota soarer.. <!-- Signature -->

  6. In Japan the Soarers cam with the 4.0, 3.0 (same as US lexus SC series) and 2.5TT (1JZGTE only sold in Japan), they never came with the Supra 2JZGTE, although that being said both the twin turbo engines are very very similar. I know coz I have a twin turbo soarer/lexus in Australia, and it's quite a nice car. Privately imported it from Japan. Quick, lost of luxury and nice looks (apart from the back with looks like a camry) BPU does alot to the cars performance. With mild upgrades my car does 13.5 over the 1/4, not bad for a 4000+ lbs car (sterio/dvd/subs/amps etc.., 19" rims add to the weight).

    A similar supra would still kill it though.
     
  7. Nice car!!!!!!!!!! do bad the new one looks like shit.
     
  8. THis, a drifter??? I don't think so, this is a heavy luxury cruiser. I've never seen a soarer drifter before, not that you couldn't, but there are many better cars to choose from.
     
  9. I also in Australia. I'm thinking of getting a Soarer / SC400 in a few years time when i finish uni. What are they like in terms of reliability, and costs of parts? I know toyotas are generally hard to fault in this respect, but being imported may shoot up part costs. I'm sure parets would be far cheaper then that of an Audi A3 (another of my considerations for that time). Also, what type of fuel economy do you get?

    Thanx !!
