    There were three different outputs of the SC400. The '92-'96 I believe it was had 250 HP (I used to has a '93 SC400, and yes, it had 250 HP). The '96-'97 had 260 HP, and then the '98-'00 had 290 HP. I know my HP ratings are right, but I'm not sure if the exact years are right.
     
  4. Re: This page doesn't give acurate information about this car

    My car is a 93 V8 Limited GT, and it can do 174MPH and 0-60 in 6 seconds, where did you get the info which is posted at the top of the page as its totally rubbish.The origional was limited to 155MPH, but unlimited is what mine is. If you want to fill in all of those blanks go to lexusclub.co.uk for all the info. This car was made for the Japanese market, but then decided to try America - but the Japanese spec is far superior to the Americans and the Japs had more options available than the Americans. Mine is from Japan and is the dogs B******s, 260BHP (I think)and it can go 174MPH, faster than quite a few Porsche's, Ferrari's and several other supercars of its era, and now. Come on get the info right, this is most proberbly the best car ever produced, most reliable and superior car and deserves more.<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. Is 300 kicks ass

  7. Re: Is 300 kicks ass

    The Best Lexus Made Is The GS430. But No Japaniese Sports Car Made Has The Power Of A v12. Whats The Deal With That?
     
  8. Re: Is 300 kicks ass

    yeah, the GS430 is pretty tight lookin,' and i think it has a bit more power, but i still like the small, sleek look of the IS300.

    No, I don't really know what you're saying. I wasn't trained to read hieroglyphics.
     
  12. Re: Is 300 kicks ass

    is300 is an ok car. i've driven one and making quick turns sucks. and no way its the best lexus ever made. are you crazy? the sc430 is the tightest lexus car. and toyota and lexus are the same company dummies.
     
  13. Re: Is 300 kicks ass

    The IS300 is too cool. It should be on this site for gods sake. It's not really a supercar, but is an Audi A4 much better? Car and Driver ranked it #3 below the BMW 330i and Audi A4 and it would have done even better if it didn't have winter tires equipped at the time of testing. <!-- Signature -->

    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 -->

  19. Re: A GREAT DRIFTER

    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.
     
  20. Luxury

    This one good luxury car to roll in.<!-- Signature -->
     
  21. Re: Luxury

    I agree it looks wonderful and its a real fun car to drive. Its performance may not be EXCELLENT but it feels alot faster thatn it really is
     
  22. Re: Luxury

    I dont like the styling.<!-- Signature -->
     
  23. Too bad we didnt get the Toyota Soarer

    I wish we would have gotten the Toyota Soarer in North America (Same body but it had the engine of the Twin Turbo Supra (2JZGTE). It would be stupid fast and I prefer the looks of it to the Supra.<!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: This page doesn't give acurate information about this car

    I gotta say I find it extremly hard to believe that a stock V8 soarer got to 60 mils per hour in only 6 sexonds. Thats about 2 seconds faster than what they actually achieve. Were you running it down a hill or something?
     
  25. Re: This page doesn't give acurate information about this car

    It does sound a little fast. But I cant say as I havent actually driven one. Most figures i've seen ahve been in the 7 second range and 1/4 mile in low-mid 15's. Possibly it is a manual, as i think they are rare? how was the car tested? Alot of new car magazines test cars with two people in the car, (at least here in aus) maybe these figures are taken that way as well?
