(from Lexus Press
Release) Lexus will debut the 2008 Lexus SC 430 Pebble
Beach Edition retractable hardtop convertible to commemorate its
on-going partnership with Pebble Beach Company. With a limited
production of 360 vehicles, the fifth special-edition Lexus SC will
be unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Lexus Fashion
Preview on Aug. 17.
The unique exterior design of the SC 430 is complemented by an
elegant exterior/interior color combination that will be exclusive
to the Pebble Beach edition SC. This special SC will feature a Smoky
Granite Mica exterior paint combined with an exclusive two-tone
Camel and Ecru leather trim interior and Espresso Bird-eye maple
wood trim. Additional styling cues unique to the Pebble Beach
SC include special-edition brushed chrome badging on the front
fenders and center console and an Ecru Pebble Beach logo embroidered
on Camel carpeted floor mats. The Pebble Beach SC will also feature
White illuminated scuff plates, a sleek rear spoiler and aggressive
18-inch six-spoke chrome wheels equipped on all-season or summer
In addition to its elegant styling, the Lexus SC 430 hardtop
convertible benefits from its ability to hide the roof within the
confines of its trunk in a mere 25 seconds, while still maintaining
enough room for luggage. All without latches, catches, snaps or
covers. And when the top is up, it defies traditional convertible
logic by remaining solid, secure and weatherproof.
The rear-wheel drive SC 430 is powered by a 288-horsepower, DOHC,
4.3-liter V8 engine with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i).
The aggressive V8 is mated to a six-speed sequential-shift ECT-i
transmission to achieve a 0-60 time of 5.8 seconds and an
electronically limited top speed of 149 mph. In addition to its
impressive performance, the SC is certified as an Ultra-Low
Emissions Vehicle II.
The SC features a number of technologies designed to enhance driver
visibility including an Adaptive Front lighting System headlights,
which help better illuminate a turn as the driver steers into it.
The SC also includes daytime running lights, fog lamps and projector
High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights.
Dynamic handling is accomplished with standard features that include
an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution
(EBD), Brake Assist, traction control (TRAC) and Vehicle Stability
Every SC 430 comes standard-quipped with a Mark Levinson Premium
Sound System. This extraordinary system has been configured to
self-optimize performance for top-up or top-down driving. Designed
by one of the audio field's legendary innovative brands, the SC
430's system uses a seven-channel DSP 240-watt amplifier and nine
strategically located speakers to turn the SCs interior into a
private concert hall. System equalization automatically adjusts when
the roof is lowered to compensate for the changed acoustics and
ambient noise levels, and it returns to its original levels when the
roof is raised.
The 2008 Lexus SC Pebble Beach Edition will be available for
purchase in late August.
