â€¢ This year 1995 Lexus With the SC400, we’re seriously considering a new everyday driver.
â€¢ Not only does it have a silky 4.0-liter V-8 and a comfortable ride, the graceful styling hasn’t aged a day in the nearly 30 years since it rolled off the yard.
â€¢ For example, this well-cared-for example has almost 120,000 miles, the auction with no reserve is over bring followers until Thursday, 26.01.
This 1995 Lexus SC400 up for auction at Bring a Trailer gets us thinking about what it takes for a work to qualify as art. Clearly the mona lisa makes the cut, and nobody who saw Starry Night would argue it doesn’t make the cut – but what about a V-8 sports coupe? Certainly the sleek lines of the SC400, because the car has utility? While performance lags behind modern cars, the SC400’s superb styling looks just as good today as it did when it was first introduced in 1992. We’re not art critics here, but we have strong opinions on automotive styling – and this 1995 SC400 does it us considering our next daily driver.
The coupe for sale on BaT now comes in a boring beige option, but even that isn’t enough to cloud our thoughts on this car. He spent most of his life in Virginia and was sold to the current owner in June 2022 for $7,400 for Bring a Trailer. The 4.0-liter 1UZ-FE V8 was rated at 250 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque when new. The car has done almost 120,000 miles and the oil change was done in preparation for sale.
It’s not just an eye catcher; It’s fun to drive and performed impressively for its time. The name “Sports Coupé” says it all. Almost all new cars today can put up better numbers, but the 6.7-second take-off to 60 mph and 145 mph top speed are more than reasonable performance for a daily driver. When we first tested the SC in 1991, we recorded 0.86g of lateral grip. The modern Hankook Ventus V2 tires fitted in April 2022 would likely add to the already impressive grip.
In terms of amenities, the cabin features heated and power-adjustable front seats upholstered in beige leather, while bird’s-eye maple wood trim accents the dashboard and door panels. Automatic climate control, cruise control, electrical accessories and a trunk-mounted Nakamichi premium audio system with 12-disc CD changer round out the equipment. The listing refers to paint defects that can be seen up close. They may ruin this car’s shot at any future concours, but they do little to detract from its overall beauty.
