|The Lexus SC series is a personal luxury coupe manufactured by the Toyota Motor Corporation under the Lexus brand and sold in Japan as the Toyota Soarer. The first generation, available as the SC 300 or SC 400 was in production from 1991 until July 7, 2000. A second-generation model, the SC 430, went into production in 2001. The first generation SC 300/SC 400 were assembled at Toyota's Higashifuji Technical Center in Motomatchi, Japan.
The Lexus SC is a front engine, rear-wheel drive design and was sold with either I6 or V8 engines.
The SC 300 and SC 400 were mid-sized coupes available in the United States with a 3.0 L inline 6 2JZ-GE(225 hp and 210 ft·lbf, SC 300) or a 4.0 L V8 1UZ-FE (250 hp and 260 ft·lbf, SC 400). In Japan, an additional engine choice was a 2.5 L twin-turbo inline 6, good for 276 hp on the Toyota Soarer 2.5GT-T/TL. The V8 1UZ-FE motor, also used in the LS 400, was reported to have cost over US$400,000,000 in research and development. In 1996, the SC400's engine design was upgraded to 260 hp from 250 hp. In 1998, both the SC300 and 400 were upgraded with VVT-i and thus the ratings were raised to 290 hp/300 ft·lbf of torque for the SC400 and 225 hp/220 ft·lbf of torque for the SC300. Tests conducted on the new engines showed an acceleration for the SC400 of 0-60 mph in 6.0 seconds, and for the SC300 an acceleration of 0-60 mph in 7.5 seconds.
