MUSCAT — Lexus has continued its strong showing in the Japanese Super GT500 Championship, winning round three in Fuji Speedway, Japan. The Lexus Bandai Direzza SC430 pairing of Naoki Hattori and Peter Dumbreck took the chequered flag at the end of lap 110. Lexus has four SC430s in the GT500 series out of a field of 15 in the championship.
Lexus revolutionised the concept of open-top convertible when it first introduced the SC430. This combination of luxury coupe/hardtop convertible provides a wonderful balance of luxury coupe comfort and performance with a “one-touch” convertible experience that is unmatched by any other vehicle in its price range. This luxury car has since become an icon high-end luxury.
With rear-wheel drive and a 4.3-litre V8 that puts out 332hp, the Lexus SC 430 blends performance and agility with smooth luxury. With the hardtop raised, the SC430 isolates its occupants from noise and rough roads. Its engine and transmission are very smooth and the suspension handles swales, bumps and undulations superbly, far better than most cars.
This luxury convertible comes a four-sensor, four channel anti-lock braking system (ABS), vehicle stability control (VSC), electronic brake force distribution (EBD), traction control, and brake assist. There are intelligent safety systems keeping vigil all around you within the SC, while you floor the pedal and enjoy the road.
The vehicle’s intelligent sensors can actually sense a potentially dangerous situation, and initiate safety procedures in two ways. First, it intelligently intervenes to avert the danger.
By automatically compensating for lack of braking pressure or inadequate steering input. If the collision still looks inevitable, the vehicle deploys its second line of defence. A combination of airbags — including dual front airbags and front-seat mounted side impact airbags. And that’s not all, the SC’s GOA (global outstanding assessment) body structure and special crumple zones minimise intrusion into the occupant area, thereby, minimising chances of physical injury.
Inside, the SC is perfectly quiet and secure, perfect for two people dressed for an evening on the town. Its interior is trimmed in leather and a choice of rich woods.
