Sex Appeal - Lexus
a car be sexy? If it's the new Lexus coupe,
the answer is yes. From its "come hither"
stance to its teasingly fast 300-horsepower
V-8, the new Lexus is hot to trot. Possessing
sex appeal also means stimulating on another
level, as well. The SC430 sets the heart pounding
as soon as the retractable hardtop is dropped
(which is a quick 25 seconds, by the way)
and the wind starts to swirl your hair. The
SC430 was created at Lexus' European design
center, and was inspired by the sights and
styles of the French Riviera, and we all know
what sizzles on the beaches in the summertime,
the Ford Thunderbird and Jaguar
X-Type were worthy competitors in this
segment, neither could match the Lexus' supple
leather seats or beautiful blonde wood accents
that blanket the dash, steering wheel and
center console. Sexy sometimes means being
fully stacked, and the Lexus SC430 comes with
everything except, well, it comes with everything!
For example, the SC is loaded with a navigation
system, Vehicle Skid Control system, high-end
Mark Levinson audio, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Sexy is being smart; sexy is being strong,
and sexy is being Lexus.
