2009 Lexus LX570 | new car review

2008 Lexus SC 430 | new car review

Lexus’ vision of a European sports car, the SC430 seems to plug on unabatedly. Its sublime curves, striking headlamps, the integrated spoiler at the back all combine to give the Lexus SC430 an athletic look – all muscle and no flab. This Coupe is a stunning car and pressing a…
