Although Lexus doesn’t have many dedicated enthusiasts, most car enthusiasts are fans of this particular vehicle: the Lexus SC300, which was a rather sporty, rear-wheel-drive car Lexus sold in North America throughout the 1990s. What we have here is a surprisingly nice SC300 — a one-owner car with just 70,000 miles.
Before you ask, no, this SC300 isn’t equipped with a manual transmission — that’s the desirable enthusiast option that transforms these cars from "cool" to "very cool and hotly desired." But it’s still a special car, as it’s a bit of a time capsule: a 70,000-mile SC300 that’s been with just one owner for more than 25 years.
This SC300 is finished in black with a beige interior, and it really is one of the nicest Lexus models I’ve seen from this era in some time — indicating that it was supremely well kept. The Carfax report seems to prove this, indicating services throughout its life at Lexus of Greenwich in Connecticut and, indeed, one owner in Rye, New York, near Greenwich.
If you’re interested, you’re unlikely to find another SC300 like this — and it’s offered by European Motorcars in Middletown, Connecticut, for $11,996. That’s big money for a 1992 Lexus, but then again this is one of the nicest ones you’re likely to ever run across. Find a Lexus SC for sale
