The Sc300 and Sc400 Chassis have been a staple in the car community for many years. With the production of these cars starting in 1991 up until 2000, the aftermarket support for these cars has been nothing short of plentiful. With exterior designing by the American based Calty Design Research, the SC300 was also produced alongside its twin, the Toyota Soarer, for the domestic Japanese market. The SC300 is powered by the 3.0 liter inline 6 2JZGE engine pushing 225hp to the rear wheels. The SC300 is also the first model with a manual transmission offered in a Lexus. The performance of the SC300 was a well-kept secret being used as a test bed for the coming Mk4 Supra. As for the SC400, this two-door rear wheel drive luxury coupe comes with a V8, 290hp, and Lexus quality. This is the hot luxury coupe that gave Lexus another solid win in the Luxury coupe market. The 1UZ V8 in the LS400 is now in a sporty coupe that delivers a smooth ride from the well-built chassis.
Some may call it a bargain Supra, with luxury interior and looks, the SC300 & SC400 (Toyota Soarer) has been a staple in the JDM automotive community. The Lexus SC Chassis has been able to be competitive in all types of motorsports, Drifting, Road Racing, Drag Racing, and even Time Attack.
