Which used Lexus SC sports should I buy?

There's only one to pick from. But, as you would expect from a car that cost £50,000 when new, it has a more-than decent level of comfort and equipment.

Eight-way adjustable seats, dual-zone climate control, touch-screen sat-nav and electric memory front seats are all standard. There's also an impressive stereo created by hi-fi expert Mark Levinson, that even adjusts itself when the roof goes down to provide a superior sound.

Later models got incremental revisions - with upgraded alloys and emissions reductions - but the differences were minimal. Non-metallic colours are less desirable; try to avoid flat red, but black examples are still sought after.
