Looks like a regular GS430 with a Sport Design swapped interior and a few L-Tuned parts.

that is sweet! Would be 100% perfect with black-wood against the saddle.

Tastefully done, just begging for some coils though...

Not bad at all for a car with 180k. Had good power and handled well. Seller has some tasteful mods, although the int/ext. color combo is not to my taste, but was in good condition. Everything works. I'd give it a strong 7.5-8 out of 10. Seller is a really nice guy.

I noticed it was a fraud as soon as I looked at the color of the car and steering wheel.

Anyone know where this car end up ? Maybe someone from here pick it up. It was a silver GS430 Sportdesign conversion with saddle interior. It had very nice mods, L-tuned sides, TTE front lip, and SD badging. Can't seem to find any pictures of it anywhere.

I don't like FRAUD cars.. its just a GS430.. I don't understand why all the hoopraa on the Sports design, the GS430 came more equipped than the Sportsdesign.. the only thing Sportdesing offer is the one extra ext paint (cars came in white/blk and carbon), saddle interior and some badging, it didn't even have 17" wheels or rear spoiler and that's a Sports design? Its like the 2000 GS400 Platinum edition, it has less parts on it than a regular GS400 but its a "Special model" (Not sure what Lexus was trying to pull here - Less is More philosophy)

Tell me how you really feel! Lol. I understand where your coming from. I think the SD model was just something to try to improve sales on the 300. Kinda like what Lexus is doing now putting F-sport on EVERYTHING

But this car was a little different/rare. I was looking for more pictures to see how the Saddle interior looks on a silver GS. I think this car was built with mods that the owner liked. Not as a selling tactic. I love my silver GS430 and saddle interior so just wanted to get a picture of what it looks like.

I want to see this car too, I had the same idea to convert to full SD and Saddle interior (for me everything else is left stock) whenever I get a chance to buy a stock/untouched Silver 05 430.
