Very interesting, now this is what i am talking about!

Seems like its the new SC series. If you noticed on Lexus.com the SC series is no longer on the website. Cant be coincidence, maybe someone on here has an accurate date of when they removed it off the website? but i could have sworn earlier this year the SC was still on the website.

SC 430 was discontinued in 2010...its been off Lexus.com's site for some time now. SC 430 can be found under the CPO range on the website.

i was under the impression that the SC was dead. This LOOKS like an LFA type of car, but im sure hoping its a future thought for the IS series - which SHOULD be completely redesigned by 2013 from what i've read.

oh god, please not another super car that no one can afford. Please let it be something we can actually buy! LFA is nice, but honestly a waste of time and money from an enterprise perspective, 300k? what a fcken joke, seriously.

if it is a new ISF i hope it has real performance for 60k, cause the ISF right now is another Fcken joke!

can someone do a photoshop with these pics and change the colors to silver, white, black? i am assuming for silver and white you need to change the portions on the body to black or a darker tone to contrast the white or silver.

I think this car will look sexier with stronger contrast colors like black where the grey is present with a white body. Or leave the grey present with a black body. Very nice!
