97 SC300 with 5spd... 120 made..

I guess if you're talking color as well it'd be an RSP 97 SC300 with factory 5spd...I think only 40(something) were built for the US.

Like everyone else said, 97 rsp 5 spd with or without moonroof.

Second most desirable is probably black on black 5 speed any year.

The 1997 RSP cars are rare, but as far as I know there are only 15 or so of those that have a black interior.

Can't say that I have ever seen a RSP on Black with a maunal.

1997 RSP with black interior and 5 speed. Must have sunroof because no one likes a luxury car with no sunroof.

I personally don't care for the RSP color but for rarity it would be, in this order: 1) 1997 5-speed RSP no moonroof, 2) 1997 5-speed RSP w/moonroof, 3) 1997 5-speed, 4) 98-00 SC400 VVT-i, and 5) any SC300 5-speed with or without a moonroof. Any of these with a black interior makes it a bit rare and more desirable.

I've gotta agree with the 97 5sp. First year for upgraded bumpers and sides last year for manual transmission.

97 5spd rsp sc300's sell for a lot.
Even the SC400's with RSP sell for quite a bit more than there compatriots. Rare color, looks great IMO, and that year was the year of the facelift.

If not a 97 5spd, the next most desirable would be 98-2000 SC400's, with the 2000 being the most valuable out of the 3 years.

I think there were less than 10 1997 SC300 5 spd rsp's, and only 120 5 speed 97's were made total

Just change the year and you can see what colors were offered that year.
