According to many car enthusiasts, this is the finest automobile ever manufactured. I could just say, Google it or look at any of the 20 or so YouTube videos spouting facts as to why that is the case, but the simple reason is that it was the first car Toyota manufactured to go up against the best Mercedes and BMW had to offer. In order to do that, they over engineered the car. It may appear large, and it certainly is by modern luxury car standards, but it was and still is one of the most aerodynamic cars ever built. This model has a coefficient of drag unmatched by any Corvette, Ferrari, Maserati, etc. That’s what happens when you hire the engineering firm that created the Japanese Bullet Trains. It wasn’t until 2018 that the Tesla S matched this car’s .026 CD. Automotive manufacturers around the world were envious when famed high-end audio designer Mark Levinson agreed to design a sound system for this car. The reason? It was the only car ever built that was quiet enough to meet his demanding standards. With seats copied from the first-class seating area of British Airways and interior wood trim and other design elements taken from the Ritz Carlton, it is indeed sumptuous, unbelievably comfortable and quiet. You likely have never experienced a car with a better air conditioning system. The front vents oscillate to even out the cabin temperature. It will literally freeze you out. Front and rear heated seats. The 290 hp 32 valve V8 provides enough power to move this beauty. When you consider that when this car was built 23 years ago it cost $65,000, it would cost nearly $140,000 in today’s dollars you realize that this was no cheap thing in its day.

I am the 2nd owner and it was well-loved by the first owner and more so in the 7 plus years it has been mine. Never smoked in. I have put less than 7,000 miles on it since December of 2020, since I began working from home full-time. The only reason I’m considering parting with this vehicle is that, between my wife’s car and my pickup truck, I have no use for it. I had the 180,000 mile timing service performed 10,000 miles early, so that expensive service means that there’s about 83,000 miles to go before that happens again. Nice Pirelli tires, good brakes, new battery and more. Is it perfect? No, but it’s never been wrecked and in this price range, you will be hard pressed to find a nicer car. I Scammers don’t even try. Also, this is not the Ultra Luxury with the refrigerator and reclining massage rear seats. So, if that is the 430 you want, this is not your car. However, this model is great for those who can do their own maintenance, because at its heart it is a Toyota! I will entertain best cash offer.
