Lexus is at it again. Following its own routine of frequent updates, the Japanese company has revealed its fifth Lexus SC 430 Pebble Beach limited edition convertible. Quite predictably, the vehicle doesn’t differ much from the previous iterations only featuring a new paint job, new rims and some other minor enhancements over the base model.

Limited to only 360 copies, the refreshed SC 430 will be available in Smoky Granite Mica exterior paint combined with Camel & Ecru leather interior and mixed with Espresso Birdseye maple trim.

Equipped with a 288 hp, DOHC, VVT-I, 4.3-liter V8, mated to a six-speed sequential-shift ECT-i transmission, the Lexus takes only 5.8 seconds to accelerate from zero to 60 mph and reaches an electronically limited top speed of 149 mph (238 km/h).

The limited edition Lexus SC 430 sports 18-inch six-spoke chrome wheels equipped with either all-season or summer run-flat tires, and takes only about 25 seconds to fold its roof into the trunk.

Inside, the 2008 Lexus SC 430 Pebble Beach features special-edition brushed chrome badging on the center console, Camel carpeted floor mats with an Ecru Pebble Beach logo and a Mark Levinson Premium Sound System with a seven-channel DSP 240-watt amplifier and nine “strategically located” speakers.

The SC 430 Pebble Beach will be available in late August at a price not yet specified.
