There, there. It is a Lexus SC430.
Lexus owned by Toyota and Soarers were only sold in Japan under the Toyota badge. They were the Soarer 430SCV. So if JDM, its a Toyota, outside Japan, all the Soarers were sold under Lexus badge, specially the US. So it is a Lexus.

Oh, I didn't know that. Something tells me we should have a separate thread for this topic, i.e. about Toyota and Lexus and rebadging. It's a prevalent topic in many existing threads..

I was wondering if anyone can confirm this. I read an article on TOI (a while back though) that Mamta Mohandas has a Kawasaki 1000cc bike. No other details were mentioned. Is this true ?She's apparently into cars & bikes.

I can't imagine Mamta cruising around on a Kawasaki.

She is settled in B'lore. So can't accept or deny the news!
