The SC430 has been since long branded a chick car and is counted in the league of other chick cars like the Porsche Boxter, Merc. SLK, BMW Z3, new VW Beetle to name a few. Please don't pounce on me since the issue of chick cars has been discussed to death on the form already and I too am of the opinion that the cars mentioned above indeed look good in the hands of chicks.
Peace

I dont know. I actually quite like the design of these. Not that elegant with the top down but still. It's a little different. And there are quite a handful in Mumbai as well.

no offense bro, but i agree with vw beetle and the sc430 being chick cars but not the rest,as most people driving boxters, slks and z3s here in u.s are men. and z3 just cannot come in that category as it was also used by pierce brosnan in golden eye,,now james bond wont use a chick car or would he?

Im surprised that not many people know about the Soarer

Nice car, very popular on the drifting scene. Good find!

Well, now that's a pricey 4Wheeler. I liked the oveall design and looks. It's very mascular, wide and lengthy. The wheels are fat enough to give the road grip.

You bet it does. The design engineers at Lexus must have been on 'crack' while on duty.

Default Spotted: Toyota Soarer in Pune

Spotted a maroon colored unregistered SC430/ Toyota Soarer in Sadhu Waswani Chowk near BMW Showroom this afternoon. I followed the car all the way from Sadhu Waswani chowk till the Sangam Bridge and thereafter i went ahead on the Sancheti Hospital Bridge where the car stopped in the COEP signal to go towards Wakdewadi.
I think this is the same car as spotted by Ali G and Speedy in Bombay.
The first pic was clicked by me near Shorab Hall (from the side) and the rest of the pictures were clicked by my friend while i was following the car on my bike. Sorry for the pics quality though.
