Lexus made its debut in 1989 at the Detroit Auto Show with its LS 400, setting the stage for its commitment to comfort, luxury, and performance. This stunning vehicle featured a powerful 250 horsepower V8 engine and a beautifully spacious design that quickly captivated car enthusiasts. In fact, it became a massive success, remaining the top-selling luxury sedan for all but two years over a 17-year period, as reported by Autoblog in 2006.
However, Lexus aimed to expand its success into the world of coupes, leading to the creation of the iconic SC400. In 1987, California’s Calty Research and Design embarked on this endeavor, recognizing the American market’s passion for coupes. While the SC400 shared the LS 400’s engine, it boasted a distinct and distinctive design. Erwin Lui, commissioned by Calty, took an unconventional approach to designing the vehicle, using plaster-filled balloons to shape its form. The end result, as Liu described to Popular Science in 1991, was a unique contour dubbed the “fender theme,” visible throughout the car’s body.
