The Y33 generation Q45 isn't a bad looking executive sedan, and its chiseled features speak of a sporty nature that you won't find in the blob-styled Lexus LS. Regrettably, the multi-link front suspension and quick ration steering from the previous generation was tossed for a strut setup tuned for comfort. On the plus side, this thing should be great for soaking up the miles.
The Q45 (despite its optimistic badge numbers) is powered by a 4.1 liter VH41DE V8, that is rated for 266 horsepower and 278 ft-lbs of torque. The Q45 will take 7.5 seconds to reach 60 mph, which wasn't great for 1999, but what do you expect with a 4-speed automatic transmission geared for economy.
The inside of the Q45 is a nicely done combination of faux wood trim and plastics that have survived the years with minimal wear/tear. It would be tempting to remove the strange analog clock and original cassette player, but I'd leave them for the novelty.
