This was fast by 2003 standards. The LC500 however isn't fast by today's standards, whether it be the hybrid or gas version

Two different versions of power? Or is it US version vs Japan/Europe?

Added hint "304 PS". When two cars appear identical on first glance, there needs to be a hint to differentiate them in places like the make/model dropdown, where, otherwise you would see two identical choices - Lexus SC430 and Lexus SC430.

Hints, as you know, are either power in form of "XXX PS" or chassis designation "E46" or generation count (where chassis designation is not the primary way how people recognize different generations) "Mk XXX".

There are some cases where other type of hints can be used also.
