Lexus LC Convertible REVEALED ahead of Detroit debut

The Lexus LC Convertible Is Here To Fill Your Ears With N/A V8 Noise

The coupe won rave reviews when shown a few years ago.

The regular LC coupe was touted for looking nearly exactly like its concept counterpart, and Lexus doesn't really do concept vehicles that never make it into production, so it's pretty safe to assume that this "concept" will be hitting showrooms in the near future. It's not clear if Lexus has plans to add the 22-inch option for production, or if this is the one allowance made for the car's "concept" status. Would be? This LC convertible concept isexhilarating.

Without the roof of Lexus LC Convertible, it looks identical to coupe and when the droptop is stowed away it gives a stunning look thanks to steeply raked windshield. "It blends all the best aspects of the original coupe with the dynamic design of an open-air convertible". The Lexus LC Coupe normally ships with a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine good for 477 hp (356 kW).

See the LC Convertible at the Detroit auto show on 14 January. Wheelbase and width are the same (2 1 870 and 920 mm, respectively). That works out to about 0.4 inches longer, and 0.2 inches lower, than the hardtop. Inside, elegant white leather dramatically contrasts with yellow stitching and dark-colored trimmings. New Supra is coming to NAIAS. The vogue is very much for lightweight fabric electric tops, but Lexus has history with retractable hard tops (remember the SC of the early 2000s?) and a "retractable top housed under the rear deck lid" is how Lexus describes the roofing arrangements of its latest convertible.

In that case, what about its powertrain?

For more information about the LC, please visit https://lexus.jp/international/models/lc/. That's now a 5.0-liter V-8 making 471 horsepower, as well as a hybrid drivetrain making a combined 354 hp. The automaker doesn't officially admit that a production version is on the way, but the announcement says the vehicle points to the "future direction" for the lineup, suggesting something like this open-roofed machine could arrive at dealers at some point.

Further in the press release we read: "A production version of this concept would be exhilarating in many different ways".
