Lexus has revealed the LC Convertible Concept, an open-air take on the flagship sports car, ahead of its international debut at the Detroit motor show this week.
While yet to be confirmed for production, the LC Convertible Concept looks showroom-ready after its transformation into a model that promises uninterrupted sunshine and unlimited headroom.
Compared to its coupe sibling, the LC Convertible Concept sits 5mm lower, at 1340mm, but measures the same 4770mm in length and 1920mm wide with a 2870mm wheelbase.
However, the soft-top is visually distinguished beyond its A-pillars, with the LC Convertible Concept lacking B-pillars and featuring a reworked decklid due to its removable roof, plus unique 22-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the coupe’s four-seat layout carries over to the LC Convertible Concept alongside a 10.3-inch multimedia system and an 8.0-inch digital instrument cluster, while white leather upholstery with yellow stitching sets the two apart.
“This concept takes the unmistakable design of the LC coupe and reimagines it as a future convertible,” Lexus chief design Tadao Mori said. “It blends all the best aspects of the original coupe with the dynamic design of an open-air convertible.”
If the LC Convertible Concept becomes a production model, it will likely attract a hefty premium over its coupe counterpart, which is currently priced from $189,629 and $190,000 before on-road costs in V8 LC500 and hybrid LC500h forms.
