Whether you’re driving along a sun-soaked coastal road or over a dramatic Alpine pass, the new Lexus LC Convertible delivers an unmatched level of open top luxury and awesome V8 power.
Double the desire
The LC Convertible design team faced a double challenge: to create the world’s most beautiful convertible - both with the roof up and down.
A stunning design with the top up or down, featuring Lexus’ signature attention to detail. The soft-top roof provides a unique silhouette and sporty disposition befitting a convertible.
To ensure that the convertible version of the LC 500 retains a beautiful silhouette when the top is lowered, the automatic folding mechanism stores the top under an integrated Tonneau cover. The roof can be opened or closed in under 15 seconds and while the vehicle is travelling at up to 31 mph.
The 4-layer soft top has been designed to retain the flowing roof-line of the coupe, without the supporting frame visible through the fabric. Furthermore, the fabric of the roof has been carefully selected and manufactured to ensure optimal tension and no wrinkling, with improved sound insulation.
The body structure of the LC 500 Convertible was newly designed to achieve the same driving signature equal to the Coupe, while simultaneously offering both beautiful styling and sufficient luggage space.
The LC Convertible 5.0-litre V8 comes with automatic transmission as standard and gives the LC linear-yet-invigorating acceleration.
In order to make the LC 500 Convertible’s V8 more enjoyable when the top is down, a sound generator transmits sensual engine intake sounds through the dash panel, while an exhaust valve enhances the powerful engine sound.
The Lexus Safety System+ is available as standard. The features include:
•Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
•Pre Collision System (PCS)
•Automatic High Beam (AHB)
•Road Sign Assist (RSA)
•Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)
In order to create a space to feel with excitement of open-air driving without hindering conversation in the car, we focused on aerodynamics such as the belt-line and rear moulding. In combination with the transparent polycarbonate wind deflector, wind flow inside the car is suppressed and excellent quietness is achieved.
Active Noise Control (ANC), combined with sound insulation and absorption techniques, suppresses unwanted noises and unpleasant sound frequencies.
The Lexus Climate Concierge is used to automatically control air conditioning, seat heaters, neck heaters*, and steering wheel heater, all while considering whether the top is up or down - making the convertible version of the LC 500’s cabin comfortable for its passengers regardless of the roof up or down.
The interior features details such as gradating quilting and perforation pattern on the upper portion of the seats, as well as the “L” logo embossed on the back of headrests.
*Neck heaters are only available with semi-aniline leather, standard on Sport + and optional on LC 500.
