Lexus has given the green light on the production of the Lexus LC Convertible and the Japanese luxury carmaker has shown a working prototype at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed (FoS).
Despite cladded in a unique QR code themed camouflage, it would seem that the LC Convertible will look exactly like the concept car – just like its coupe twin when it first debut. The prototype showed a little more detail not seen on the concept such as a wind deflector and the lack of rear seats. Cues such as the prominent spindle grille and cascading LED taillamps have been retained.
We have yet to see whether the passengers of the LC Convertible will be sheltered with a hard top or fabric roof, but the latter is more likely. This is taking into account that a folding hardtop mechanism will incur a more serious weight penalty and packaging reasons.
The LC Convertible is expected to share the same powertrain options as the Coupe, a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 with 470 hp and 540 Nm as well as a 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V6 Lexus Multi Stage Hybrid System dishing out a combined output of 354 hp.
