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

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

Lexus has neglected to mention what powers the open-top LC show auto, though we'd expect the sonorous 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8 is under the bonnet given the badges aren't shrouded in blue. Otherwise it's a concept that looks like a sure thing so you can expect Lexus to put this into production soon. So far, it's only a show vehicle, and it is making its debut at the 2019 Detroit auto show. That said, Lexus brass seems to think the Lexus LC Convertible would be a good idea.

Clearly there's space in that rear deck for a roof to live, although there's no confirmation at this stage whether that will be a hard or fabric folding top. Based on our time in its coupe sibling, we'd prefer not to be assigned to those back seats. "It blends all the best aspects of the original coupe with the dynamic design of an open-air convertible". Crisp white leather trim abounds while yellow accent stitching adds a pop of color without distracting from the subtle elegance of the overall design. Being a concept vehicle, it rolls on outsized 22-inch wheels - although these days such a rim option is likely to survive into production. So, in 2008, was presented the concept Roadster Lexus LF-A in 2012 showed the spider on the basis of the serial coupe LFA; in 2014 appeared experienced convertible LF-C2.

A six-figure sum is nearly inevitable then, but so too is the 5.0-litre V8 lump if the chief designer's winking comments about a production version being "exhilarating in many different ways" is to be taken at face value. Between the hybrid V6 and the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8, we'd pick the latter.

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