The Lexus LC 500 sports car has gone topless and it's coming to seduce you in 2020!
The V8-powered Lexus LC 500 coupe has been shown in the convertible form at the LA Motor Show and it looks rather appealing, don’t you think?
We drove the LC 500 coupe at its local launch in 2017 and it’s an impressive machine overall. Powered by a 5.0-litre V8 engine and paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, the rear-wheel-drive LC 500 Convertible offers 351 kW and 539 Nm of torque.
Lexus has stiffened the chassis by adding and relocating various structural braces and the suspension has also been reworked to enhance the LC 500 Convertible’s ride and handling performance.
The LC 500 Convertible features a soft-top roof design with a folding mechanism that incorporates a tonneau cover to neatly store the roof. The soft-top roof can be opened and closed in about 15 and 16 seconds respectively at speeds up to 50 kph.
The images you see here is of the LC 500 Convertible Inspiration Series of which only 100 units are offered worldwide.
South African availability has yet to be confirmed.
