Lexus LC Convertible concept

Lexus LC Convertible concept

Lexus hasn't revealed any technical details of the LC Convertible, though it's reasonable to assume that if it came to market it would utilise the same ten-speed gearbox and choice of 3.5-litre hybrid or 5.0-litre V8 powertrains. From the rake of the windshield to the smooth contours of the rear decklid that houses the convertible top, every line on the LC Convertible concept was drawn to evoke an emotional response. 22-inch wheels and a wide stance help there, but really it's testament to Lexus' designers original handiwork that the whole thing works so well. "This concept takes the unmistakable design of the LC coupe and reimagines it as a future convertible".

Yep, Lexus has sliced the roof from the LC coupe, precisely three years after it made its debut in Detroit.

The concept appears to be close to production form, suggesting Lexus may be feeling out public reaction before giving the auto a final green-light.

The basic dimensions of the LC concept appear virtually identical to those of the coupe, with a total length of 187.8 inches, a wheelbase of 113.0 inches, a width of 75.6 inches and a height of 52.8 inches. There's no mistaking which one Mori is referring to when he talks about how drivers would "hear its engine when you start it up and feel everything around you once on the road", however.

Much attention has been paid to the cabin, which is fitted with seats finished in white leather with yellow accents. Done properly, though, this LC could more than compensate.

Even if this concept is little more than an LC Coupe with its roof lopped off, the result is still very pretty.

What we do know is that an open top LC would fit with the coupe version's overall personality.
