Lexus LC Convertible Gets The Green Light!

Lexus LC Convertible prototype

"Lexus is honoured to join this festival, and I could not be happier to unveil this prototype model of the LC convertible at the same venue where the LC coupe made its debut in 2016". The Japanese firm sent a pre-production prototype to the Goodwood Festival of Speed to show enthusiasts what its next drop-top is capable of.

The LC Convertible concept Lexus unveiled during the 2019 Detroit auto show is well on its way to production. Model up the hill under the control of a professional racer nick Cassidy, who took part in the championship of Japan Super GT500.

Koji Sato, Lexus's global executive VP said during the event that Goodwood Festival of Speed celebrates the history and culture of the automobile and serves as gathering place for the some of the history's most notable cars and drivers. Hopefully we speak for a few by saying the sooner the better, Lexus.


Toyota's luxury brand will announce the exact unveiling date, market launch and full specs in due course. Long low and lean, the LC convertible shares the coupe's athletic proportions, but looks even more striking without a roof. It is expected that the new convertible will get LC 5.0-liter "aspirated" V8 power 471 HP or a 3.5-liter V6 with 354 HP return, which was borrowed from the coupe.

For now information is scant, but we'd guess the LC Convertible will be available with the same powertrains as the regular LC.
