Lexus LC Convertible to make Detroit debut

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

Now, it's hinting it could do it again, with a convertible version of the sports coupe set to debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next week.

An open-air roadster that is an artful reflection of the LC coupe, the design goal of the Convertible concept was the expression of "ultimate beauty".

"A production version of this concept would be exhilarating in many different ways", said Tadao Mori, chief designer of the LC convertible concept.

What this all means is that Lexus is thinking about a convertible LC.

The short overhangs, enormous 22-inch wheels and wide stance remind the public of the performance potential of this concept auto.

Older and wiser Democrats don't care how many Twitter followers she has or how much ink she's getting. Yes, but she was on " 60 Minutes " and got to call Donald Trump a racist on national television.

Perhaps they'll lose the show car's 22-inch wheels (the production LC 500 Coupe comes on 21s), otherwise get a load of that yellow stitching on the white leather.

Lexus has neglected to mention what powers the open-top LC show vehicle, though we'd expect the sonorous 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8 is under the bonnet given the badges aren't shrouded in blue.

More than just a grand tourer, the strong exterior lines of the long, low and lean LC Convertible Concept reinforce its performance pedigree. Otherwise it's a concept that looks like a sure thing so you can expect Lexus to put this into production soon.

We're still a few days out from the debut of the reborn Toyota Supra but the cat is well and truly out of the bag thanks to a new video post from Toyota Mexico that reveals the vehicle from all angles. We last drove it in late 2017 - and with the naturally-aspirated V8 onboard, nearly liked it very much. Well, there are plenty of options, but it would seem more than likely Lexus would opt for its existing engine line-up in the LC Coupe.

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