Lexus LC Convertible “Concept” Is Obviously Ready To Enter Production

Lexus has uncovered the LC Convertible Concept ahead of its world premiere that’s scheduled for the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, next Monday.

Said to have come to life as their design team was “exploring the brand’s evolution”, it’s described as “an LC in its most breathtaking form” and serves as a preview for the production model.

“This concept takes the unmistakable design of the LC Coupe and reimagines it as a future convertible”, said Chief Designer Tadao Mori. “It blends all the best aspects of the original Coupe with the dynamic design of an open-air convertible.”

At 4,770 mm (187.8 in) long, 1,920 mm (75.6 in) wide and 1,340 mm (52.8 in) tall, the LC Convertible is 10 mm (0.4 in) longer and sits 5 mm (0.2 in) lower than its fixed roof sibling. The wheelbase length has remained the same as the Coupe, at 2,870 mm (113 in).

The auto firm chose to keep the design of the car identical to the LC Coupe. However, there are a few special touches, such as the black exterior trim and new 22-inch rims, as well as white leather and yellow contrast stitching inside.

As for the folding soft top, this is stowed in a special compartment behind the seats. The boot space is likely a tad smaller as a result, but we don’t know by how much. Still, these details, and many more, will be announced in approximately three days, when the car will be on display at the event in Motor City.
