Lexus LC Convertible Concept is likely headed for production

The Lexus LC Convertible Is Here To Fill Your Ears With N/A V8 Noise Behold, the rather lovely Lexus LC Convertible

The Lexus LC500 is one of the few remaining cars keeping the naturally-aspirated V8 flame going.

The LC Convertible Concept may edge ahead of it, though. It rides on 22-inch wheels that look fantastic, but that will probably be dropped on the way to actual production in favour of 20- or 21-inch units. Lexus LC Convertible Concept is an amalgamation of best aspect of LC Coupe and dynamic design of open-air convertible. So we're excited by the prospect of the vehicle you see above, which Lexus will officially unveil in just a few days at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. The genesis if it came from design team who were looking for exploring Lexus's brand evolution and also serves as a preview for production model. In fact, it's one of the better coupe-to-convertible progressions we've seen of late-though full praise for the look may need to be held until we've seen the auto with the top up.

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. Crisp white leather trim abounds while yellow accent stitching adds a pop of color without distracting from the subtle elegance of the overall design.

'A production version of this concept would be exhilarating in many different ways'. "It would engage the senses in a way that is unique and exciting every time you get behind the wheel", said Mori-san.
