• Thoughtful in-cabin experience reflecting Lexus’ “Human Centred” philosophy

• Will debut in South Africa in 2020

The hardtop version of the Lexus LC 500 is subjectively a stunning car to look at, and now the luxury Japanese automaker has unveiled the convertible version at the 2019 Los Angeles motor show. The show runs from 22 November to 1 December.

The new LC 500 Convertible joins the coupe as aspirational halo models for the entire Lexus line-up.

Lexus South Africa says the LC 500 Convertible is scheduled to go on sale in 2020 and the local launch date will be confirmed.

The exterior of the LC artfully blends the coupe’s unique roof line with the character of a convertible, achieving beauty with the top open or closed. The interior design considers how details such as the vehicle’s tonneau cover and seating materials become part of the design language when viewed from the outside.

The new model follows the coupe’s ‘Exhilarating Performance’ driving signature, providing a sense of unity with nature and an exhilarating driving experience that can only be enjoyed with a convertible.

The interior body structure has optimal placement and shape of braces to yield high dynamic performance faithful to the driver’s intentions. And thanks to the car’s V8 engine, the LC 500 Convertible accelerates in a pleasantly linear manner says Lexus.

To further enhance the driving experience, the LC 500 Convertible comes equipped with neck heaters and a transparent wind deflector – supporting the leading comfort and quiet that is Lexus’ DNA.
