Unlike many concepts presented by car manufacturers, this Lexus convertible seems very close to a production model. After all, it is built with the normal LC, a model that can be purchased at a Lexus dealer from 2017.
Under the hood, the concept would use the same engines as the rigid roof production model. So we're talking about a 5.0-liter V8 and a hybrid system that combines a 3.5-liter V6 and a 44.6-kW lithium-ion battery.
The convertible model that will be presented in Detroit is equipped with huge 22-inch wheels and a white paint in contrast with the dashboard covered in black leather.
For Tadao Mori, the chief designer of this concept, a possible production version of the LC convertible version is possible. [Une telle version] It would be exciting in many ways, "he says, adding that" combines all the best aspects of the original coupe with the dynamic design of a convertible ".
