The convertible version of the Lexus LC 500 flagship coupe will make its European debut on March 3 at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show.

The exterior styling is based on that of the LC coupe. The soft-top roof provides a unique silhouette and sporty look. The line of the rear trunk lid has been lifted and widened to create a dynamic side view and emphasise the low-and-wide stance.

To ensure that the convertible version of the LC 500 retains a beautiful silhouette when the top is lowered, the automatic folding mechanism stores the top under an integrated tonneau cover. Because the designers incorporated a beltline that kicks up at the end of the doors, the vehicle’s profile is characterised by a body that wraps around the cabin.

The 4-layer soft top has been designed to retain the flowing roofline of the coupe, without the supporting frame visible through the fabric. The roof can be opened or closed while the vehicle is traveling at up to 50 km/h, and an animation display within the instrument gauges allows the driver to easily monitor the top’s operation progress.

On the inside, the seats get gradating quilting and perforation pattern on the upper portion, as well as the “L" logo embossed on the back of headrests.

The Lexus LC 500 Convertible is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine, mated to the DirectShift-10 automatic transmission.

Lexus is developing integrated motor control technology for advanced posture control and other electrification technologies to further evolve driving pleasure, and to fundamentally transform the essence of luxury vehicles of the future. To make that happen, Lexus is drawing on the lessons learned developing the core technologies found in Lexus’ popular range of self-charging hybrids, including battery management, power control modules, and electric motors.

The LC line-up is representative of Lexus’ evolution towards becoming a luxury lifestyle brand, providing driving pleasure and excitement to enrich customers’ lifestyles. It is scheduled to go on sale in summer 2020.
