Lexus has presented a cabrio version of the LC 500. It is only the third open car of the Japanese brand, which previously had the SC 430 on offer.

In contrast to its predecessors, the new Lexus LC 500 Convertible has a fabric convertible top. This can be opened and closed up to a speed of 50 kilometers per hour. This process takes fifteen seconds. Incidentally, closing takes a second longer.

The convertible is powered by a 477 hp V8 engine. The power source is linked to a ten-speed automatic transmission. It is not yet certain whether the model will also be available with the hybrid 500h powertrain.

The Lexus LC 500 Convertible is coming to the Netherlands in the summer of next year.
