Lexus clips roof off hot coupe for LC Convertible Concept

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

Japanese luxury auto manufacturer Lexus will come to the Detroit Motor Show with a convertible concept based on its LC model.

Here's a first look.

The concept's chief designer, Tadao Mori, said: "This concept takes the unmistakeable design of the LC coupe and reimagines it as a future convertible".

Would Lexus just leave this as a concept and not field a production version?

The LC Convertible Concept is a smidge longer, but slightly lower than the LC coupe. The design is pretty much what you'd expect from an LC without a roof, meaning it's still painfully pretty. They're still present, too, Lexus insisting that the LC Convertible Concept could still accommodate four.

The dynamic shape evolved naturally from the original LC design, yet stands on its own with a unique identity. "It blends uniquely Japanese aesthetics with the promise of sensory satisfaction that only a convertible can provide". The Lexus LC 500 sticks with the services of the company's 5.0-litre V8 with a Yamaha designed head, titanium valves, some hot camshafts, and an obsession with the rev limiter. Yes, there's every chance this model will make it through to production.

Even if this concept is little more than an LC Coupe with its roof lopped off, the result is still very pretty.

Lexus clearly expects the vehicle to be a performance model, with the Detroit concept displayed on 22-inch wheels.

GM is aiming to transform Cadillac into its lead EV brand to counter not only Tesla but also a throng of electric cars being developed by Germany's luxury brands. The evolution of Lexus is reflected in the progressive designs of its new vehicles.
