Lexus has confirmed it will produce the LC Convertible, debuting a camouflaged pre-production prototype at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Timing and specification of the LC Convertible is still yet to be announced, though we’d say the new model isn’t far off.
“It will broaden the LC line-up and bring a sense of a completeness to the brand's flagship models,” the company said in its press release.
“The convertible version of the flagship LC sports coupe will enhance the presence of Lexus as a luxury lifestyle brand.”
A near production-ready prototype (pictured) made its ‘dynamic debut’ at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, covered in a QR code wrap which the company calls “digital camouflage”.
Design-wise there’s no surprises, looking very much like the concept that debuted at the Detroit motor show in January – basically the LC coupe sans roof.
Speaking of the roof, it’s likely Lexus will employ a folding fabric top as opposed to a heavier metal one, which should minimise the impact on the vehicle’s dynamics and luggage capacity.
Lexus Australia’s CEO, Scott Thompson, said the LC Convertible would be a welcome addition to the local range.
“We are very keen to secure this stunning new convertible for Australia now that production has been confirmed,” he said.
