Letting your hair down in a Lexus is about to get a lot easier. The Japanese luxury carmaker recently confirmed that it will be offering a convertible version of its flagship LC sports coupe “in the near future.”
The new Lexus LC convertible was highlighted during Britain’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in July. The brand showed off a prototype of the car wrapped up in black-and-white digital camouflage to give consumers a taste of what’s to come.
“Long, low and lean, the LC convertible will share the coupe’s athletic proportions, but project its own, distinct identity,” Lexus noted in a news release. The luxury brand went on to add that the convertible will bring “a sense of completeness” to the Lexus model lineup.
The Lexus LC convertible will be the first droptop available in the brand’s lineup since it stopped the production of the IS C in mid-2015. Before that, Lexus sold the now-discontinued SC convertible.
There’s not much information around this new convertible available at the moment, though Lexus has been hinting at this new model for years. Back in January, the premium brand previewed the new car with the LC Convertible Concept. It also showed off the 2014 LF-C2 concept with the idea of a convertible RC coupe.
Once the LC convertible becomes a reality, stay tuned for more information on how you can test-drive this exciting new model here at Lexus Downtown.
