The Lexus LC Convertible Concept in Photos

We'd be doubtful, if it wasn't for the absence of a compelling cabrio in Lexus' current line-up, and indeed the automaker's track record in taking concept cars and building production cars out of them. So far, it's only a show vehicle, and it is making its debut at the 2019 Detroit auto show. The design is pretty much what you'd expect from an LC without a roof, meaning it's still painfully pretty. Lexus has revealed the new model ahead of its public debut at Detroit, and, while you still have to make your peace with that grille, it does look stupendously moreish from many angles.

At 4770mm long, 1920mm wide and 1340mm tall with a 2870mm wheelbase, the Convertible is identical in size to the Coupe in all directions bar height (-5mm). Gone is the hard roof, replaced by a convertible top that retracts behind the rear seats.

Lexus is offering some strong hints the convertible could be geared for production. For instance, there is black exterior trim and new 22 inch rims along with white leather and yellow contrast stitching.

After the absolute surprise that Lexus gave the automotive world three years ago, showing the LC Coupe in Detroit, the brand does the same thing all over again, showing the Lexus LC Convertible Concept at this year's Detroit Auto Show.

We will discover the truth in due course... and also what engine, V8 or hybrid, the convertible will use.

"A production version of this concept would be exhilarating in many different ways".

"It would engage the senses in a way that is unique and exciting every time you got behind the wheel", he said, describing the stunning open-air roadster as an expression of ultimate beauty.

Lexus has neglected to mention what powers the open-top LC show vehicle, though we'd expect the sonorous 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8 is under the bonnet given the badges aren't shrouded in blue.
