Detroit LIVE: Lexus LC Convertible Conceptby Justin King
The concept hints at a shift in the LC flagship's design language.
Lexus has revealed the LC Convertible Concept, scheduled to make its first public appearance next week in Detroit.
The open-top concept is presented as a roadster, designed to express "ultimate beauty" and serve as an aspirational halo vehicle for the entire Lexus lineup. The car aims to present an athletic form with a steep windshield rake and contoured trunk lid.
"It blends all the best aspects of the original coupe with the dynamic design of an open-air convertible," says chief designer Tadao Mori.
The interior has been outfitted with white leather trim, while yellow accent stitching adds a bit of color to the otherwise monochrome theme.
The concept appears to be close to production form, suggesting Lexus may be feeling out public reaction before giving the car a final green-light.
