Lexus has showed an impressive coupe this year, and it comes with a V8 engine and rear-wheel-drive. It is labelled the LC, and there’s also a hybrid version that comes with a complicated system which Lexus’ offer. First watched in 2015 under the name of LF-LC, the LC stood for Luxury Coupe, but it appears that the Japanese brand is seriously thinking making a cabriolet version as well.
After all, Lexus has two versions that can contest with Mercedes-Benz’s S-Class, so why not make a cabriolet to stiffen the race and ensure that they get an one-on-one battle out of this. The most new convertible idea from Lexus was the LF-C2, which was showcased at the 2015 Geneva auto show, shortly after its global launch at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Evidently, the LF-C2 was not in the part of the LC, being coated adjacent to BMW’s 4 Series Cabriolet but that does not change the information that the Japanese brand is still curious in the drop-top part.
In the case of the feasible LC Cabriolet, Lexus could open a vehicle like that in mid-2018, if we were to be bullish. While a version like this could transport appreciable income to the brand, Lexus would still have to confirm the improvement costs of a convertible version of one of its most exorbitant versions.
The brand will also have to decide whether to offer a hybrid version of this body style, or if it should go against what it stands for present. Regardless of the hybrid version of the latent Lexus LC Cabriolet, the LC500 convertible has the shot of becoming one of the nicest-sounding versions in the part. It features a naturally aspirated V8 engine with a direct injection system, which comes from the GS F. That engine is not the master of performance when V8 motors are concerned, but it is good enough for 475 HP at 7,100 rpm, along with 530 Nm of torque between 4,800 and 5,600 rpm. Any top-of-the-line premium convertible will not let you line through the wheels, so this version should get the company’s 10-speed-automatic.
