2018 LEXUS LC CONVERTIBLE REVIEW & CHANGES – Presenting a convertible is needed Lexus better take on German competitors who supply them in spades. Lexus previewed a drop-top with the debut of the LF-C2 concept in 2018. This concept hinted at a future RC Convertible, but these plans were actually obviously scrapped as Lexus changed its focus to crossovers.
A convertible LC will probably discuss powertrains with the traditional coupe. The LC 500 can make 471 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque from it’s by natural means aspirated V-8. A hybrid version utilizes a 3.5-liter V-6, electric motor, and nickel metal hydride battery for an overall output of 354 hp.
Lexus has provided solid hints that it is looking to include a convertible. “I expect that people may have a convertible in the near future. We all know the luxury market requires a convertible,” Yoshihiro Sawa, director of Lexus International, told Auto Express.
We would not be amazed if Lexus also offers an LC F, provided that the automaker registered a trademark program for the brand. It must make around 600 hp from a new 4.-liter twin-turbo V-8 that’s not a development of the recent LC 500’s engine, with respect to the report. Also assume more dramatic styling with this vehicle, from a striking spoiler, hood scoop, and large wheel arches.
