Performance

Breathtaking Performance

Breathtaking performance is yours for the asking. LC 500 Convertible’s naturally aspirated 5.0-Litre V8 engine generates 471 horsepower @ 7,100 rpm, and 398 ft-lbs of torque @ 4,800 rpm to carry you from 0 to pure exhilaration in mere seconds. A class-exclusive Direct-Shift 10-speed automatic transmission seamlessly translates your wish into LC Convertible’s command.

Harmony of Opposites

Thrill to the soul-stirring sound of the naturally aspirated V8, or enjoy a quieter atmosphere and easy conversation. LC 500 Convertible lets you do both, thanks to its exceptional engineering and breakthroughs in imaginative technology.

Engine Sound

With a press of the accelerator, the roar of the V8 is transmitted into the cabin through a special diaphragm. While a computer controlled valve dials up the aggressive tones of the exhaust.

Active Noise Control

Active Noise Control (ANC) technology works to counteract unwanted engine sounds. Combined with “radical” sound absorbing materials, LC Convertible achieves a level of quietness almost unheard of in a convertible – even with the top down.

Aerodynamic Design

A transparent wind deflector is just one of the many measures taken to reduce unwanted air from entering the cabin even at high speeds, for uninhibited enjoyment of open-air driving that only a convertible can provide.

Chassis & Suspension

LC 500 Convertible’s dynamic performance owes much to its highly rigid body and extensive use of high-strength yet lightweight materials. A Torsen Limited Slip Differential maximizes torque and traction. While an adaptive variable suspension and rear performance damper smooth out the ride even on less than ideal road surfaces.

Drive Mode Select

Get carried away by the mood or the needs of the moment. With the turn of a dial, you can choose from five preset drive modes, including Normal, Eco, Comfort, Sport S or Sport S+. You can even customize one for yourself.

Wheels & Tires

LC 500 Convertible rides on 21” forged aluminum alloy wheels wrapped in newly developed run-flat tires. The highly polished wheels feature a black two-tone finish. While different size tires front and rear add to LC Convertible’s beautifully stable and responsive ride.

Design

Dynamic Exterior

Channeling the dynamic lines of the LC Coupe, LC Convertible captivates the imagination, fusing elegance and aggression, and showcasing a new facet of its personality from every angle. The front end is wide and aggressive, with its dynamic spindle grille, sophisticated LED projector lamps, and bold fender flares. The side silhouette is sleek and flowing, marked by its low-slung centre of gravity and sharp, tapered roofline. The rear leaves an equally strong impression, with its kicked-up trunk line and distinctive rear combination lamps

Lightweight Soft-Top

The exclusive 4-layer lightweight soft-top is a marvel of engineering, crafted to maintain LC Convertible’s aerodynamic and emotionally-charged design whether the top is up or down. The fabric itself was carefully selected and manufactured to ensure optimal tension -- both to eliminate wrinkling and to improve sound insulation.

Opening & Closing

The lightweight soft-top is capable of opening or closing in 15-seconds, at speeds up to 50 km/h. An animated display on the instrument panel lets you monitor its progress.

Innovative Folding System

An innovative folding system enables the roof to be stored in an exceptionally small space so that it doesn’t intrude on luggage capacity.

2+2 Interior

Artfully designed and thoughtfully appointed, LC Convertible’s cabin engages your senses every time you slip behind the wheel. From the comfort of its tailored seats – both heated and ventilated – to the firm grip of the heated steering wheel, to the snug fit of the cockpit and perfect placement of every switch and button, LC invites you to engage in wide-open adventures.

Inspiration Series

LC Convertible’s extraordinary atmosphere reaches its fullest expression in the limited edition Inspiration Series. Evoking those special times spent at a marina, this special edition features an exclusive colour scheme combining a Structural Blue exterior, Amalfi White interior, and Marine convertible top.

Structural Blue

15 years in development, Structural Blue represents a new dimension in the art of exterior finishing.

Amalfi White

Amalfi White is used over the maximum possible area, including a Lexus-first all-white steering wheel and horn pad.

Quilted Seats

Like all LC Convertible models, the Inspiration Series features a unique quilting design on the seat shoulders, and perforations of differing diameters to create a gradation-like design for an added touch of elegance. An attention to detail that helps to make the Inspiration Series as visually captivating with the soft-top roof up or down.

Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert19

LC Convertible enhances your peace of mind with standard Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). BSM alerts you to the presence of vehicles in adjacent lanes that may have escaped visibility in your side-view mirrors. While RCTA warns you about hazards you can’t see while backing up.

Backup Camera with Intuitive Parking Assist2

The Rearview Camera, in combination with Intuitive Park Assist, takes the guesswork out of parking. The camera provides a wide field of view of what’s behind, and clear guidelines to assist you when backing into a parking space. Intuitive Parking Assist uses front and rear mounted sensors to warn you of obstacles in your path, especially useful when parallel parking.

High Rigidity Body

LC’s overwhelming frame strength is designed to achieve “world top collision safety performance”. Extensive reinforcements, bracing, and the use of advanced techniques including laser welding and laser screw welding combine to create a platform that simultaneously serves to protect occupants and deliver exceptional steering response and feedback.

Please see your Owner's Manual for further details.
