The first examples of the 2021 Lexus LC500 Convertible have arrived in Australia priced from $214,000 plus on-road costs.
With no options list available, the LC500 Convertible gets all the fruit as standard including 21-inch forged-alloy two-tone wheels, retractable door handles with illumination and 10-way power-operated front seats with driver memory.
Scroll below for the full list of standard equipment.
Lexus has opted for a fabric roof that can be opened and closed in just 15 seconds while travelling at up to 50km/h. The material is designed to ensure optimal tension and avoid wrinkling.
Buyers can choose from 40 combinations when considering exterior colour, interior trim and roof colours.
The LC500 Convertible is exclusively powered by the 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8 petrol engine producing 351kW and 540Nm. It’s matched to a 10-speed automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels.
At this stage, Lexus hasn’t confirmed if the hybrid powertrain for the LC Coupe will be offered in the drop-top.
Along with the ‘regular’ version, Lexus will offer a Limited Edition variant priced from $234,000 plus on-road costs.
Capped at to 10 units nationally, the Limited Edition is differentiated by a Structural Blue exterior paint finish, a nautical white-and-blue semi-aniline leather-accented interior and unique scuff plates.
The LC500 Convertible is available to order now.
