2020 Lexus LC Convertible Prototype: Walkaround tour

FULL STORY: https://www.caradvice.com.au/lexus/lc500/?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=YT_DESC

The Lexus LC Convertible prototype has touched down in Australia to be displayed at the 2019 Lexus Melbourne Cup. 

Still in its digital camouflage wrap fresh from its world debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July this year, the body design looks almost identical to the concept revealed at the Detroit motor show earlier this year. 

There are no blue Lexus badges to be seen, so it is not powered by the V6 Hybrid system, but the same petrol V8 engine sourced from the LC500 coupe. Take a look at the video above to hear it sing. 

The interior is still a work-in-progress, so we could not show you details of the cabin, but a temporary leather cover currently protects the camel-coloured leather interior. A soft or hardtop for the production model still has not been announced, and it was hard to make out what top it will have in the recent spy photos. 

The production topless LC still has not been officially confirmed for Australia, but it is a good sign Lexus Australia has decided to bring it to Melbourne to give race punters a peek at it, as Lexus PR Spokesperson, Dan DeGasperi told CarAdvice at Flemington Racecourse. 

“We’re really thrilled to have the LC Convertible prototype in Australia for the Lexus Melbourne Cup, where it has been air freighted here directly from Europe. 

“I think the LC coupe has been a real design icon for us. It’s a huge brand builder and a real showcase of what our design team can do. This really is the next step for Lexus.”  

See the LC convertible prototype on show at the 2019 Lexus Melbourne Cup from November 4 to 7.
