Lexus LC Convertible Concept And RC F Track Edition To Bow In Geneva Too

Lexus will have a spectacular lineup at this year’s Geneva Motor Show consisting of the RC F Track Edition high-performance coupe and the stunning LC Convertible Concept.

Both cars have already had their world debuts at the Detroit Auto Show last month and now Lexus is bringing them to Geneva for their European premieres. The Lexus LC Convertible Concept is a study in name only, as it looks as production-ready as it gets.

The carmaker has confirmed that the drop-top LC concept is a direct preview of the production model. Lexus says the LC Convertible study “suggests an exciting new dimension of the LC” and we couldn’t agree more. It features a folding soft-top that gets stowed in a special compartment behind the rear seats and it sits 5 mm (0.2 in) closer to the road than the LC coupe. The show car presented in Detroit featured 22-inch wheels, black exterior trim, and a white leather interior with yellow contrast stitching.

As for the RC F Track Edition, the name says it all, really. It’s a hardcore version of an already hardcore performance coupe. Upgrades include new carbon fiber elements that save 80 kg (176 lbs) of weight and improve aerodynamic performance and downforce, as well as ceramic brake discs and titanium tailpipes.

The 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine remains unchanged, delivering 479 PS (472 HP) and 395 lb-ft (536 Nm) of torque, channeled to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. That translates into a 0-60 mph sprint of 3.96 seconds with Launch Control engaged. Styling-wise, the Lexus RC F Track Edition is easy to recognize thanks to the aggressive carbon fiber aero kit and red leather interior.
