Production Lexus LC Convertible Set For Goodwood Debut

Lexus used the 2019 North American International Auto Show to introduce the stunning LC Convertible concept. Now, it appears the production model is right around the corner.

According to Roadshow, Lexus will unveil the 2020 LC Convertible at the Goodwood Festival of Speed which kicks off on July 4th.

Little is known about the car, but it is expected to be virtually identical to the concept. As a result, the production model should closely echo the coupe but adopt a unique rear end and a retractable soft top.

Engine options should carryover from the coupe and include a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 that produces 471 hp (351 kW / 478 PS) and 398 lb-ft (539 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a ten-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. This setup enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds, but the convertible will likely be a tad slower.

We can also expect a hybrid variant with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, two electric motors and a lithium-ion battery pack. The powertrain has a combined output of 354 hp (264 kW / 359 PS) and it allows the coupe to run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.7 seconds.  Furthermore, the model has an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 26 mpg city / 35 mpg highway / 30 mpg combined.

    The LC and RC were begging for a convertible variation, so it’s good at least one of them going topless..
    I just wish i could afford it 😕

    Now, if I go they can debut the LC-F at the same time, since the M8 was just unveiled. That would be a very bold move.

      I think the F version of either the LC or LS are coming at the next Tokyo auto show.

    The good thing about a convertible LC is that it removes about 1/3 of the ugliness. This thing still has a nightmarish mug and way too much eyeliner.

    Looks great, but why did it take so long to release a convertible version?

      Slow sales I’d imagine. Its not moving like a Camry. They need return on investment.

    Hardtop PLEASE !!!

  • TB

    Sharp…but worth close to 100K? Good looking car…and probably good quality…just not sure of the premium price for it.

    I don’t think the current generation of AM’s is the brands’ best. But Aston Martin is in another league compared to Lexus and the ridiculous LC.
