Lexus LC Convertible will appear in the next two yearsJanuary 19, 2018
The open version of the model Lexus LC Convertible received a “green light” and is likely to be released within the next 18-24 months. This will be the first gig of the Japanese premium brand after the IS C model, which left the market a few years ago. This is reported by the publication of Auto Express, referring to the company’s insiders.
Rumors of the Lexus LC Convertible and the charged version of LC F have long been among the automotive media in the world. Now there was information from unofficial sources that they are close to mass production.
President of Lexus International Yoshihiro Savva refused to confirm the publication that Lexus LC convertible decided to bring the case to the serial model.
“I hope that we will have a cabriolet in the near future, as we know that the premium segment of the market requires open versions of models. According to LC F, the decision has not yet been taken. However, a high-performance LC is a good opportunity for us to strengthen our positions, “Savva said.
It is assumed that LC Convertible’s engine scale will be identical to the coupe. This means that it will include a 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine with a power output of 471 hp. and a hybrid plant with a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with an electric motor with a total power of 354 hp.
According to the insider, the model LC F, most likely, will also appear in the coming years. It is expected that this new product will receive a 4.0-liter V8 engine with a double turbo power of about 600 horsepower.
