This is the first time Lexus has introduced a soft-top convertible. While the hardtop Lexus LC500 looks pretty gorgeous, the convertible elevates its styling to another level. The LC500 Convertible is stylish, comfortable and gives you that exclusivity.
Lexus has also made sure that while converting it into the convertible version the boot space, however small, was still not affected. The roof of the LC500 folds down in 17 seconds while takes 15 seconds to fold up and it can work at a speed of up to 31 mph.
This Lexus LC500 Convertible comes with the 5.0-Litre, V8 naturally aspirated petrol engine that is mated to the world’s first 10-speed automatic gearbox. It is a rear-wheel drive (RWD). The engine note is one of the best that you will hear from a road-going car. It’s bassy and has an ear-pleasing grunt to its note. Other changes include a stiffer chassis with more bracing meaning this adds another 100 kgs to the LC500’s weight and makes it cross a two-ton mark. There are also suspension changes to the LC500 2021 version giving you a more comfortable ride.
An annoying feature that still continues is the absence of a touchscreen on the 10.3-inch infotainment system. As result, it has to be operated using the trackpad provided. You can connect to the infotainment system using the Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
The Lexus LC500 Convertible more of an object of desire to enjoy and experience while you can, since electric cars are the future. You will miss cars like this when they are gone and that is not very far away. it is one of the perfect GT cruisers. I will be getting a detailed 2021 Lexus LC500 Convertible review soon.
