The Lexus LC 500 Convertible isn’t as sharp to drive as a Porsche 911 Cabriolet, but it’s up there with most other rivals for performance, agility, comfort and fun. The naturally aspirated V8 sounds awesome and the LC has one of the nicest interiors in the class.

It’s worth adding the optional neck heaters and the amazing Mark Levinson 17-speaker hi-fi.

Who needs choice when the lack of it forces you down the route of a naturally aspirated V8 with 457bhp that plays a tune like this? Seriously, if you enjoy the sound of a big-capacity petrol engine then you’ll love it. It’s smooth and woofly when you’re boulevarding, but when you hit the accelerator hard and rev it out past 7000rpm it takes on the highly tuned, racing timbre, which sounds more sensational and than the BMW 8 Series and less contrived than the Jaguar F-Type. Quick, too, with 0-62mph in just 5.0sec and a snappy, ten-speed automatic gearbox.
