What Car? says...
Back in the day, were you the kind of person who owned an Apple computer, but before Apple went all mainstream after the launch of its iPhone? If so, you’ll probably appreciate something alternative and quirky like the Lexus LC 500 Convertible.
It’s so easy to slip towards mainstream buying habits, follow the crowd and, in this case, almost automatically drop into the driving seat of a BMW 8 Series Convertible, a Porsche 911 Cabriolet or even a Bentley Continental GTC. And hey, there’s nothing wrong with that; they’re stupendous cars that many people would, quite rightly, swap their least favourite child for.
But, just sometimes, it feels good to be different, doesn’t it? And with the Lexus LC 500 Convertible’s swoops and slashes, stylistically it looks like nothing else on the road – well, apart from the Lexus LC coupé, that is.
If you’re looking at the LC and thinking that it’s as modern as a two-week holiday on Mars, it has a lovely surprise for those with their little toe dipped in the warm waters of yesteryear: a wild, thundering, naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8. And what better way to realise the full potential of a warbling V8 than in a convertible?
By now, you must be as curious as the cat to know more. Keep on reading and we’ll tell you if the Lexus LC 500 Convertible is only for the left-field and adventurous, or whether it should be on everyone’s convertible shopping list.
