Lexus unveiled the IS convertible at the Paris motor show.

Called the IS 250 C, it will be Lexus's second derivative of the IS.

It is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine and has a three-part folding hard-top roof that opens in 20 seconds.

Expect it to be on sale in the UK next summer.

An RC replacement?
Also on the Lexus stand is the LF-Xh concept car, making its European show debut after being unveiled at the Tokyo motor show last year.

The 4x4 hybrid is rumoured to be a foretaste of the car that will eventually replace the RX.

A V6 petrol engine combined with electric motors powers the concept car.
