2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible Pricing

When the 2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible comes in dealers this summer time, it will carry a cost tag beginning at $102,025, together with the $one,025 place charge. That’s $eight,050 a lot more than the base 2021 LC 500 Coupe. 

As we acquired when the droptop LC was revealed at the L.A. Car Show previous 12 months, Lexus did a lot more than merely noticed off the roof. Engineers enhanced chassis rigidity by incorporating, reshaping and/or relocating structural braces, together with the rear suspension brace tower. To counter this, excess weight is diminished at the rear by making use of a die-forged aluminum suspension brace, and a unique dampener is made use of to guarantee comparable journey good quality as the coupe. Unsprung excess weight at the entrance suspension was also diminished. In complete, only 217 complete lbs ended up included for the convertible more than the 2019 LC 500 coupe.

The new smooth-top rated has four layers, and Lexus suggests its fabric was picked to make certain that it would stay limited and prevent wrinkling. Great audio insulation is promised, but Energetic Sounds Manage is also used, whether the roof is elevated or decreased, to further more suppress sound. The roof is decreased in fifteen seconds and elevated in 16. A rigid tonneau address is used when the roof is decreased.

Style and design variations for the convertible include things like a trunk lip that is been elevated a bit and widened. The centre brake light is built-in into it ­– it is really generally earlier mentioned the back again window. The beltline and rear molding ended up also reshaped to suppress wind, though a transparent plastic wind deflector is built-in neatly at the rear of the back again seat. Should that not sufficiently preserve the chill out, an readily available neck-level heater has been included to the seats related to what you’d uncover in various Mercedes convertibles. 

Other element updates include things like the addition of Apple CarPlay, Android Car and Amazon Alexa connectivity, but the LC’s version of Remote Contact does not get the RX’s touchscreen performance. 

Now, really should you genuinely be digging the Structural Blue paint job pictured here, together with the really Santorini-like complementary white inside, know that it is really exceptional to the Inspiration Collection. It’ll be restricted to only 100 units and prices $eighteen,800. Moreover the unique paint and inside, the LC’s other selections are involved together with a two-piece set of Zero Halliburton Pursuit Aluminum baggage designed specifically for Lexus. Swank.

Fewer exceptional is the $five,290 Touring package that provides a semi-aniline leather improve, embossed head restraints, the neck-level heaters, heated steering wheel, and the Mark Levinson Reference Encompass Sound audio process that can also be included by alone for $one,220. Other important selections as the $two,650 21-inch forged alloy wheels and the $460 Torsen Limited Slip Differential with the Yamaha Performance Damper suspension improve exceptional to the Convertible.

Whilst the selling prices earlier mentioned are surely significant, preserve in head that the LC Convertible base cost of $102,025 is just about $ten,000 fewer than the beginning cost of a Porsche 911 Cabriolet, which has 92 less horses, fewer normal tools and frequently pricier selections. The BMW eight Collection Convertible is a few grand less costly, but it far too has noticeably fewer electrical power. And in scenario you might be questioning, there will be no convertible version of the LC 500h hybrid — the battery pack and folded convertible roof would will need to dwell in in essence the very same space.
