Lexus Manila Inc. gave select media a sneak peek at the soon-to-be-launched Lexus LC500 Convertible which will arrive at the showroom by July of this year.
The biggest change is the folding soft top that transforms the beautiful grand tourer to an even more striking drop-top, allowing drivers to enjoy open-air motoring in absolute style and comfort.
Power still comes from the 5-liter normally aspirated V8 that delivers a scintillating 470 horsepower channeling drive to the rear wheels via a smooth 10-speed automatic transmission. With the roof down, the soundtrack from the powerful V8 delivers a powerful baritone solo that is cultured, smooth and refined, typical of any Lexus vehicle.
No other details have been released, and Lexus Manila is looking at a P500,000 premium over the coupe, bringing price to roughly P10.5 Million.
The Philippines remains as the LC500’s biggest market in ASEAN, selling 37 units since it was released in 2018. The Convertible is sure to add a new dimension to the LC500 driving experience, attracting more buyers looking for a more dramatic driving experience from the brand.
