10 cars taking on the Lexus LC 500 Convertible

Lexus recently made the LC 500 Convertible available in South Africa, at a starting price of R2,345,500.

This drop-top Lexus is a more slanted version of the Coupe that came before it and features a four-layer cloth roof that raises and lowers in 15 seconds at speeds of up to 50km/h.

It also comes with sharp daytime running lights, two-tone 21-inch wheels, semi-aniline leather seats, retractable door handles, and chrome design elements that tie everything together to give the convertible a stylish yet aggressive look.

Under the hood, you will then find a 5.0-litre, V8, petrol engine that puts out 351kW and 540Nm.

Accelerating to 100km/h takes 4.7 seconds, top speed comes in at 270km/h, and combined fuel consumption is rated at 12.7l/100km.
