As is customary in such cases, the chassis has been hardened to compensate for the structural deficiency with the collapse of the roof and this means an increase of about 90 kg and loss of volume in the trunk.
And this is still a Lexus, of course, so the company promises to maintain the same pleasant and quiet ride and even talks about dedicated heating for the neck next to the windshield, which is supposed to prevent unpleasant wind vortices.
Regarding opening and closing the roof - it can be opened and closed while driving at speeds of up to 50 km / h, and the driver can follow the progress of opening or closing the roof using animation displayed on the trip computer screen.
The opening time of the roof is 15 seconds, and the closing time is 16 seconds.
The LC's unique propulsion unit remained in place.
Atmospheric 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 477 hp that move to the rear wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Gives LC linear but vigorous acceleration.
The power output is adapted to the driving environment, with smooth acceleration in normal driving and acceleration to the limit of capacity when the driver so desires.
The vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 in 5 seconds.
Lexus amplifies the vocal capability of this engine through a sound generator that plays the original engine sound through the dashboard inside the vehicle and also through a valve in the exhaust system.
Lexus is also prolonging at length the improved insulation, high-capacity audio system and the many comfort accessories that line every good part of the cabin resulting from the leather-lined leather.
The price with us is set at NIS 920,000 compared to NIS 820,000 for the box office version.
