The New Lexus LC Convertible is The Pinnacle of Luxury

Any time a movie includes a shot of someone driving a convertible, it always looks like that particular scene was filmed in some alternate universe without wind resistance. It'll be a high speed chase with the top down and yet the driver's hair is motionless — whereas every time you so much as crack a window you feel like you're standing inside a jet turbine. If that's the case, then the all new 2021 Lexus LC convertible must have come from that same universe, because even as you press the accelerator and hear the notes from the V8 engine fill the cabin, the wind is engineered away by the wind deflectors and windscreens. With that kind of attention to detail, it's no surprise that the 2021 LC Convertible is built with real-time suspension damping, a strengthened chassis and overall lighter weight, making it without comparison or compromise.
