3-eye Bi-Beam LED headlamps
The sophisticated inverted trapezoid design of the 3-eye headlamps projects a high-tech image. The distinctive graphics accentuate a feeling of depth, and contrast with the arrowhead-shaped LED DRL (Daytime Running Lamp) that emits a subtle Lexus signature. The very compact unit contributes to the low hood, short overhang and lightweight body.
LED rear combination lamps
The increasingly strong sequential illumination of the signature L-shaped rear combination lamps is created by an innovative multi-reflection effect using a one-way mirror. The lamp structure enhances illumination depth while enabling thin lamps that minimize intrusion into the luggage space.
Fusing seductive beauty with aerodynamic function, a simple line on the door reveals the presence of the handle recessed flush with the surface. When carrying the Electronic Key, push the front of the handle and it unlocks the door and pops the handle out. Push the rear of the handle and it retracts automatically and locks the door. At night, integrated LED illumination guides you to the handle.
Evolved from the Lexus LFA supercar, the single central 8-inch color TFT (Thin Film Transistor) meter changes color and the information displayed with the drive mode selected, to communicate vital vehicle information at a glance. In addition, information from the multi-information system can be displayed either within the meter, or beside the meter when it slides to the side. The wide viewing angle of the large 10.3-inch EMV (Electro Multi-Vision) display provides the driver with clear audio and navigation system information. The large color head-up display projects frequently checked driving information and warnings on the lower windshield in the driver’s line of sight, minimizing eye movement from the road ahead
Mark Levinson audio system
The audiophile-quality Mark Levinson Reference Surround Sound System incorporates an 11-channel amplifier that drives 13 speakers, to replicate a precise sound stage that reproduces the position and depth of each instrument. It incorporates Clari-Fi technology that intelligently restores high fidelity to music from compressed digital sources such as MP3.
Remote Touch Interface
The newly-developed, advanced touchpad surface enables simple touchpad operation, letting users interact intuitively with the audio and navigation systems on the 10.3-inch EMV display, providing easy control of both systems.
Paddle shift switches
The size and positioning of the paddle shift switches were optimized so they can be operated without changing grip on the steering wheel. Their magnesium alloy finish contributes to their light weight and high rigidity, and also adds a luxury touch.
Lexus Climate Concierge
Beneath the beautiful handcrafted finish of the front seats is an innovative layered structure that separates the structures for the seat back and sides, enhancing the strength of the seat frame for lively sports driving. Additional refinements to the side cushioning to provide excellent lateral support, are complemented by concave shaping of the seat cushion to support the pelvis. The Lexus Climate Concierge automatically controls the cabin temperature and ventilated Seats for the front seats. Suction-type seat ventilation eliminates the humid feeling associated with leather seats.
LED ambient illumination
LED ambient illumination integrated into the door trim contributes to the feeling of luxury in the cabin, subtly shading and lighting the drape of the trim. It provides an elegant atmosphere that is different from its daytime face.
Fully automated roof system
The fully automated roof system sets the LC Convertible apart. The compact soft top conveys a feeling of lightness, crafted to create a distinctive roofline when closed, and a beautiful silhouette when open and stored under the tonneau cover. It opens and closes quickly in a smooth graceful motion while driving at speeds below 50km/h, with the operational status shown by an animation and progress bar in the multi information display. An insulation layer in the top’s multi-layered structure contributes to the quiet cabin.
In a subtle Lexus refinement, the soft top control switch is concealed under the palm rest, creating a special feeling of opening the lid that mimics opening/closing the soft top. For intuitive operation, the switch direction matches the movement of the roof. The switch features a non-slip Lexus L-shaped pattern, providing tactile feedback for confident operation.
The transparent rear wind deflector behind the rear seats contributes to comfort in the cabin while driving at speeds up to 60km/h. It controls the flow of air into the rear of cabin, and directs it down into the rear seat area to reduce airflow.
