KYOSHO ORIGINAL 1/43scale Lexus LC500 Convertible (Radiant Red Contrast Layering) [No.KS03902RR]
The LC is the luxury coupe that drives the brand profile for Lexus to belong with other premium car brands from Europe and America. When the Lexus brand was launched in 1989, the SC model based on the Soarer lacked the refinement needed to fulfill the role of flagbearer for the Lexus brand. Lexus exhibited the LF-LC concept car at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show and subsequently released the production version ‘LC’ model, short for Luxury Coupe, indicating the pure focus of the development concept. Dimensions of 4,770mm length and 1,920mm width create a sense of presence from its stunningly cool design that was received to wide acclaim. In 2020 a convertible was released to dial up the gorgeous level and provide that free and easy feeling with the top down as well as a different silhouette to the coupe when closed. Two types of engines were available for the coupe: a 5ℓ V8 and a 3.5ℓ V6 + hybrid, but the convertible only incorporates the former. A newly developed AT manages performance from the 477ps output so you can fully enjoy smooth and dynamic driving with a sound generator and valve to produce engine and exhaust sound for complete sensory fulfillment. To complete this luxury convertible, Lexus includes a sound system that can be enjoyed in the open as well as air conditioning and seat heater.
