Lexus LC Convertible Concept 2019 Interiors
There is very little known about the interiors of the Lexus LC Convertible Concept 2019 edition. However, going by some reliable inputs and reports a few things are worth mention. The car will have quite a few things that are common with coupe and there could be a few extra additions and features. With the white leather upholstery combined with yellow accent stitching is something which is most likely to stand out as far as the interiors are concerned. The interiors will most probably have a two-tone combo.
It the right have white color on the lower door panels and seats. Furthermore, the coupe will also have black inserts on the seatbacks and as far as the upper door panels are concerned. Probably will be the same as far as the steering wheels and the dashboard is concerned. The Concept otherwise would most probably be a standard LC couple. It will most probably have high-quality infotainment display, digital instrument clusters, and analog clock and so on. Finally, roadster will get quite a fancy interior but may not look like a concept car.
As far as the exteriors are concerned, the 2019 Lexus LC Concept will not too much of changes as far as the soft-top is concerned. It is expected to be almost the same as the roof of Coupe. This could be a wee-bit shorter though it could resemble a deck lid. It will most probably have a smaller rear window and maybe less aggressive towards the rear. However, these are just speculations based on grapevine reports. The length is expected to be around 187.8 inches / 4770 mm, the width of around 75.6 inches / 1920 mm, the height of around 52.8 inches / 1340 mm and it is likely to have a wheelbase of 113 inches / 2870 mm. Wheels will be a 22-inch aluminum alloy.
The powertrain should be a V-8 engine but there are others who believe that it might only be a gas-only version. This is because of some obvious reports from the inside. The car would most probably be powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine that should generate 467 horsepower and around 389 pound-feet of torque to power the rear wheels. Also, it is most likely to have a 10-speed automatic transmission. New LC Convertible should be able to reach from 0 to 60 in 5.3 seconds flat.
