  The engine

The 2022 Lexus LC 500 will feature the naturally aspirated 5.0-Liter V8 engine that produces 471 horsepower at 7,100 rpm and 398 lb-ft of torque at 4,800 rpm.  For optimum performance, the V8 engine is mated with a Direct-Shift 10-speed automatic transmission. It can reach 60 mph from rest in just 4.6 seconds, its maximum track speed is electronically limited to 168 mph.

Exhaust system

The engine intake pulses are naturally carried through a diaphragm into a sound pipe that carries the sounds of the V8, not the air itself, into the cabin to enhance its rumble.

 To further enhance the aggressive tone of the engine’s exhaust and augment performance, Lexus added a computer-controlled valve that balances the fine line between optimizing exhaust back-pressure, exhaust tone, and volume at higher speeds.


The cabin of the 2022 Lexus LC 500 convertible features an impressive 10.3-inch high-resolution split-screen multimedia display to provide immediate access to audio or climate controls and various systems, including the voice-activated navigation system.

Endless summer

Lexus engineers also took time to design the cabin to reduce wind noise. A standard transparent polycarbonate wind deflector helps restrict unwanted air from entering the cabin during low-speed travel, such as driving in the city, while the standard windscreen provides improved cabin experience during high-speed travel such as freeway driving for comfortable conversing with the top down.

 The Active Noise Control combines sound insulation and absorption techniques to help suppress unwanted harshness from entering the cabin.

The cream of the crop top

The LC Convertible’s soft-top design allowed engineers to focus on accentuating the sleek lines of the convertible without significant intrusions to the trunk and cabin space that can come with a heavier, bulkier hardtop. It features an innovative folding mechanism that includes a tonneau cover for when it is stored.

The roof can be opened or closed at speeds up to 31 mph. An animated display on the multi-information display shows the top’s progress and provides warning messages to confirm the status of the soft-top roof. One of the most impressive aspects is the time it takes to open or close: approximately 15 seconds to open and approximately 16 seconds to close, depending upon environmental factors. Even the sound system is fine-tuned specifically for the convertible, with an equalizer that adjusts based on the driving environment whether the top is open or closed. The power window controls have been linked to the movement of the roof as well, allowing the ability to switch to open-air freedom with the single push of a button.

Once closed, a tonneau covers the roof storage space to provide a weather-resistant seal from the elements. The rear profile of the LC Convertible trunk is accentuated with a kicked-up design that lifts its profile slightly, while the surface of the spoiler is laterally broadened to emphasize the low, wide stance of the car. The center brake light is integrated into the trunk lid.

Premium magnesium and aluminum components are adopted for the roof links and support structure to provide both a reduction in weight and a design with a low center of gravity. The roof material itself was carefully selected and manufactured to help ensure optimal tension, minimize wrinkling and improve sound insulation. The four-layer soft top, which includes three layers of fabric and one layer of sound-absorbing material, is designed to retain the flowing roofline of the coupe without the supporting frame visible through the fabric.

A hydraulic system is responsible for opening and closing the convertible’s roof in an elegant, seamless motion. The system features an electromagnetic valve to control the hydraulic pressure generated by the hydraulic pump to extend or contract cylinders for the tension bow, main roof, and tonneau cover. Three times the number of typical durability tests were conducted to ensure reliability and quietness of operation.

The LC 500 Convertible top is offered in two colors: Black and Sand. The exterior color palette has been refined for 2022 and includes Ultra White*, Atomic Silver, Smoky Granite Mica, Caviar, Infrared**, Flare Yellow**, Nightfall Mica, Nori Green Pearl, and Cadmium Orange**. Depending upon the exterior color chosen, three interior colors are available: Black, Circuit Red, and Toasted Caramel.

*Available for an additional $500 charge

**Available for an additional $595 charge.

The AVS system

The Adaptive Variable Suspension has been enhanced to complement the convertible as well by continually adjusting damping control in response to driving operation and road surface conditions, with the ability to adjust to an impressive 650 different levels of damping force.

The wheels

Standard on the 2022 LC Convertible is the 20-inch cast alloy wheels, and 20-inch forged wheels. Customers can upgrade to large-diameter 21-inch forged wheels which is available as an option.

  Lexus employed the use of run-flat tires at all four corners to eliminate the need for a spare tire, which in turn, allows engineers to free up space, save additional weight and shorten the rear overhang.
