At the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019, Lexus unveiled the world's first convertible LC500. It reflects Lexus' "human-centered" philosophy, and has become a hot topic especially in the North American market where Lexus is favored. The first car was auctioned in mid-January in Scottsdale, USA, for $ 2 million [approximately 220 million yen].
The first car has a chassis number of 100001 and is named "LC Inspiration Series Launch Edition 1 of 1". The body color is structured blue, a special color that only two can be produced per day. Wheels and brake calipers are also painted to match this, giving a luxurious finish.
In addition, a certificate signed by the factory manager and developer, a Zero Hari Tone luggage kit, and a design sketch are also included. Another point is the carbon plate labeled "LC Inspiration Series Launch Edition 1 of 1". The interior, with semi-aniline leather and blue stitching, is also exquisite.
All bids over 200 million yen will be donated to "BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF AMERICA" and "BOB WOODRUFF FOUNDATION". Release in Japan is scheduled for summer 2020.
