The Sun's Rob Gill:
"The LC Convertible is the second best Lexus ever after the LFA supercar. Mostly because it’s powered by a stonking, naturally aspirated V8 – and we all know they’re not long for this world – but also for its edgy looks.
This roadster is more or less bolt-by-bolt the same car as the coupe... except it has headroom of about 20,000 miles and neck warmers in the headrests.
That glorious 5.0-litre engine sends 464hp to the rear wheels via a close-ratio ten-speed auto and limited-slip diff. But it’s the sound of the petrol and air combusting that makes me all tingly, as much as the speed.
You sit low and snug in this car. The steering is nicely weighted. It’s well balanced. It can glide around significant corners at considerable speeds. Uncork that V8 properly and your passenger will be grateful for the twin grab-handles.
Other positives. The cockpit is beautifully appointed. The four-layer roof makes motorway cruising delightfully refined. Head-up display is XL-sized and keeps your eyes on the road.
I can even forgive the clunky touchpad controller that’s hopelessly outdated. Because when all is said and done, this is a rare and highly entertaining car that turns heads like an Aston Martin roadster – for much less money.”
