Al-Futtaim Automotive, the exclusive distributor of Lexus in the UAE, has launched the first-ever 2021 LC 500 Convertible in the UAE. Revealed last night at an exclusive preview event, the all-new Lexus LC Convertible made its UAE debut, opening possibilities for flagship performance. Hosted at the Lexus Showroom in Dubai Festival City, the event was attended by Lexus customers, media personnel and social figures, as well as Al-Futtaim Automotive senior officials including Paul Willis, President – Al-Futtaim Automotive, Vincent Wijnen, Senior Managing Director, UAE – Al-Futtaim Automotive and Carlos Montenegro, Managing Director, Fleet & Leasing – Al-Futtaim Automotive.
Expanding upon the flagship performance of its Coupe counterpart, the first-ever LC 500 Convertible broadens the LC family with a stunning, eye-catching design and its own luxurious handling characteristics designed to take top-down driving to the next level. Considerable driving evaluation and analysis went into crafting unique driving qualities that give the vehicle its own athletic identity to offer impressive performance that remains true to its convertible design.
Unveiling the 2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible, Paul Willis, President of Al-Futtaim Automotive said: “We are thrilled to make the iconic 2021 LC Convertible available to our customers in the UAE. Lexus has always been a leader of unique automotive design and outstanding performance; and with the launch of all-new LC Convertible, the brand is presenting a halo model which represents a future chapter of the Lexus brand – a journey we are proud to be part of. Al-Futtaim Automotive enjoys a strong partnership with Lexus that goes back more than 30 years during which the brand proved to win the heart of Emirati customers who now account over 80 percent of our Lexus customer database in the UAE.”
The LC 500 Convertible may be based in part on the LC 500 coupe, but it is no mere crop-topped replica. Featuring a meticulously designed, lightweight soft top, the LC 500 Convertible maintains the same sleek silhouette as its coupe counterpart. Priced at AED 465,000, the new LC 500 Convertible will be available in the UAE in 11 exterior colour options. Limited to 100 units worldwide, only one exclusive LC 500 Convertible in a special edition colour – structural blue with marina white interior, will be available at Al-Futtaim Lexus in the UAE; it will be priced at AED 495,000.
