The Japanese manufacturer has revealed the open version of “first time” LC. Public premiere will take place next week.

Cars with folding roof – not the seller. Usually their sales are modest, they are more necessary for brand image. It is not surprising that in the current economically challenging times, few of the producers hurry to saturate the model range with novelties. Lexus is no exception: most of them are similar concepts in the series did not go. So, in 2008, was presented the concept Roadster Lexus LF-A in 2012 showed the spider on the basis of the serial coupe LFA; in 2014 appeared experienced convertible LF-C2. But what about the Lexus LC Convertible on the basis of the serial coupe, the company is more serious.

We will remind, the predecessor of the model LC is convertible Lexus SC 430. The appearance of the open version, we can say, historically justified. The corresponding concept Lexus LC without a roof – will show on next week at the Detroit auto show.

The convertible is nearly the same as the coupe except, of course, convertible top. Roof, by the way, tissue. Another obvious difference is the 22-inch wheels instead of 20-inch serial “dvuhdverki”. The interior, incidentally, is also the same as the closed-source version of LC, it is true for the concept chose black and white leather trim with yellow stitching.

Almost the same dimensions and an outdoor variant of the flagship coupe below 5 mm (1 340 mm), but longer by 10 mm (4 770 mm). Wheelbase and width are the same (2 1 870 and 920 mm, respectively). Because of the convertible top in the convertible was even less space for the rear passengers.

Technical details about the future novelty company has not yet disclosed. Presumably the “filling” is the same as the coupe Lexus LC: 477-horsepower 5-liter naturally aspirated “eight” with a torque of 540 Nm, as well as hybrid setup, in which 3.5 V6 and two electric motors (total power – 359 HP, torque – 475 Nm).

Note, sales of the Lexus LC fall. On the main market in the USA for the year 2018 were sold only 1 979 copies, although incomplete 2017-yy (may-Dec) dealers have implemented 2 484 coupe. In Europe in January-November last year, the model has sold 792 of the machine, and over half of the previous year (July to December) managed to sell 599 PCs In Russia, sales altogether miserable: in the first 11 months of 2018 were sold 26 units, for the second half of 2017 – 34 PCs.

The Lexus has hinted that the convertible LC can stand on the conveyor. It is unlikely that the open version will greatly affect the demand. But interest might spur coupe “charged” version of the LC F – as previously reported, will probably get barberopoulou chetyrehlitrovy “eight” with a capacity of 630 HP.

audi a5 sportback

Audi a5,Audi a5 sportback. В отличие от «а-четвёртой», обновление A5 не затронуло дверные панели. Но традиционный для середины жизненного цикла набор перемен соблюдён: бамперы, решётка радиатора и вся оптика — новые.

In contrast to the “a-fourth”, the update A5 did not affect the door panel. But traditional mid-life cycle recruitment changes observed: bumpers, grille and optics all — new.

Pyatidverka Audi A5 Sportback the current generation is available in 2016 without radical change. However, on the nose of the planned update, which should go according to the script already redrawn the family A4. Until the end of the year (probably Frankfurt in September) all secrets will be revealed, and while our forecasts.

The interior is close to this photoset in the picture not included, but we know that it can wait for “a-fourth”: there will be a new touchscreen Central display with a diagonal of 10.1 that will allow you to remove the MMI controller on the tunnel.

Large honeycomb in the grille of the test sample implying that we got a copy with the S line package. And it looks like there will not be a controversial design element: false air intake at the junction of the grille and hood, like the A4/S4. But the prototype of Sportbike there was another fake — huge trapezoidal exhaust pipes at the edges of the rear bumper, alas, purely decorative. By the way, the recent spy pictures of the facelifted S5 Coupe showed the same design of the nose of the car, only exhaust pipes she had some “honest” four kruglyashey.

Although the headlight there from a distance resembles the optics of A4, in fact, their shape is not identical. But the new running lights/turn signals in the form of a dotted line on top edge — similar to “a fourth.” The front bumper is also similar to the A4 model and still not the same as the number of elements.

Correction appearance update “a fifth” is not limited. As the pyatidverka, and coupe we’re waiting for changes in the engine lineup — in particular, adding a moderate hybrid systems based on a simple 12-volt network for the four engines and on the basis of 48-volt — V6 (for example, the April technical update S5). All the new clothes in appearance, interior and electronics will move later on the “hot” model of the Audi RS5, which we can assume a small upgrade impact (now there is a 2.9 V6 turbo engine at 450 HP and 600 N•m).
