Lexus RC Convertible rendered for your pleasure

Now we have been treated to the first photos of the new Lexus RC Coupe, speculation and imagination can hit full swing on a convertible variant. This new rendering has been complete by artist Theophilus Chin and gives a first look at what the model could look like.

Would Lexus go with a hard-top or soft-top? Theophilus has stated his preference for the fabric option which would certainly assist the model with its performance figures but it isn't as practical as the heavier hard-top option.

Should Lexus decide to build an open-top variant, we would expect it to inherit the same engine options employed by its sibling. This would include a range topping V6 3.5-liter gasoline engine and a hybrid option that consists of an electric motor and a 2.5-liter engine.

If we are really lucky, we could also be treated to a hardcore RC F Convertible. Rumors have stated a powerful 5.0-liter V8 is set to be employed with output rated at around 455 bhp (339 kW) and 543 Nm (401 lb-ft) of torque.

The Lexus RC Convertible ticks all the right boxes as far as WCF staffers are concerned. Do you agree? Let us know below.
