The Lexus IS 250 drops its top at the Mondial de l’Automobile in Paris today. Showcasing a three-piece folding aluminium top which does so in 20 seconds, the IS 250C will be available in spring 2009 in the U.S. followed by UK in the summer.

In order to accommodate the convertible configuration, only the bonnet, headlamps, door handles and mirrors have been retained compared to the IS saloon. All other body panels have been redesigned to maintain design harmony with the three-part folding roof.

See press release below for full details.
