Lexus is calling the concept an 'open-top design study," but as the 2+2 roadster shares so many of its styling traits with the RC coupé, it's easy to see how this could act as a preview to an RC convertible.
The Japanese firm says the LF-C2 has been designed "to give driver and passenger the best top-down driving experience."
As this is a design study, most of the focus rests on the concept's styling. The roadster does without a roof and features a new 'experimental' take on Lexus's signature grille design, which dominates the nose.
Vents in the front bumper and in front of the rear wheels are designed to keep the brakes cool at high speeds and hint at the LF-C2's performance, as do the four exhaust pipes. The concept sits on 20-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the dashboard features a central screen controlled by a touchpad and LED lights that sit just beneath the window line and run the full length of the cabin.
