LEXUS IN PARIS Thursday 26th August



European Debut for Drop top Roadster

Lexus will use the opportunity of the Paris Motor Show to display both its latest future concept car, the LF-C, and to showcase two new production models which will be launched in Europe in 2005: the new generation GS and the hybrid power RX400h. In addition, the Lexus stand will also focus on revisions to the current model range, including the development of DVD-navigation systems with Bluetooth wireless technology for the RX300 and SC430.

The Lexus LF-C concept car will be making its European debut at the Paris Motor Show. The vehicle is the third in a series of concept studies that have been created to express a new Lexus design rationale, following on from models presented in Tokyo last year.

The car is constructed on a rear-wheel drive platform with a front-mounted V8 engine. The principle feature of the body is a retractable hard top that can be moved through four different positions. This unique element, the work of the Calty Design Centre in California, allows the car to be changed from a coupe to a convertible with targa and speedster configurations in between.

The roof is fully automatic, controlled by the touch of a button, and stows neatly away through a narrow opening in the boot.
