Default New Lexus IS 250 Convertible

Lexus IS 250 Convertible Revealed in Paris

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.

Nice find again Hanmust. i like this design, it retains the sofisticated and stylish appeal. I wonder when Lexus would bring themselves to India.

Really love this Lexus!
I was always a Lexus fan and would be very glad to own one.

Anybody know more about this one's engine options? Hope Toyota has plonked in a spine chiller!

Thanks for putting this here, Han!

Two words - Chick car (like the Miata).

Looks a bit manly with the hardtop up though.

Good job in the interior department. Any news on the pricing?
